NAME

fbsetroot - a simple background utility used by the fluxbox(1) window manager, originally written for and by the original blackbox(1) window manager.

CONTENTS

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\(cqt 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
