background image in fluxbox

I don't found "xv" to set my background image in fluxbox like this: (init file in ~/.fluxbox/init)

rootCommand: xv -root -rmode 5 -quit ~/.fluxbox/backgrounds/imagem.jpg

xsetroot only work with bmp.

Try uppercase, Eterm. not eterm or ETERM, but Eterm.

The Eterm wallpaper settter is called Esetroot.

Re: background image in fluxbox

The fluxbox command is fbsetbg  in fluxbox 0.9.x and bsetbg in 0.1.14.

It will look for xv, qiv, Eterm, etc. 

If you have the xv program, rather than use the xv command just use fbsetbg (or bsetbg, depending upon your version) and it should set it for you--if you want it tiled use fbsetbg -t
