17 Here's what I did which seems to work nicely:
19 Created an auto hide panel centered on top edge.
21 Added the activity bar widget to this panel.
23 Create Activity (cashew, Zoom Out, alt-D alt-A, then select setup
24 (wrench icon) (you may have to grab and scroll the desktop to see the
25 commands) and name the activity. You can also set the background here.
27 Use the Activity Bar to select another activity. Note, the first time
28 after adding an activity, the activity bar has a bug where it will
29 show the names for all of the activities, but will draw n-1 buttons.
30 Just click on one button then the activity bar will be correct.
32 Now on any activity, you can right click the desktop and choose
33 Desktop Settings, then change the background.
35 HTH,
