2 different wallpapers doesn't work on Ubuntu 18.04

Bug Description


It works only when setting the same wallpaper on both monitors. By default Nitrogen doesn't show 2 monitors option. When running "nitrogen --force-setter=xinerama", it shows 2 monitors option but it doesn't change the wallpapers.

Actually I use tint2 and I can see it changes the wallpapers on 2 monitors but only behind the small bottom bar, not the entire screen. It looks like it works but GNOME put its own wallpaper after, so we do not see it.

It was working with the same computer with Ubuntu 16.04. I have the same problem on another computer with 18.04 with 2 monitors.

OS : Ubuntu 18.04 up to date
GNOME : 3.28.1
Nitrogen : 1.6.1-2
graphic drivers : Nvidia 390.48

Best regards,
