    You don't need kde or gnome for such a simple task.

    There are many programs that can do it for you. I use feh, which is imlib based. There's also esetroot and many others.

    Code:
    feh --bg-scale <picture>
    Put it into your .xinitrc or whatever script you use to initialize X.

    Also, I couldn't avoid to notice that you are operating as root. Not a good idea overall if you plan on having internet connection on this machine.
