FBSETROOT(1)			Fluxbox	Manual			  FBSETROOT(1)

NAME
       fbsetroot - a simple background utility used by the fluxbox(1) window
       manager,	originally written for and by the original blackbox(1) window
       manager.

SYNOPSIS
       fbsetroot [-display display] -solid color

       fbsetroot [-display display] -mod x y -fg color -bg color

       fbsetroot [-display display] -gradient texture -from color -to color

       fbsetroot -help

DESCRIPTION
       fbsetroot(1) is a utility that can control the appearance of the	root
       window 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
       different colors.

       fbsetroot resembles xsetroot(1) in this functionality but it supports
       multiple-screen displays, and gradient textures the same	way as
       blackbox	or fluxbox does. It doesn't handle cursors etc.	fbsetroot was
       originally part of the Blackbox package and was carried over with the
       code that became	Fluxbox. It was	called bsetroot	back in	those days.

       If any errors are encountered, fbsetroot	will use either	gxmessage(1)
       or xmessage(1) to inform	the user of errors.

OPTIONS
       fbsetroot operates in three ways, you must choose one of	the first 3
       options:

       -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.

	   texturestring may be	one of:
	       Horizontal / Vertical / Diagonal	/ Crossdiagonal	/ Pipecross /
	       Elliptic	/ Rectangle / Pyramid

	       Select one of these texture types, they only apply when
	       -gradient is specified. You must	also specify both a -from and
	       a -to color.

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

       -bg, -background	color
	   Background color. Needed for	-mod patterns.

       -fg, -foreground	color
	   Foreground color. Needed for	-mod patterns.

       -from color
	   Start color for rendering textures. Needed for -gradient patterns.

       -to color
	   Ending color	for rendering textures.	Needed for -gradient patterns.

       -help
	   Prints version info and short help text.
