a script to run after login to change wallpapers on 3 monitor setup

So I have a triple monitor set up and for some reason the wallpapers I set on each of the displays won't stay after reboot. Now I am looking for a way to set the wallpapers to a specific picture for each monitor. It shouldn't matter whether they're the same picture or 3 three different ones. I wan't the script to set the wallpaper individually for each monitor: (dislaimer: I don't have any idea how to write a script. the following is just how I imagine it to be.)

 

for same picture

monitor 1 -> picture1.jpg

monitor 2 -> picture1.jpg

monitor 3 -> picture1.jpg

 

I do not want the script to be:

monitor 1, 2, 3 -> picture1.jpg

 

or else I wouldn't be able to do this:

monitor 1 -> picture1.jpg

monitor 2 -> picture2.jpg

monitor 3 -> picture3.jpg

 

 

As I mentioned before, I don't know how to write a script. I googled for some and found some, fiddled around with them but I couldn't get them to work.

 

Any help would be appreciated. 

 

Thanks a lot

I think your issue comes from not having the wallpapers on your boot partition. Move the wallpapers somewhere in your user folder, e.g. ~/Pictures
