RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for xscreensaver-getimage-file (redhat section 1)

XScreenSaver(1) 		     General Commands Manual			  XScreenSaver(1)

NAME
       xscreensaver-getimage-file - put a randomly-selected image on the root window

SYNOPSIS
       xscreensaver-getimage-file [-display host:display.screen] [--verbose] [--name] directory

DESCRIPTION
       The xscreensaver-getimage-file program is a helper program for the xscreensaver hacks that
       manipulate images.  Specifically, it is invoked	by  xscreensaver-getimage(1)  as  needed.
       This is not a user-level command.

       This  program  selects a random image from disk, and loads it on the root window.  It does
       this by figuring out which image-loading programs are installed on the system, and  invok-
       ing the first one it finds.

OPTIONS
       xscreensaver-getimage-file accepts the following options:

       --verbose
	   Print diagnostics.

       --name
	   Don't load an image: instead just print the file name to stdout.

       directory
	   The	directory  to search.	The directory will be searched recursively, and all files
	   in it are assumed to be images.
