I attached a seconds monitor to my PC and now I would like to set a different background for each screen with feh (or nitrogen).

Apparently this can be achieved with:

Code:

DISPLAY=:0.0 feh --bg-max <image>
DISPLAY=:0.1 feh --bg-max <image> # for the second monitor


Unfortunatley I have only one DISPLAY according to my env:

Code:

$ env |grep DIS
DISPLAY=:0.0


So ... is this an error in my configuration? Or am I missing something here?

vlynd ...

in the above 'feh' command you are defining 'DISPLAY=' and not reading it from the env (and so the command should work as expected).

best ... khay
