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 on main screen the default wallpaper of Devuan from /usr/share/images/desktop-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 directory, 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/desktop-base for primary monitor or images from /usr/share/backgrounds/xfce for the secondary one.

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