fbsetbg [name.extension]
some wallpapers are set with a -c (centered). But I can't see any.
The strange thing is that before I could do it (long ago since the last time I tried).

Thanks for the link comprookie2000 and thank you very much for your help.
I think that the problem is that now I don't have WindowMaker (that I've never used, but as I used to make a full installation I had it). Now I only have ImageMagick that does not support transparency

I use Esetroot, here is my ~/.fluxbox/startup
Code:
# fluxbox startup-script:
#
# Lines starting with a '#' are ignored.

# You can set your favourite wallpaper here if you don't want
# to do it from your style.
#
# bsetbg -f ~/pictures/wallpaper.png
#
# This sets a black background

#/usr/bin/Esetroot -scale /root/.fluxbox/backgrounds/cool.jpg
/usr/bin/Esetroot -scale /root/.fluxbox/backgrounds/background.png

# This shows the fluxbox-splash-screen
# fbsetbg -C /usr/share/fluxbox/splash.jpg

# Other examples. Check man xset for details.
#
# Turn off beeps:
# xset -b
#
# Increase the keyboard repeat-rate:
# xset r rate 195 35
#
# Your own fonts-dir:
# xset +fp /root/.font
#
# Your favourite mouse cursor:
# xsetroot -cursor_name right_ptr
#
# Change your keymap:
# xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap



# Applications you want to run with fluxbox.
# MAKE SURE THAT APPS THAT KEEP RUNNING HAVE AN ''&'' AT THE END.
#
# unclutter -idle 2 &
# wmnd &
wbar  --isize 48 --pos top --jumpf 0 --balfa 0 &

conky &

#mpg321 -o alsa /root/mp3/pilots/sourgirl.mp3 &
mpg321 -o alsa /root/sounds/011_login\ B.mp3 &
# And last but not least we start fluxbox.
# Because it is the last app you have to run it with ''exec'' before it.

exec /usr/bin/fluxbox
# or if you want to keep a log:
# exec /usr/bin/fluxbox -log ~/.fluxbox/log
If you use any gnome apps like nautilus and want to change the theme or icons make a file named .gtkrc-2.0 and add something like this to your home;
Code:
gtk-icon-theme-name = "Tango-OldPlainGray"
gtk-theme-name = "Clearlooks"
If you want a transparent aterm create the file .Xdefaults and add something like;
Code:
aterm*cursorColor: green
aterm*colorMode: true
aterm*borderwidth: 0
aterm*pointerColor: yellow
aterm*transparent: true
aterm*shading: 60
aterm*background: black
aterm*foreground: white
aterm*scrollBar: false
aterm*fading: 60
aterm*saveLines:4500
aterm*geometry: 100x25+20+5
aterm*loginShell: True
aterm*font: -*-terminus-medium-*-*-*-16-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1
What disro are you using? For debian or debian based (ubuntu) I think the file name is .Xresources

Everything was fixed by installing Window Maker, Thank you very much.
I switched to gkrellm again because conky has trouble with the shadows in the windows. (when it's daemonized).
so here is a ss for you to see how it went =).
I use Slackare 11 with xterm.
