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
wpsetters Wallpapersetters to use. This can be a space-delimited list of the applications to try, or just a single name. DISPLAY The display you want to set the wallpaper on. EXAMPLES
To use feh(1) as wallpapersetter and set wallpapper.jpg from the current directory as wallpaper. $ wpsetters=feh fbsetbg wallpaper.jpg Recall the last set wallpaper on display :0.0 with the stored options. $ DISPLAY=:0.0 fbsetbg -l BUGS
