Unhappy IceWM Backround


Hi ppl I have been trying to get my wallpapers to work in IceWM with no luck I have looked around at www.icewm.org and found out I had to edit my prefrences so I did and this is what it looks like

#Desktop background image
#DesktopBackgroundImage="/home/xquizit/tmp/themes/wallpaper/lovehina_27_1024.jpg"

I also installed the file that was needed so it can read .jpg and other file formats. I am also using Mandrake 9.1.

TIA

Try something else like Esetroot in your xinitrc. I don't use Ice, but that's how I'd go about trying

Cool

Maybe you could "urpmi icepref" if you don't mind getting another package to set up IceWM. It works really nicely for me, setting up my prefs only took about 30 seconds or so.

Sometimes we all miss the small things Nice one!
Next step we all would have been like "Let's write you a program, enhance it with something even more complex and see how that goes". Then you come in and, "Uh, remove the comment" Nice one.

Cool

Heheh I do what I can as a relative newbie myself
However I had just been doing some work with IceWM and so I was in that mindset.
