You have to disable "common Background" in this menu. after that it should work

Comment 2 Ian Pilcher 2002-10-07 17:28:51 UTC
I had to disable "common background" before I could even set different backgrounds
for different virtual desktops.  Please note the fact that I can cause the correct
background to display by switching to a different virtual terminal and back,
forcing the background to be redrawn.

Comment 3 Ian Pilcher 2002-10-07 20:38:58 UTC
This bug only appears when "Enable Icons on Desktop" is unselected in the KDE
Control Center.

Comment 4 Ngo Than 2002-10-08 20:15:10 UTC
strange, it works for me even i have unselected "enable Icons on Desktop" and
"Common background". I really cannot reproduce it on many local machine here.

Sorry, i close it as wontfix again
