awsetbg [-fctaFCTA wallpaper] [-uU wallpapersetter] [-m #] [-bB fbsetrootoptions ...] [-rR path] [-l] DESCRIPTION
awsetbg is a wrapper that tries to find a suitable background setting application and then tries to set the wallpaper using that application. You do not have to configure awsetbg, since it just uses the first application it finds. Furthermore, it remembers the last wallpaper set, so you do not have to edit anything to change the wallpaper. OPTIONS
-f file Set fullscreen wallpaper. -c file Set centered wallpaper. -t file Set tiled wallpaper. -a file Set maximized wallpaper, preserving the aspect ratio. If the application chosen does not support this option, fullscreen is used as fall back. -u wallpapersetter Use the specified wallpaper setter tool. -r directory Set a random wallpaper from this directory. -F, -C, -T, -A, -U, -R Same as the lowercase options, but without remembering. -l Set the previous wallpaper. If the random feature was the last used, it will set another random wallpaper from this same directory. -i Display useful information about the best application to set the wallpaper found. -m # Use montage to create a big image (image should fit screen size). Requires montage(1). # is the number of screens (columns in montage). -p Display useful tips. -h Display help message. FILES

fbsetbg - Set a background wallpaper or pattern SYNOPSIS
fbsetbg [-uU wallpapersetter] [-fFcCtTaA] wallpaper fbsetbg [-uU wallpapersetter] -rR path fbsetbg -bB fbsetrootoptions... fbsetbg [-l|h|i|p] DESCRIPTION
fbsetbg(1) is a wrapper that tries to find a suitable background-setting app and then tries to set the wallpaper using that app. You don't have to configure fbsetbg. It just uses the first app it can find. Furthermore it supports remembering the last set wallpaper so you don't have to edit the style or init-file to change the wallpaper. It aims to provide clear error messages in a window that make debugging problems easy. OPTIONS
-f file Set fullscreen wallpaper. -c file Set centered wallpaper. -t file Set tiled wallpaper. -a file Set maximized wallpaper, preserving aspect (if your bgsetter doesn't support this option fbsetbg falls back to -f). -u wallpapersetter Use specified wallpapersetter, use no argument to forget. -b fbsetrootoptions Forward the options to fbsetroot(1). These can be used to set a solid, pattern, or gradient background texture. -r directory Set random wallpaper from a directory. -F, -C, -T, -A, -U, -B, -R Same as the lowercase option but without remembering. -l Set previous wallpaper. Or, if the random feature was last used, set another random wallpaper from the same directory. -i Display useful information about best wallpapersetter found. -p Display some useful tips. -h Display a help message. FILES
~/.fluxbox/lastwallpaper In this file the wallpaper you set will be stored, for the -l option. ENVIRONMENT
