Fluxbox wallpaper setting

So I did a netinstall and got fluxbox as my wm and now i can't set a wallpaper (which is a picture) as the desktop background.
I try the 'fbsetbg' it gives me a window with an error, saying no application was found.
So i'm wondering do i need to download a certain app, or should fluxbox come with one?

Which is the best app to get via apt-get install?

I like Esetroot which comes bundled with eterm;
apt-get install eterm
then not as root;
Esetroot -center or -scale /path/to/picture.png
or fbsetbg will use Esetroot

does eterm have any advantages over aterm (or vice versa)?
