I used arandr (a GUI for xrandr) to set up two monitors side by side in my xfce/xubuntu DE. However, the wallpaper that set using the xfce settings manager applies only to one monitor, while the other uses the default wallpaper.

Does anyone know how to set a wallpaper that will apply to both monitors?

One wallpaper on both monitors or a different wallpaper on each monitor? xfce settings allows you to set a background image for each monitor, look closer. –  bodhi.zazen Jun 11 '14 at 20:27
Oh, you're right, thank you! I missed that. If you'd like, add it as an answer and I'll mark it resolved. –  dmi_ Jun 11 '14 at 20:40
