I have looked on askUbuntu but there are only old answers to this question that I can find.

I have a wide image that is designed for two monitors. I am on Ubuntu 18.04. I choose the wallpaper and it is displayed twice on each monitor.

How can I get it to stretch across both monitors?

Thank you!

    this is not an answer but an alternative: I have always found it more convenient to use GIMP to separate the image into two separate image files, one for each monitor. – Nmath Jun 20 at 0:10
  • Thanks for the reply. But even then there's only one wallpaper option (not two). – robster Jun 20 at 0:26
  • Ease of customization generally boils down to choice of DE. GNOME3 in particular has a dearth of customization options. It's possible you may need additional software to customize – Nmath Jun 20 at 2:55
  • Thanks for the link. I had to cut it in two as suggested then use HydraPaper to get it to work. Surprising that it took a third party app, but there it is. Thanks again – robster Jun 20 at 3:56
