bgs - back ground setter ======================== bgs is an extremely fast and small background setter for X. Requirements ------------ In order to build bgs you need the Xlib and Imlib2 header files. Installation ------------ Edit config.mk to match your local setup (bgs is installed into the /usr/local namespace by default). Afterwards enter the following command to build and install bgs (if necessary as root): make clean install Running bgs ----------- Add the following line to your .xinitrc to start bgs using startx: bgs <image> & In order to connect bgs to a specific display, make sure that the DISPLAY environment variable is set correctly, e.g.: DISPLAY=foo.bar:1 bgs <image> & (This will start bgs on display :1 of the host foo.bar.) In order to have a different image on each monitor you can specify multiple images (one per monitor), e.g.: DISPLAY=foo.bar:1 bgs <image1> <image2> & (This will display image1 on monitor 1 and image2 on monitor 2.)
