CentOS 7.0 - man page for xrefresh (centos section 1)

XREFRESH(1)									      XREFRESH(1)

NAME
       xrefresh - refresh all or part of an X screen

SYNOPSIS
       xrefresh [-option ...]

DESCRIPTION
       Xrefresh  is  a	simple	X program that causes all or part of your screen to be repainted.
       This is useful when system messages have messed up your screen.	Xrefresh maps a window on
       top  of	the  desired  area  of the screen and then immediately unmaps it, causing refresh
       events to be sent to all applications.  By default, a window with no background	is  used,
       causing	all  applications  to  repaint ``smoothly.''  However, the various options can be
       used to indicate that a solid background (of any color)	or  the  root  window  background
       should be used instead.

ARGUMENTS
       -white	 Use  a  white	background.   The  screen just appears to flash quickly, and then
		 repaint.

       -black	 Use a black background (in effect, turning off all of the electron guns  to  the
		 tube).  This can be somewhat disorienting as everything goes black for a moment.

       -solid color
		 Use a solid background of the specified color.  Try green.

       -root	 Use the root window background.

       -none	 This is the default.  All of the windows simply repaint.

       -geometry WxH+X+Y
		 Specifies the portion of the screen to be repainted; see X(7).

       -display display
		 This	argument   allows  you	to  specify the server and screen to refresh; see
		 X(7).

X DEFAULTS
       The xrefresh program uses the routine XGetDefault(3) to read  defaults,	so  its  resource
       names are all capitalized.

       Black, White, Solid, None, Root
	       Determines what sort of window background to use.

       Geometry
	       Determines the area to refresh.	Not very useful.

ENVIRONMENT
       DISPLAY - To get default host and display number.

SEE ALSO
       X(7)

BUGS
       It should have just one default type for the background.
