Using XPM to display backing image?

Using XPM to display backing image?

Post by Patrick Killi » Sat, 22 Jul 1995 04:00:00

Hello all,

Does anyone know how to use XPM to display xpm files as the
background for one's Linux desktop?  I have tried piping it
it to xsetroot and that did not work.  People have suggested
a program called 'xsetbg' or 'xpmroot', but I do not have them.

I am currently running Linux with the OpenLook (olvwm) windows

Thanks in advance,

Patrick Killion


1. Problems with displaying XPM images



Please ignore my message, I figured everything out: I
didn't need any Pixmap variables since I am doing it
directly to XImage and I made a typo in the second
argument to XPutImage: it should have been a window

Thanks again,
