I was wondering if anyone knew if it was possible to set different desktop wallpapers to each individual workspace?

Thanks.

Can you give me steps in which to do that? Typically when I download something I am never able to locate it afterwards so i can extract the files.

hey, let me show you how I installed it on my system.
I've opened up gnome-terminal and then downloaded the file:

elgreko@hilbert:~$ wget http://wallpapoz.akbarhome.com/files/wallpapoz-0.4.1.tar.bz2

then I've unpacked it:

elgreko@hilbert:~$ tar jxvf wallpapoz-0.4.1.tar.bz2

then 'cd' into the unpacked directory:

elgreko@hilbert:~$ cd wallpapoz-0.4.1

once there, I've just run the install script:

elgreko@hilbert:~/wallpapoz-0.4.1$ sudo python setup.py install

and there, it's installed. you can then remove the source code and the archive:

elgreko@hilbert:~/wallpapoz-0.4.1$ cd .. && rm -rf wallpapoz-0.4.1*

If you have problems finding file once you download them with Firefox, take a look at where the default download path is in Firefox preferences.
