nice wallpaper, where did you find it?
That red Debian wallpaper came from here.

Here's a screenshot from my Mac:

And that wallpaper is located here for any PPC geeks out there.

i like e16 very much, because it offers to have different background images for every virtual desktop. do other window managers have that option as well?

Metacity does not offer that option, so that throws GNOME out the window. I do not know XFCE. KDE however, does allow you to have a different wallpaper or color per viewport. There is a per desktop option dropdown in KDE's desktop control panel. Whether or not this is natively supported in Kwin I do not know. It may be just a hack on top of Kwin. Note, KDE calls viewports "desktops".

Here is my Debian 4.0. On my desktop I am using Unofficial Tango icons, 2007.03.03, Bluecurve-Grape controls, Bluecurve Classic window border, and Gnome Curves wallpaper. I am currently using a 1600x1200 resolution.

Mmmmm.... grape. :lol:

From my experience: Gnome applies one wallpaper to all desktops. KDE allows one to be set for each desktop or one for all. XFCE allows you to specify a list of wallpapers to be chosen from randomly on startup, but still applies the result to all desktops.

I used to use Gnome and am currently using XFCE, so I'm envying that granularity of control on the KDE side of things, though not enough to provoke a switch.

My desktop is here. It's actually twice that size, but the second monitor (to the right of that one) is the exact same minus panels, so I cut it out.

I wasn't going to post mine as I've only been running Deb for a month for the second time in 9 years but when I walked in and looked at my desktop this morning I thought it was one of the nicest things I have seen on a computer in a loooong time. I have been waiting 9 years to have enough time and for the distros (Deb and a wm, KDE in this case) to be mature enough to be an easy (somewhat) install. Finally! And to be honest I did not expect to succeed with a Dell laptop. A very pleasant suprise.

That's the wallpaper from the Debian Brushed Steel theme.
