Hi, jimwg.

What are you doing / not doing to get it to work? First you need to create 3 distinct
"PuppyPin" 's (as PuppyPin1, 2, and "vide", if I remember correctly. [I'm not on that
Puppy right now.]) So, it needs some "installation".

As I mentioned, you'll get errors if you try to use the scripts as they are. The reason is I
can't know what you want displayed / not displayed on your various desktops. The
script structure is sound, I'm sure, but the variables, i.e. what you want on your
desktops, are in your head ! Smile

That said, I can "coach" you, if you wish. That may provide a nice example of the
process for other members, too.

BFN.

Hello, jimwg.

I'm not familiar with Porteus depots, but you can have your pick here:
http://pkgs.org/search/?keyword=wmctrl

In the meantime, here's one for Puppy... Smile

BTW, any luck with changing the ROX pinboards?

Best regards.

Very Happy

Fantastic! After much fumbling and stumbling I finally have multiple customized desktop wallpapers! Thanks a trillion for the help! Now, if I can just be glutton in seeking a way to also separately clock down the minimum slide-show render period in XFCE from one minute down to at least ten seconds. Wallch does ten seconds in Mint but there's no working version in Puppy! Sad

But super thanks for the help!
