MBWALLPAPER + display 1…
I Extended Mbwallpaper so that It can control two monitors separately with backgrounds.
Pcmanwp is focused on 1 monitor, and spreads the image across the two monitors. Which can also be fun, by the way. And still possible.
I was only able with Nitrogen (gui) to set wallpapers for both display’s.
Created a copy of mbwallpapers and using it for the extended display.
Below the commands I modified and added.
1 : JGWALLPAPERCHANGER
# Menu item for second monitor
MONITOR2_WP="Wallpaper for second monitor..."
- Replaced pcmanwp for mbwallpaper -c.
- Created a copy of mbwallpaper for extended monitor. (mbwallpaper2mon)
out+=("<big></big> $CHOOSE_WP,mbwallpaper -c")
out+=("<big></big> $MONITOR2_WP,mbwallpaper2mon -c")
out+=("<big></big> $RANDWALL,mbwallpaper -o;mbwallpaper2mon -o;$me")
Force display 0 (default)
nitrogen) command="nitrogen --head=0 --set-scaled --save"
Force display 1 (extended)
nitrogen) command="nitrogen --head=1 --set-scaled --save"

The video workflow is slower than in reality, due to screenrec.
Lots of interesting things in the video
This is what i use now for changing colors of the animation inside conky. When changing backgrounds.
But should be automated. in development …
