Bug Description

Binary package hint: netbook-launcher

The nice thing about compiz wallpaper is that you can have different backgrounds for different workspaces. Whenever I have compiz wallpaper enabled, however, and then I start the netbook launcher, it reverts to metacity wallpaper or goes white.

How is this a "Wishlist" item? If Compiz can be installed and used, all its functionality should also be permitted, including, but not limited to, Compiz wallpapers. Why isn't this as easy as going into gconf-editor and changing a setting? Besides, what does netbook-launcher have anything to do with the wallpaper anyway?

surely this can be sorted.. apparently the netbook-launcher draws its own "desktop" like nautilus does so surely the option of disabling the background should be allowed through gconf-editor?

No it can't, the clutter actor is masking the background. That's why the key is mandatory.
