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
fbsetbg(1) is not foolproof. AUTHORS

FBSETROOT(1)							  Fluxbox Manual						      FBSETROOT(1)

fbsetroot - a simple background utility used by the fluxbox(1) window manager, originally written for and by the original blackbox(1) window manager. SYNOPSIS
fbsetroot [-display display] -solid color fbsetroot [-display display] -mod x y -fg color -bg color fbsetroot [-display display] -gradient texture -from color -to color fbsetroot -help DESCRIPTION
fbsetroot(1) is a utility that can control the appearance of the root window in three ways: Either give it a solid color, or write a two color modula pattern to it, or render a gradient texture, based on two different colors. fbsetroot resembles xsetroot(1) in this functionality but it supports multiple-screen displays, and gradient textures the same way as blackbox or fluxbox does. It doesn't handle cursors etc. fbsetroot was originally part of the Blackbox package and was carried over with the code that became Fluxbox. It was called bsetroot back in those days. If any errors are encountered, fbsetroot will use either gxmessage(1) or xmessage(1) to inform the user of errors. OPTIONS
fbsetroot operates in three ways, you must choose one of the first 3 options: -solid color Sets the root window to specified color. -mod x y Creates a modula pattern. You must specify -bg and -fg colors. -gradient texturestring Renders the specified texture string to the root window. texturestring may be one of: Horizontal / Vertical / Diagonal / Crossdiagonal / Pipecross / Elliptic / Rectangle / Pyramid Select one of these texture types, they only apply when -gradient is specified. You must also specify both a -from and a -to color. -display display Tells fbsetroot to connect to the specified display. -bg, -background color Background color. Needed for -mod patterns. -fg, -foreground color Foreground color. Needed for -mod patterns. -from color Start color for rendering textures. Needed for -gradient patterns. -to color Ending color for rendering textures. Needed for -gradient patterns. -help Prints version info and short help text. AUTHORS
