Smile [Solved] Missing where to set individual virtual desktops wallpaper, Fedora 12 w/KDE


Hi, I use 4 virtual desktops and under Fedora 8 and KDE was able for each to have a unique wallpaper.
Since installing Fedora 12 and KDE I can't seem to find a way to get that feature. I can name each virtual desktop but not set individual wallpaper.

I've searched the documents for both KDE and Fedora, they say how to set the wallpaper but not for individual desktops.

Has this feature been removed?

Thanks for any help,
John

Fedora 12 uses KDE4 and Fedora 8 uses KDE3, so the setup is different. With KDE4 you need to set each desktop to be associated with an activity. Read through the thread at this
Google Group to see how to do it. The last post is probably the best explanation. Unfortunately, it is more difficult than it used to be, but that may change with future releases of KDE4.

Thanks for the pointer, it was spot on.
