    [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 " Configured"
    Screen "Screen0"
    InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
    InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

    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.
    I refuse to let fear and fear of others rule my life. It puts my humanity at risk.
