Two questions about pekwm


Can someone help me with the command for setting .jpg .png background ?

I have looked around but havn't find a guide for setting the image .

I am a noob (not complete) on pekwm can some one inform me about things to do in pekwm or at leaste give me a guide or something.

I have read a bit of the guide on pekwms site.

Sorry about my English.

well the documentation on the site tells you how to do it, but anyway, use a program like feh, and add the appropiate command in the pekwm start file to execute feh

# emerge feh
$ nano ~/.pekwm/
$ chmod +x start
$ nano -w ~/.pekwm/start
then add a line like this at the bottom

feh --bg-center /home/joe/path/to/wallpaper.jpg
