desktop background 1200x800


Hi!

How can I stretch my desktop wallpaper to fit my 1200x800 screen resolution?

I'm using fluxbox by the way (which rocks!), but the fbsetbg command doesn't seem to help in this matter.

Cheers.

Ok I stretched the image but it didn't seem to help. Must have something to do with how fbsetbg displays the image.

I'll try eterm instead.

Oh yes... I remember trying eterm before.
There were a bunch of failed dependencies when I tried to install it.

Guess I have some work to do.
