I've had this problem for quite and while and it's driving me nuts...
When I change to a style in Fluxbox the style doesn't set the background, even though the style is correct, this happens for every single style, including the default ones. The style will set the window decorations and the taskbar but not the background.
This problem is a configuration issue because when I start fluxbox in a fresh user account and select the same styles, they all set the background image correctly every time - there is noting wrong with the styles themselves. When logged in as my regular user I can set the backgound myself using fbsetbg. Fbsetbg -i tells me I am using Esetroot:
$ fbsetbg -i
Esetroot is a nice wallpapersetter. You won't have any problems
rubbing salt in the wound? The thing is, fbsetbg does work, at least if I type it into an xterm myself, and the styles use the rootcommand fbsetbg /path/to/jpeg to set the wallpaper so I don't understand why this doesn't work.
All suggestions welcome!
