Wayland has the wl_output (and xdg-output) protocols which provide
some information about the different monitors connected and (to some
extent) the layout.

But neither Wayland nor X11 have the concept of virtual desktops.
Those concepts are purely at the window management level - a "desktop"
is just a virtual representation of which window to show or hide.

IOW, that depends on the Wayland compositor.
