desktop background

So today, the facilities people came in and stole my Sunblade 100, but they replaced it with a Dell Optiplex GX620. Now I have more desk space thanks to the brand new 20 inch dell flat panel!

Only one dilemma: I've been forced to switch window managers from tvtwm to vtwm (not a big diff), and xsetroot doesn't work anymore. This means I have to use xsetbg, which loads a background image.

Thus my dilemma! I don't know of any good background images, does anyone have a suggestion? I need it to be dark in tones, and 1600x1200.

Digital Blasphemy is my favorite place.

I like Haiku

The manpage for vtwm claims xsetroot should work?

Tell that to the install of VTWM here in IUCS. I get a black and white pixel snow pattern, it's REALLY hard on the eyes.

What? You want me to send you an interior decorator to match the plastic with the background?

Sid Stamm said...

maybe you misunderstand, not hard on the eyes like Quazimodo, but like bright lights.
