Thank you very much for the replies.

I only use 1 monitor.
The scripts don't work.
I tried several scripts which I found on ubuntu-users and on other linux-forums. They don't work as they should.
Some are for MATE, some for Cinnamon  desktops and none does work properly in P10.

Therefore I am using LinuxMint Xfce in my daily work. There it is absolutely no problem to get different wallpapers on each workspace.
I can have them change the wallpaper in defined time spans. 

I understand that this cannot be done in Peppermint and other distros, so I let it rest.

Maybe there will be a solution in the future.

Although the problem cannot be solved, I will mark it as solved.

Please DO NOT mark it as (SOLVED) unless it actually is... if you are letting go of the need, then we request you mark it as (Abandoned) ... That way, if some future user comes with the same query, they won't waste their time. Or ... ... ... they might respond with a resolution they have found...

 ;)
