1 With Plasma 5, the option to have different backgrounds and widgets on
2 different virtual desktops is gone, and I miss it. There is work being
3 done to get something like that back -- at least I think so, from
4 <>. (Do not read that
5 bug report unless you're prepared to wade through an astonishing about
6 of whiny bugspam -- I just did, and my eyes are bleeding.)
8 AIUI now, the closest thing that can be done to get something like
9 distinct virtual desktops involves setting up different activities and
10 using the Activity Pager widget to switch between them. Ideally, I
11 need a simple set of instructions on how to do that, written for the
12 user (me) to whom activities are a complete mystery. I've searched,
13 but can't find anything close to that. Does anybody know of a good
14 resource to help me?
