"Used to be, with GNOME it was simple to have multiple wallpapers configured so that each desktop would have its own wallpaper. But then Compiz came along and monkeyed with that option. But that option isn't completely gone. You can still set it up, at the cost of desktop icons, with a little bit of configuration.

"But why would you want multiple desktop wallpaper? It seems like nothing more than aesthetics? To many that is true – but for some power users it can make it quite obvious what desktop is for what job. I am one of those users that prefers to work with multiple desktops. It just makes work so much more efficient. But when you're using Compiz (and why shouldn't you be?) Setting up multiple wallpapers isn't as simple as adding a new wallpaper to your existing configuration. In this tutorial you will see just how to set up Compiz to work with multiple wallpaper."
