background and settings for wmaker


-> Using current wmaker for testing

I am trying to make it so that I will PERMANANTLY change my background, not just for that session. I was also wondering where the wmaker profile is for root and and user accounts, and how I might be able to chang ethis so that all the accounts on my comptuer will ahve the same settings and background and stuff. Thanks!

hi there,
the main config directory for WMaker is $HOME/GNUstep
take a look and you will find interesting things there.
an important file is
Code:
 ~/GNUstep/Defaults/Windowmaker

hi there,
did you take a close look at the file that i pointed?
there is a line called...
Code:
WorkspaceBack = (tpixmap, Circuits.jpg, black);
this set your background... change it with your editor and that is it...
