[TIP?] Using feh to set wallpaper for basic desktops
« on: August 25, 2015, 06:40:08 AM »
Hi

This is an alternative to the wiki way
http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/wiki:wallpaper_desktop_background

Make a backup of .xsession somewhere, I use a folder called KEEP which tells my 6 brain cells its important!
 ;D

remove this line from .xsession
Quote
[ -x $HOME/.setbackground ] && $HOME/.setbackground

add this line to .xsession, at the bottom of file works for me
Quote
sh ~/.fehbg &

Create a file called .fehbg with contents like

Quote
#!/bin/sh
feh  --bg-fill '/home/tc/KEEP/wallpaper.jpg'

add feh to your "boot" list typically onboot.lst

feh and its dependencies may add a tiny bit more to your resources

reboot to test

good luck

Why use feh? Take a look in .setbackground, hsetroot supports a lot of placing/scaling options ;)
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

agreed this is a mistake by me, from reading about openbox allegedly using feh to set wallpaper.

I have used openbox autostart to set wallpaper using stuff from .xsession and it works



above image is work in progress for openbox on 64 bit.

its a link and as I failed to give a good tip,  please please delete entire thread.

thanks in advance

trivia, the only reason for opera icon not showing it because its not loaded   ;)
