SYNOPSIS

bsetroot -help
bsetroot [ -display display ] -solid color
bsetroot [ -display display ] -mod x y -fg color -bg color
bsetroot [ -display display ] -gradient texture -from color -to color

DESCRIPTION

Bsetroot 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.

Bsetroot resembles xsetroot(1) in this functionality but it supports multiple screen displays, and gradient textures the same way as Blackbox does. It doesn’t handle cursors etc. Bsetroot is part of the Blackbox package.

OPTIONS

Bsetroot 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. For possible texture strings, please refer to blackbox(1). You must also specify both a -from and a -to color.
-display display
  Tells Bsetroot 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 operation mode.
-to color
  Ending color for rendering textures. Needed for -gradient operation mode.
-help Prints version info and short help text.
