Thanks for replies all, but please slow down! I'm on XFCE not KDE and wish to assign specific wallpaper to specific workspaces (on one monitor) but I see no "virtual desktops" or folder view layouts in XFCE either, so the basic question is only KDE can perform this feature, correct?

I am a KDE lover. I don't know the other desktops as well. In my 30 minute experiment above, I did a little Google searching. I found an Ubuntu or KDE forum thread and someone said KDE is the only desktop to make this easy. I believe it. Actually they said KDE is the only desktop to do it. Workarounds and plugins can get complicated. Compiz is not maintained. No new wallpaper plugin, sorry. My motto: Get Kurrent, get Kool, get KDE.
