fluxbox themes


Hey there,

I'm trying to use a fluxbox theme, but it doesn't display the background file even though the file location seems to be right. According to a website I was on, it appears that it may be trying to use a program I don't have in order to set the background image. I have Fedora Core 3. What types of programs might I change the "style" file to use so that it will use the background I want?

Thanks!

I don't appear to have either of those programs. Or is it just the command I type in the style program?

I checked to see if I have them by
cat xsri

'cat xsri' will try to output a file called 'xsri' in your current directory.

Try just typing 'xsri' (your background should turn blue).

fbsetbg -f worked.

There wasn't an f before the bsetbg, so it was probably a blackbox theme ported to fluxbox and they didn't change it correctly.
