Xfce over Kubuntu 18.04

Hello

I am still searching a decent Desktop which allows me to have different Wallpapers on different desktops. I seems Xface is the only DT which offers this most important feature natively.
My main OS is at present still Kubuntu 14.04 but as they cut off support coming May or so, I want to be prepared with what I will be using as soon as possible.

Hence I have superinstalled Xfce on a new Kubuntu 18.04 distro. Seems to have gone OK

But now I do have a question, how can I work with all the changements from Kubuntu to Xfce? How to install the different features?

As the installation of both are not elder that about 4 days, and the whole is still in a trial state, I do not mind to erase this Partition and start the installation from scratch. If you think this is best, let me know and possibla refer me to some sources which explain how such a «marriage» function.

Specifically which features are you referring to? Xfce may have an alternative or you can easily integrate other GTK2/3 apps.

Re: Xfce over Kubuntu 18.04

Hello and thnks for your quick reply.

May ideal would be something based on Ubuntu and ressembles KDE neon. But with different Wallpapers on the desktop, and possibly different widgets as well (a boon, but not really necessary).

I am not an afficionado of everything OpenSource, so I am also happy to have installed other apps, especially in the entertaining segment. And for very critical things, I accept even a small payment, like for my printer's drivers.

So, I am open to suggestions

I like to shoot photos and use them on my desktop as wallpapers. Bar a bottom and a vertical bar on the right the desktop is usually total empty and will only be filled when I use it for working.
Ideal, as my monitor has 2600 x 1650 pixels and is about 60 x 40 cm.

How can I include pictures here?

OK, then let's go with my first picture this way:

with this code:

Sorry, despite many time reading, I end always with this result.

The picture is here:

Re: Xfce over Kubuntu 18.04

When you go to the image page (https://ibb.co/p04h4c8) click on the "Embed Codes" tab at the bottom. Copy the "BB Code" from the Thumbnail section at the bottom and past it directly into this forum's reply box.

The end result is:

Does this help?

Re: Xfce over Kubuntu 18.04

Yes it does, thanks very much. Except that the picture is not square but has X = 2600 and Y 1650 pixels.

I reduced the size without changing the ratio down to 1000/ 600px

From my part this is my last posting, we are off for a longish weekend and be back earliest on Saturday (not very likely due to heavy weather on the Ferry, Monday would be more likely.
