    Hi
    Right click on the screen in question and from there you should be able
    to select the background settings. Plain desktop, folder view etc.

    Sorry that i didn't said exactly what I mean. So I mean one wallpaper in high resolution 3360x1050 on two desktops as one stretched wallpaper. I had previously Ubuntu and it was possible there.

    This was possible on KDE 3.X, not so much on 4.x at the moment.
    You could split the wallpaper in half using GIMP and then assign each piece
    to a different monitor. That's what I did. Although ironically the
    wallpaper I cut in half, I had originally constructed as a large
    'dualscreen' wallpaper because I couldn't get KDE 3.X to assign a different
    wallpaper to each screen...LOL.

    Hi
    Yes, create two different ones, not sure on KDE4 but you could try
    enabling the Xinerama option in /etc/X11/xorg.conf which will require a
    restart of the xserver.

    I enabled Xinerama as well and it did not help, that's why I suggested
    cutting it in half. It may be that large dualscreen wallpaper use just
    isn't exposed in Plasma or whatever is controlling the wallpapers.
