LXer: Adding a Background Image To a Basic Window Manager

Published at LXer:

Running a basic, truly minimal window manager can save significant CPU cycles and memory. This becomes important if you’re running old, limited hardware or when designing a desktop environment for an embedded Linux device. Even the oldest, most primitive window managers (think TWM or MWM) can support a pretty desktop background image. The ability is almost as old as X itself.
