NAME
       bsetroot	- blackbox utility to change root window appearance

SYNOPSIS
       bsetroot	-help
       bsetroot	[ -display display ] -solid color
       bsetroot	[ -display display ] -mod x y -fg color	-bg color
       bsetroot	[ -display display ] -gradient texture -from color -to color

DESCRIPTION
       Bsetroot	 is a utility that can control the appearance of the root win-
       dow 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 dif-
       ferent colors.

       Bsetroot	resembles xsetroot(1) in this functionality  but  it  supports
       multiple	 screen	displays, and gradient textures	the same way as	Black-
       box does.  It doesn't handle cursors etc.   Bsetroot  is	 part  of  the
       Blackbox	package.

OPTIONS
       Bsetroot	operates in three ways,	you must choose	one of the first 3 op-
       tions:

       -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.   For
	      possible texture strings,	please refer to	blackbox(1).  You must
	      also specify both	a -from	and a -to color.

       -display	display
	      Tells Bsetroot to	connect	to the specified display.
