Making the background stretch to fill your desktop in fluxbox


I know how to set the background in Fluxbox/Blackbox but how do you make it stretch to fill your entire desktop area?

I can't seem to find anywhere that tells you how.

Edit the root command in the style you have selected.

Mine now has:

rootCommand: feh --bg-scale /home/david/pics/wallpaper/lain.jpeg
