I have a dual monitor setup and I'd like to have a different wallpaper for each monitor. I found two programs in this post: http://www.webupd8.org/2012/10/ubuntu-multi-monitor-tweaks-full-screen.html

Neither of them work for elementary OS. Does anyone know of program or settings to change to make this possible?

  • I installed it and looked in the options, it doesn't look like there's an option in there for dual monitors. – Winski Tech Jul 21 '15 at 17:50
  • Have you tried to setup a single huge wallpaper and then tile it? – user137826 Oct 9 '15 at 21:41

You can use HydraPaper. It's available to install with flatpak. To install it on Elementary OS you need first to install flatpak:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt install flatpak

flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo

Then you can install HydraPaper by running:

flatpak install flathub org.gabmus.hydrapaper

To run the program just run:

flatpak run org.gabmus.hydrapaper

The next time when you login to your system you will find the program in your application menu.
