Set individual wallpaper for workspaces. Similar to spaces on Mac

Asked by Ryan on 2013-02-20

Hello, I was wondering if there was away if possible to incorporate the comipiz plugin features. Please see quoted reply from Ubuntu fourms

"Ubuntu 10.04

You can get the Wallpaper plugin for Compiz by installing compiz-fusion-plugins-extra (sudo apt-get install compiz-fusion-plugins-extra). It will show up under the Utility category in CompizConfig Settings Manager.

Before you can use it, you'll have to configure Nautilus to not draw the desktop. Run gconf-editor and uncheck the setting /apps/nautilus/preferences/show_desktop. This will make all of your desktop icons disappear, and there is no solution to this drawback at this time.

To configure the Wallpaper plugin, add images to the list of backgrounds. They will be assigned to workspaces in the order they are listed, and you don't have to have the exact right number:"

Is there a way he developers could incorporate the function of the compiz plugin into a plugin/setting for the unity tweak tool? If so then I would be very grateful,so I could have all my settings I need for tweaking unity in one place. ,

Unity tweak tool tweaks only compiz plugins that come out of the box. Making and advanced more of it that would allow to tweak other compiz plugins would require designing and coding panes for not only this specific request of yours. Also - installing, enabling and tweaking not out of the box compiz plugins may brake your system and needless to say we don't wannabe responsible for that.
You better take this request to upstream - Ubuntu System Settings -> Appearance is the one that handles the wallpapers, so request such an option for it :)

Can you help with this problem?
