HowTo set the wallpaper in wmii

Posted on October 21, 2006 in Linux

This took me a little bit, so i write it down.

In ~/.wmii-3.5/wmiirc, replace the following line:

xsetroot -solid '#0b1014' with a command to set the background image, such as

eval cat $HOME/.fehbg & (requires feh)

Now i don't have to bother anymore with the configfile,

feh --bg-center ~/path/to/image sets the backgroundimage

and after a reboot the last shown picture is set.
