Trying to get multiple backgrounds for different workspaces in 11.10, but having some difficulty. Every guide I see says to change the Nautilus setting "Show Desktop" to unchecked, but I don't have that setting at all. Help?

It is dconf-editor under /org/gnome/desktop/background as show-desktop-icons in GNOME 3.x versions, which is the version of Nautilus in Ubuntu 11.10.
