Or we'll just discuss that later in an appropriate thread for that.

 

That's fine with me

 

But I did learn something new from el Jefe today re menu

If panning is enabled, the behavior you described is affected considerably, as the mouse does not detect the edge of the work area, and the menu will not shift yet, because it is also aware that there is still 'space' left.

 

If you try and drag any window to the right, you will find that the visible workspace shifts to follow until it reaches that limit, and the expected behavior kicks in like the usual.

 

When I had the desktop with the nvidia, I had two displays. When I sold the second display I turned on panning using nvidia's configuration tool. (This way I had a little bit more than 1280x786, and my workspace was 1440x900) I couldn't have that setup at work, so I turned off panning.

 

The panning was set using xrandr on the command line. Perhaps you can turn panning off and pick a screen size that matches the workspace; let me know if you get the idea or know how to set it right (here's a lead: the ThinkWiki for thinkpads lists several scenarios for xrandr). You could be using 1024x768, even though you 'see' only the 1024x600. If there is an extra monitor to show you that entire display you can try it out by setting it as primary only/one display only.

Do you know what file manager you have, I think I have both pcmanfm and thunar, and it's in thunar where a right-click on any image (*.png or *.jpg or *tif) shows that context menu with Set as wallpaper) BTW I also have Esetroot installed from eterm, and I think it may have added to that context menu in post-installation)

 

But your description of the steps is correct, after clicking on set you are shown another dialog so you can select the image you want, afterwards, yet another dialog asking if you wanted the image centered, stretched, tiled, mirrored, fit, etc.

After setting up the wallpaper for a certain workspace, you have to back up to the preceding step and select the next workspace to set up a different wallpaper. There are other ways to get to the result e.g. right-clicking on the desktop if I remember correctly, or selecting an image from the file manager to prompt for Use as wallpaper which in turn brings up a different dialog (this may be dependent on one's preferred file manager thunar, pcmanfm,nautilus, mc
