ION window manager

Hey, I am looking into using the ion3 window manager, and I have had some success. Its not bad once you get used to it. It now feels awkward having to use my mouse to browse =). But anywho does anyone know a good root background changer that will work with ion3? All the official website has is a glib remark about how its not his job to change the background. It would, however, be nice to give a hint. Anyway, fbsetroot, xsetroot, and feh don't work, so I am sort of stumped on this. Thanks

You can also just pick an existing theme that is transparent. look_awsome.lua is one of them. This lets you see the background image, which can be set with feh or whatever.
