    Triple screen - separate wallpapers per screen

    Hey guys,

    I have 3 monitors of varying sizes and resolutions and I'm looking for a way to at least have separate wallpapers on each screen. Ideally I would a timed rotation that pulled from separate folders for each screen.

    I would also love to be able to have a panel that spans all 3 screens.

    Basically something that mimics the functionality of UltraMon from windows.

    I'm a gnome 2 user running 10.10 but I'm not opposed to trying something else.

    I don't know if there is a built-in way to span wallpapers like that; but, what I did when I had two monitors of different sizes was to create a large wallpaper and put two different pictures on it in the right places.

    You could regularly change the wallpaper by using a script and ImageMagick. It's not too tricky, but you have to know the size of each monitor and their relative positions.

    I don't know any way to spread a panel across the monitors.
