    [Fluxbox] Set wallpapers on both monitors in dual setup?


    I have a dual setup and just switched from Xubuntus Xfce? to Fluxbox... But now I can't set wallpapers on both my screens anymore. How do I do that?
    I had to change the Fluxbox menu from Head 1 to Head 2 to get it on my bigger, primary screen. Which is the one getting a wallpaper when I'm setting one.

    Here's my xorg.conf:
    Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier "X.org Configured"
    Screen "Screen0"
    InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
    InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
    EndSection

    Section "Files"
    ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
    FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/misc"
    FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/cyrillic"
    FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi/:unscaled"
    FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi/:unscaled"
    FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/Type1"
    FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi"
    FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi"
    FontPath "/var/lib/defoma/x-ttcidfont-conf.d/dirs/TrueType"
    FontPath "built-ins"
    EndSection

    Section "Module"
    Load "dbe"
    Load "dri"
    Load "extmod"
    Load "dri2"
    Load "record"
    Load "glx"
    EndSection

    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Keyboard0"
    Driver "kbd"
    EndSection

    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Mouse0"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "Protocol" "auto"
    Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"
    EndSection

    Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "Monitor0"
    VendorName "VSC"
    ModelName "VX2435wm"
    HorizSync 30.0 - 82.0
    VertRefresh 50.0 - 76.0
    ModeLine "1920x1200_60" 154.00 1920 1968 2000 2080 1200 1203 1209 1235 +hsync -vsync
    Option "DPMS"
    Option "PreferredMode" "1920x1200"
    Option "LeftOf" "Monitor1"
    EndSection

    Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "Monitor1"
    Option "DPMS"
    Option "PreferredMode" "1280x1024"
    Option "RightOf" "Monitor0"
    EndSection

    Section "Device"

    BusID "PCI:5:0:0"
    Option "monitor-DVI-0" "Monitor0"
    Option "monitor-VGA-0" "Monitor1"
    EndSection

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Screen0"
    Device "Card0"
    Monitor "Monitor0"
    Monitor "Monitor1"
    DefaultDepth 24
    SubSection "Display"
    Depth 24
    Virtual 3200 1200
    EndSubSection
    EndSection

    How to set wallpaper in fluxbox

    In my Fluxbox desktop (which I don't run in Ubuntu by the way) in AntiX I use Nitrogen which comes as a default wallpaper setter in AntiX 8.5 for Icewm and Fluxbox Desktops. When AntiX 11 goes final. We will be using a self made tool for AntiX to change Wallpapers instead of Nitrogen.
