    Are you using gnome of KDE? also, i think it will be a separate option, not part of the default wallpaper changer.

    I've done some googling and even though you'd think this would be a basic feature, it seems there *is* no way to set multiple wallpapers in GNOME. I can't seem to find a single thread where someone offers a way to do this, although there are lots of threads asking how. If this is indeed the case, this is IMHO a major oversight by the GNOME team.

    I welcome any GNOME gurus to prove me wrong. This lack of feature annoys me quite a bit.

    Definitely. In KDE all you have to do is right click on your desktop, go to "Configure Desktop" then "Background". Change the drop down menu to that says "For all Desktops" to "For Desktop X" where X is whatever desktop whose background you want to change, and change it accordingly. I have 4 going myself.

    No kidding! That's great! Again, out of curiousity, is there serious memory hit for having 4 high-res images loaded at once? Are they only loaded once each desktop is selected, or are they all present at once? Hmmm....
