I have six virtual desktops and want to change a desktop wallpaper for all of them at once. There is no such option when using System Preferences, so I have to change a wallpaper only for one desktop and repeat this six times.

Is there any way for process automation?

Set the wallpaper for Desktop 1, delete all other desktops, then recreate them. New desktops created always share Desktop 1’s wallpaper.
