fluxbox wallpaper


This is probably a really stupid question but I just can't figure it out.

I've been using fluxbox stable version for a while with no problems.

Now I have the development version, I cant set a wallpaper. If for example I have a wallpaper in ~/.fluxbox/backgrounds then I would type:

fbsetbg -a ~/.fluxbox/backgrounds/wallpaper.jpg

But it says it can't load it. I am sure the path is correct and I have all the necessary permissions, it just wont load.

I've tried all the other options too but the same thing.

Am I doing something wrong, or does it just hate me?

Can you post up the actual error message? Where are you typing this at? Do you have fbsetbg installed?



Cool

I found the development version to be very buggy. A lot of things did not work for me.
