Debian Lenny Gnome Desktop Differentiation Capability
As stated in the tile, I am running Gnome on top of Debian Lenny. I have configured Gnome to provide me with several desktops, which I use for specific functions (one for music, one for wordprocessing, one for graphics, etc . . .).
Is there a way to:
a) change the backgrounds of the different desktops independently of each other? This will make it much easier to tell at a glance which desktop is currently visible. If Gnome is configured for 6 Desktops, the I would like to use 6 different desktop wallpapers, a different one for each desktop.
b) assign icons to only one desktop, or a specific subset of desktops? This will further specialize the environment for a given purpose. In this instance, I would put my shortcut Icons for a specific group of programs on only those desktops that they are applicable to.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
You probably can't do this with gnome. Actually, a) may be possible but I seriously doubt if you could achieve b). Try firing up gconf-editor and having a look around.
The philosophy of Gnome tends to be more in providing "sensible" defaults, with only limited scope for customization.
Thanks for the input. I will search around and locate the gconf-editor, and from there see what I can do. By the way, where is this configuration control normally located?
I will admit that putting Icons on only those desktops for which they are applicable would be nice, but it is by no means essential.
