There was a similar post for Xubuntu previously.

At the moment I have the standard two workspaces, I would like to add another one, but i'm not sure how to do this?

Thanks in advance!

Right click on the workspace icon.

More specifically, right-click on the workspace selector and click preferences. You can adjust how many columns and rows of workspaces you have.

Gnome will only allow you to set wallpaper on 2 workspaces

If you wish to have wallpaper on three or more you will need to install a program such as "Wallpapoz-0.4.1

What do you mean? I have 4 workspaces, and my wallpaper shows up on all 4. Are you setting individual wallpapers on each desktop somehow?

I have (4) workspace and have (4) different wallpapers

To have more than (2) different one in gnome you have to use this program http://wallpapoz.akbarhome.com/ it is a Gnome wallpaper configuration tool

Kubuntu will allow more than 2 different wallpapers if you are using that distro

Its your choice if you want to see the same wallpaper on each workspace or use wallpapoz and see a different one on each workspace

Hope this helps
