AfterStep and background image

Post by Chuck Ma » Sun, 30 Nov 1997 04:00:00


I just installed AfterStep, and I am trying to figure out how to display
a background image.  The RMBB menu has a choice for background, and for
images.  But when I select one, nothing happens.  Do I need to install
another package?  Thanks for any help,

Yes you need the program called XV for X-Windows to be able to view those
backgrounds in the Afterstep menu..and in general once you get that
program..you can do something like "xv -root -quit -rmode 0 <filename>" to
put a background up..Regards

1. Icon backgrounds in AfterStep 1.4

Hi everyone,
Does anyone know how to change the background for icons (the icons which
appear when you iconify a window) in AfterStep 1.4.  By default, they have
the same background as the default Wharf background, but when I change the
wharf, the icons stay dark grey.

Any help is appreciated,
Peter
