fbsetbg and feh


hi, is there a way to have fbsetbg set a wallpaper with 'feh', with these options? 'feh --full-screen --auto-zoom'

i want to achieve the same result as the fbsetbg '-a' option(maximise but keep aspect ratio), however there is no '-a' option in 'feh' so it defaults to full screen which stretches the wallpaper and doesnt look right. any help with this is appreciated, ive been getting rather confused with it over the past couple of days

under montage mode, there's a stretch option that preserves the aspect ratio of the image.
