NAME
       fbsetbg - Set a background wallpaper or pattern

SYNOPSIS
       fbsetbg [-uU wallpapersetter] [-fFcCtTaA] wallpaper

       fbsetbg [-uU wallpapersetter] -rR path

       fbsetbg -bB fbsetrootoptions...

       fbsetbg [-l|h|i|p]

DESCRIPTION
       fbsetbg(1) is a wrapper that tries to find a suitable
       background-setting app and then tries to	set the	wallpaper using	that
       app. You	don't have to configure	fbsetbg. It just uses the first	app it
       can find.

       Furthermore it supports remembering the last set	wallpaper so you don't
       have to edit the	style or init-file to change the wallpaper.

       It aims to provide clear	error messages in a window that	make debugging
       problems	easy.

OPTIONS
       -f file
	   Set fullscreen wallpaper.

       -c file
	   Set centered	wallpaper.

       -t file
	   Set tiled wallpaper.

       -a file
	   Set maximized wallpaper, preserving aspect (if your bgsetter
	   doesn't support this	option fbsetbg falls back to -f).

       -u wallpapersetter
	   Use specified wallpapersetter, use no argument to forget.

       -b fbsetrootoptions
	   Forward the options to fbsetroot(1).	These can be used to set a
	   solid, pattern, or gradient background texture.

       -r directory
	   Set random wallpaper	from a directory.

       -F, -C, -T, -A, -U, -B, -R
	   Same	as the lowercase option	but without remembering.

       -l
	   Set previous	wallpaper. Or, if the random feature was last used,
	   set another random wallpaper	from the same directory.

       -i
	   Display useful information about best wallpapersetter found.

       -p
	   Display some	useful tips.

       -h
	   Display a help message.

FILES
       ~/.fluxbox/lastwallpaper
	   In this file	the wallpaper you set will be stored, for the -l
	   option.

ENVIRONMENT
       wpsetters
	   Wallpapersetters to use. This can be	a space-delimited list of the
	   applications	to try,	or just	a single name.

       DISPLAY

EXAMPLES
       To use feh(1) as	wallpapersetter	and set	wallpapper.jpg from the
