NAME

fbsetbg - Set a background wallpaper or pattern

CONTENTS

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\(cqt have to configure fbsetbg. It just uses the first app it can find.

Furthermore it supports remembering the last set wallpaper so you don\(cqt 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\(cqt 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.

FILES

~/.fluxbox/lastwallpaper

ENVIRONMENT
