im trying to put in different images for each workspace (i have all the images ready) but every time i try to load up gconf-editor is says its not there or something... i went into the settings and i have a dconf but no gconf... also when i load up the dconf editor i cant find nautilus under the apps to change the desktop setting to use compizconfig to set the different workspaces. im currently running 12.10 and ive installed nautilus and compizconfig. i also tried installing the compizconfig extras but it says unable to locate compizconfig-fusion-plugins-extra. please help and thank you :D

EDIT: i finally got everything installed and working but im still not seeing the "wallpaper" icon on the CCSM utilities tab to be able to change the settings so that i can have multiple workspace wallpapers....

EDIT: i'm running compiz if that helps anyone out too

I found out that there is a newer version of compiz which is You might want to try it. 1st remove your ccsm, then add the ccsm ppa, run apt-get update, and install ccsm again. launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/compizconfig-settings-manager –  Suhaib Oct 21 '12 at 21:57
ok i may sound like a retard on this one, but doesnt come after 8 sounds bigger then 5... –  Azarius Jenkins Oct 21 '12 at 22:53
hahaha. actually i am the retard. but this is weird check the history launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/compizconfig-settings-manager/… they deleted the package for 12.10. may its because of the wallpaper not showing up ? –  Suhaib Oct 22 '12 at 0:08
