Can't set a wallpaper in Fluxbox 0.98


I've just got FluxBox 0.98 installed on Fedora Core 1 but the line I used to use on 0.1.14 doesn't appear to set the wallpaper anymore. This is what I have in ~/.fluxbox/init:

session.screen0.rootCommand: bsetbg -f ~/Images/1280x1024/Celica.jpg

Anyone run into this before?

well first run the bsetbg manually from the command line to see if it works, and secondly make sure that exact location of the picture is still in tact ...

I think that's part of blackbox
There are other apps that will do the same thing...Esetroot, bsetroot, but fbsetbg is probably the most versatile, since it tries to use whatever utility you have installed.
You can find it and other flux apps at http://fluxbox.sourceforge.net/

actually is fbsetgb
just a thought, after using and testing fbsetbg /whatever/image/you/want.png,edit this line within your /.fluxbox/init file:
session.screen0.rootCommand: fbsetbg -l
thus, it will remember the last wallpaper you use
i think is an easy way to do it, hope it'll work for you

cheers

possibly removing "session.screen0." from that line may help....really not sure why it would be there in the first place for a standard local X session.
