Multiple Desktop Wallpapers

Postby jaydee2584 on Sun Jan 13, 2008 12:47 am

Hello:
I have my 4 different desktops, but when I try to change the wallpaper on one of them, it changes for all of them at the same time.
How do I change the wallpaper on the different desktops individually so that all 4 are different?

Tks: John

I think this is what you are looking for.
This is for Gnome only.

KDE supports a different wallpaper for each desktop. Look for a radio button or drop-down box towards the top or the desktop setting box. Gnome only supports one wallpaper. XFCE and other add-ons like emerald can also take over desktop decorations. I used to be a KDE fan until I tried Mint XFCE 008 beta. I finally stopped "Distro Hopping with this version of Mint. I have this installed on http://www.moddedcomputers.com/64_bit_on_a_budget.htm I'm really happy with how this mod turned out and am working on my next modded case.
