Hey all,

I was wondering if anyone could tell me how I could go about changing the individual background images on a dual-monitor setup via Terminal.

My network admin blocked the ability to change them through the System Preferences, and the Ctrl+Click >> 'Set As Desktop Background...' menu item only sets one of the monitors.

Thanks in advance, and let me know if I can be more specific about anything.

I'm sure your network admin had a good reason to block the ability to change them but perhaps you can find some hints here (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/431205/how-can-i-programatically-change-the-background-in-mac-os-x)
