    XV background


    Hi There,

    I added the following line to my .xinitrc script

    xv -root -quit /path/to/image.jpg

    When I started blackbox. The picture appeared briefly and it returned to the solid background that it was set to before. Does this happen because the settings in .blackboxrc or in the styles overwrite it?

    Cheers

    Maybe, have you taken a look in the .blackboxrc /style file?

    Eventhought I'm not familiar with xv, but the -quit switch, what happens if you remove that at amp-off (postfix an &) the command?
