Did something work before? Also, is the image that you want as your bg really located in .fluxbox or some other directory?

And are you root? You shouldn't be! You root surfer! Just kidding buddy. If you know the image is located in, say /home/images/chad.png then use that in your entry:
rootCommand: bsetbg -full /home/images/chad.png

And that's just an example, but shows what I am saying.

Cool

You know, I am pretty sure I have mine in init. Try it in init.

If it's in /root, and you aren't root, then move the image, or rather, copy the image to a location that your user can use it.

Place this line in your ~/.fluxbox/init file:
session.screen0.rootCommand: bsetbg -f /home/images/image.png

Replacing /home/images/image.png with the location of the file. Remember it has to be a place accessible by the user in question.

Cool

I doubt it. I am just partial to png's. Better quality for the compression.

I got that straight from the flux docs. It's what I used, and it worked first time up. Although if you are doing this as root, that might be your pull. Maybe root can't set bg's. Also, might be a permissions problem, that's what keeps coming back to me, unless of course you are root.

Cool
