fluxbox: bsetbg: no suitable image applications

I've done some searching on other forums, and I have discovered that I am missing the file . ~/.fluxbox/bsetbg. I'm wondering why bsetbg can't create the file... When I check vc1, it has this:

~/.fluxbox/bsetbg was not found: creating...
bsetbg: checking for display... not found
bsetbg: checking for Esetroot... not found
bsetbg: checking for wmsetbg... not found
etc.

I also checked ~/.fluxbox/init and added bsetbg to line 74 (rootCommand: )

Strange...

Re: fluxbox: bsetbg: no suitable image applications

Are you using the devel version?  In that case, it's been changed to
fbsetbg.  (It's in their devel faq, but both Dusty and I missed it--I forget which one of us found it and posted it later, I just remember we both mentioned it.).


Heh, didn't read your post thoroughly enough, I missed the point.  I'll leave the above paragraph in, as it will probably come up sooner or later on the forums.

As for the other issue--fluxbox requires some sort of image program to display the image--if you have eterm, it can use esetroot, if you have windowmaker it can use wmsetbg. 

You can also install something else to do it, such as ImageMagik, qiv or xli.  I have a page on fluxbox at
http://home.nyc.rr.com/computertaijutsu/fluxbox.html 
that covers this.

Thanks very much for the kind words.  Glad it was  helpful.

As I point out there, Gentoo and Arch are the only ones that I know of that incorporate Mr. Kita's patch.
