NX - black background

I am trying to install nomachine NX on several Centos based machines.
I am installing using the rpms from the nomachine site.

The install goes as expected without problems.

When the remote client connects (ether the windows or linux client) the gnome remote desktop is displayed with the top taskbar   intact and functional and a terminal window (with the window chrome)  but the desktop area is black (no wall paper shows).  I cannot even change the color.

Applications seem to work  but I have no control of the wallpaper - any ideas

I found the issue - there was a export xterm buried in a bashrc file .  commented that out and it operates correctly
