Re: [opensuse] Workspaces X Wallpapers (KDE4)

Same here: setting a wallpaper for one workspace just sets the same for all
eight of my workspaces (virtual desktops, actually; are we talking about the
same thing at all, i.e. is workspace=desktop?).
And no, this is not a visual gimmick: I need this feature to differentiate
between my various areas of work at a glance. If you have, say, eight
instances of a program open, each for performing a specific work task, it
helps hugely to have eight different wallpapers or desktop colors to
immediately warn you which task you're currently on. It really helps
productivity, believe me. Actually, for me, it's the compelling reason
(besides, uhm, overall desktop stability) why I just can't switch to KDE4
although I really want to.
So, could anyone be so kind as to advise what steps to perform in order to set
different wallpapers (or desktop background colors at least) for different
virtual desktops in KDE4? Does this work in the default openSUSE11.1 install
at all, or do you need to update KDE4 from some external repo?

At first: sorry for the accusation... blame it on me the fact I forgot
the cultural difference between our countries. Here, it could be normal,
not offensive :(
I got a little stressed seeing the way my topic follows... It is not
anymore a discussion about how to set different wallpapers: it's a
discussion about KDE's quality... It became a simple flame war, except
for a little group that still discuss about the real problem.
I tried here to set a wallpaper in each workspace, but it sets the same
for every workspace. So, if there's any other option that have to be
changed, please let us know.
And I still don't know two things: when is KDE 4.2 being released? And
is it coming with Suse 11.2?
Thanks and sorry...

A dumb brazilian :(

Sad, very sad...

Please, reply to the list.
I answered your question in my other reply.
I wasn't laughing in anyone's face, and I would appreciate it if you
would take that childish accusation back and appologise.

I saw someone making a claim on this list (not being able to set
different wallpapers). You should never take such claims for granted, but
you should always try to simulate the problem. I tried it myself, but it
didn't fail for me, and I reported that back to the list. That's all I
did, in the spirit of cooperation.
