    Default Wallpapers for Multiple Desktops in KDE4 openSUSE 11.1

    Hi, where I am it's now the 18th December so I've got openSUSE 11.1 and have installed KDE4 Desktop. My question is how to get different wallpapers/backgrounds for the various multiple desktops (AKA the "pager" ?). I can change the background by doing R-click on a desktop --> Desktop Settings --> Wallpaper --> Picture --> and select a different background. But that changes all desktops. How do I make it different for different desktops as was available in KDE3?

    Thanks

    Well it will be a better D.E. than 3, so we wait on the bells and whistles a bit longer -- no matter.

    KDE 4.1.3 is pretty good, but absenсe of this
    feature prevents me from switching:
    when all desktops have one wallpaper
    I just can't tell one from another.
    Though, maybe it's just a matter of habit.

    I used to have separate wall papers for each desktop (in kde3) but I stopped, when I realized my old PCs could not really afford the extra memory (and time to re-display the desktop) this took. By going back to 1 wall paper for all 4 desktops I had a very slight, but noticeable, speed improvement (on my old PCs).

    Has there been an update for this issue. I'm looking to try to have multiple backgrounds now as well.

    It's only (easily) possible in KDE 4.3.

    Correct me if I'm not wrong but is it not possible to have one per workspace though? Ok not a desktop but if you had only one desktop per workspace then it would imitate it.

    Though without the switching ability of the plasma widget, perhaps a little pointless, though if you used shortcuts to switch it would work.
    Man first, have a try at Info, have a look at Wiki, if all that fails Scroogle!!!!!
    If I've helped click on the Rep button I don't know what it does but it sounds cool.

    Okay my understanding now is that 4.2 would have the ablilty to use plasma scripts. So there would a way to do this.

    The comment about 4.3, have you been able to try it?
    If so does work well like KDE 3?
