This app I wrote for what seems to be a popular desire: Different wallpapers for each desktop.

# Apparently only KDE does this wallpaper per desktop thing. Seems odd that no others have it.
There is Wallpapoz that does it also: http://vajrasky.wordpress.com/
It requires Python, and is for Gnome and Xfce ( I think...).

I saw a post a while back about setting up Rox to do this, but it didn`t work for me...
Currently it only does Rox desktop. But I`ll add other DMs too as I figure them out.

You write a wallpaper list to a file: wallpapers.lst, there`s one included just edit it how you want.
It can have any number of /path/wallpapers in it, but only up to the number of desktops is used.
I will be making a GUI to do this, but I want to make it into a tray app.

# To test run in rxvt, run it with the DM as argument:
wallpapers rox


#To install so it starts at boot, use argument for Puppy+Rox: ( makes Startup file )
wallpapers -ipr

#To uninstall wallpapers, use argument for Puppy: ( removes Startup file )
wallpapers -ip


# To stop wallpapers, run again with "stop":
wallpapers stop

# For help wallpapers, run run with no argument, or "-h", or "help":
wallpapers


# It uses "wmctrl" that I compiled on Precise. But it`s a simple utility, maybe work for any arch.


And added a over-range check for the wallpaper array.
Changed command to set wallpaper image. Thanks SFR..!

Reworked it and fixed the problem of no wallpaper at start up.

Also made it copy everything to /tmp so the H.D. isn`t over-worked.

NOTE: It still has the problem, but I`ve got a more complex fix working.
