background


hi,

Finally i have been using blfs 6.0(customed), first impression is everything is more softer than debian sid.

btw, why my background is so naked? it just X11 background, and plus, there's small error else.

PS: never mind, it worked out, vi /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc

Yea, that works. There also is KDE but I like blackbox & fluxbox.
(I don't mind a "naked background" as long as it's fast 'taking little resources.')
