hey i've been playing around with fluxbox for a lil while now basically got the hang of it. but i'm still havng trouble changing my backgrounds images, i dled some themes right and did the following

tar-zxvf theme name, then i copied the untar'd files to the usr/local/share/fluxbox/styles dir.after this i was able to select them from the system styles list. but when the themes changed the backgrounds didn't, i opened up the theme files in vi and placed the path of the wall paper to the rootcommand

like so:

rootCommand: bsetbg/usr/local/share/fluxbox/styles/backgrounds/love-hina.jpg

but still i am fustrated by failure, could someone pleasetell me a way that i can change my bg images easier.
