    Why am I getting this xmessage???

    Every time I startup Fluxbox I get this "xmessage" which states:
    [*]fbsetbg: No previous wallpaper recorded for display :0
    I don't know why this keeps coming up, but my wallpaper is just fine and then I click ok and it's as if nothing ever happened, so what I want to know is how do I keep this "xmessage" from showing up???

    Check in your ~/.fluxbox/init file for a command 'fbsetbg -l'. It seems to me that you're telling it to use the last wallpaper used, but it has no recorded last wallpaper.

    If you want a wallpaper, you can use 'fbsetbg -f <filename>', or if you want none, just remove this line altogether.

    Alternatively, you can keep it as 'fbsetbg -l', and then run 'fbsetbg -f <filename>' from within Fluxbox; that wallpaper will be recorded as the last wallpaper.
