Debian Jessie with xorg, jwm (windows manager), rox (desktop icons manager)

Different wallpapers and desktop icons on each desktop. 3 desktops in total is enough for my needs and I have the first as a general type desktop, the second as a workspace/browsing, and the third is for multi-media.

Have set the taskbar to show open programs from all desktops so that clicking on any one jumps you to the relevant desktop. You can also drag/drop windows to the screen edges to move a window to another desktop, or use the Pager next to the main menu button to move windows around.

I have brightside installed and I used brightside-properties to set a top left hot corner (mouse into corner) that toggles show/hide desktop, so when a window is full screen its just a case of mouse into that corner to reveal the desktop icons for that desktop.

Could have used SOAP to modify the desktop (which is a xml file in Rox), however I opted for an alternative approach and have a ~/.jwmrc (jwm configuration) file content that includes
Code: Select all
    <!-- Number of virtual desktops -->
    <Desktops width="3" height="1">
       <Desktop><Background type="command">rox -p /home/ff/.rox/Pin1</Background></Desktop>
       <Desktop><Background type="command">rox -p /home/ff/.rox/Pin2</Background></Desktop>
       <Desktop><Background type="command">rox -p /home/ff/.rox/Pin3</Background></Desktop>
    </Desktops>

(rox -p is the command/parameter to set a active Pin (desktop))

EDIT :

Created three .desktop files that basically run rox -p pin1 (2,3) i.e. one for each desktop and I'm including those as icons on each desktop (towards the right screen edge) as a means to switch between the different desktops.
