I'm looking for a way to strecth my wallpaper across multiple virtual desktops (workspaces).

How do I achieve that in Ubuntu. Is there an option in Compiz for that?

You might want to take a look at this thread on the Ubuntu forums... The specific fix is to Download the 'Gnome Tweak Tool', now called 'Advanced Setting' in the Ubuntu Software Centre. Once installed, run it and look for 'Desktop'. Turn off 'Have file manager handle the desktop'. – Breakthrough Apr 17 '12 at 16:01
