But now for the BIG question: do you know of any "blog", whatever, which
will give 'Masta-Plasma' to have a different wallpaper for different

It's not possible (yet?).

Strictly speaking it never was possible in KDE4 either, but that had an option
to use a separate activity on each virtual desktop, with its own wallpaper.
That option has been removed because it complicated things and caused hard to
debug/fix problems AIUI.

The alternative if you *need* different wallpapers: use only *one* virtual
desktop, and multiple activities.

A pager-like activity switcher (that also shows the windows contained I think)
is available meanwhile too, but it's not included yet though (might be in
Plasma 5.5, which is to be released in December).

I haven't even looked at it myself though... (I didn't use different
wallpapers for the virtual desktops even in KDE3 times, and see no need for
