    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
    Swerdna

    I'm 11.0 with beta 4.2 kde4 and you still cannot do this mate. Sucks a
    bit doesn't it.

    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).
