How can I wallpaper multiple monitors in Linux in an automated way?
Basically how I normally do it is open up GIMP, and then grab several images and composite it together into a single large image that would span all monitors. This approach works, but it can be time consuming so I am wondering if there exists an application that can take care of this?
Some features that I would be interested in:
- Can resize a single image to cover both monitor for example.
- Different way of resizing the image, such as keeping the aspect ratio or not
- Composite more than 1 image together so that one screen will display one image and the other screen will display another image
- I'm using xinerama (Really Nvidia Twinview)
Have the ability to do some basic modification to the image such as:
- Crop one or the other image so that the whole image will fill the screen
- Ability to move the image around so it can get aligned
- Would be nice to be able to scale each image separately
I've done some searching and in general what I found was:
- Single image as wallpaper stretched cross two screen
- Two image, one for each screen but no ability to modify the image/etc
- Couple others, but basically most that I found were not able to use multiple images with one image on each desktop and independently modify each image to fit/work on that screen, and also unable to switch between single image stretched cross all screen or multiple images.
