I've been looking around trusty(tongue in cheek) google, as I would quite like different backgrounds for my different workspaces. Now I've found a couple of tutorials online and they all recommend downloading apps - CompizConfig Settings Manager and Avant Window Navigator because " after doing this you will not have link on to your desktop."

I don't want my desktops to disappear, I would just like to have different backgrounds when I go there. Is there any other simple app that can control this kind of function? It seems to me to be a simple one and am surprised after poking around it's not custom.
