Re: Cinnamon Wallpaper/Workspace Code

Ok
Same thread more detailed question.
Does Cinnamon use the GNOME libwnck library to create and manage its virtuarl desktops.
If so does someone know where and how and would it break Cinnamon (ie is it so deep in that changing things could change many things) ?

Thanks Greg

Re: Different desktops different image.

Well Dngrsone I tried that all it managed to do is double the size of the image and centre on that image on all desktops.
I don't think it's the image size that does it.
Something is strange about Kyriakos Spanoudis's Wood.jpg at 3968 x 2624 image

Just some wierd bug but interesting though.

Different desktops different image. [STUMPED] [SOLVED]

It seems that the ability to have different desktops with different backgrounds is possible. Oliva's Cinnamon Wallpaper Wood appears differently on each different desktop (1 screen). Does anyone know how this is done. It only seems to work with the Wood background none of the others. What is so spec...
