is it already done??Nautilus can’t draw icons onto a transparent background. This is planned to be fixed in the next version of GNOME and Ubuntu.

I finally did it and LOVE the result. A workspace for school, work, music...
On 9 however you still do sacrifice lack of icons... but I've never been much of one for desktop icons. Hey, did you know you keep the panel? and you can customize the panel with all your launchers, that's how I did it - mini icons!
I did have to install compiz plugins-extra in order to get the multiple wallpapers.

>>compiz is just sleek with the different desktops.

If for any reason you can't find a solution for this and these examples here doesn't resolve your problem making the wallpaper plugin to work and you are using mint.. try this (I am currently using Mint 10):
1. Just enable the wallpaper plugin (No need to enable any of the 3D cube nor cube effects) and add the wallpapers equivalent to your virtual desktops count.
2. Disable the desktop on nautilus as explained above (to open nautilus just use terminal and input "gconf-editor")
3. Once desktop is disabled just press <Super>+p (Windows key+p)
I am a newbie to linux and mint... so dont ask me what it does, it just works. I just learned it has something to do with the variable as_triggerscreen_key. Thanks for the info on this website though. Hope this helps anybody who has been struggling for too much time with this with no luck, like I did.
For wallpaper plugin install package compiz-fusion-plugins-extra

As soon as I go to disable "show desktop" in nautilus, the computer just bogs down, freezes and just can't run, even when rebooted. I'd love to get this to actually work without reverting back to Isadora if anyone has any ideas.

still waiting myself. i think we have 4 choices. 1. fix it ourself i.e. write our own code. 2. wait for someone else to do it. 3. wait for (and hope for) a fix in mint 11 or 4. revert back to mint 9.
all these options suck in my opinion. there has to be an easy fix, like changing one line of code to say something else. or changing a 0 somewhere to a 1, or vice versa. but i just dont know how or where to find this particular data.
any help would be much appreciated linux guru's im willing to experiment if i know where to start.
