I was wondering if it is possible to have four different wallpapers on four different monitors using one video card. I am using the nVidia X Server settings in KDE Plasma and it shows the same background across all four monitors. I can change the background on one monitor but not on all monitors (different backgrounds). The Nvidia server settings program identifies all my monitors correctly and I am using a nvidia RTX 2070 Super video card.

I'm not sure if plasma allow it, a workaround is merge four wallpaper in one and use it.

feh and nitrogen will do it easily, so plasma should too or be very embarrassed. I seem to recall it being possible, but I haven't touched KDE for about 7 years.

According to a little googling, you want to go to system settings desktop-> multiple desktops and enable different activity for each desktop.

Apologies if I take a while to respond. I'm currently working on the dematerialization circuit for my blue box.

I learnt last week, that the virtual desktops all have to have the same wallpaper - whereas with KDE activities you can have different wallpaper fer each activity.
