Package: xfdesktop4

Version: 4.12.3-3

I have a recently devuan 2.0 ASCII installation on a two monitors computer =
and I can't change the backgrounds. By default, after installation I have o=
n main screen the default wallpaper of Devuan from /usr/share/images/deskto=
p-base and in secondary screen a image from /usr/share/backgrounds/xfce.

When I open the dialog that allows me to choose an image from a different d=
irectory, I can't choose a different directory from the original (they are =
grayed out) one so I only can choose a background from /usr/share/images/de=
sktop-base for primary monitor or images from /usr/share/backgrounds/xfce f=
or the secondary one.

If I try to set the wallpaper directly from the image (with Ristretto for e=
xample) it only affects to the primary monitor but I can't find a method fo=
r choose a different background for the secondary monitor except choose bet=
ween the two on /usr/share/backgrounds/xfce
