bsetroot - blackbox utility to change root window appearance


bsetroot -help
bsetroot [ -display display ] -solid color
bsetroot [ -display display ] -mod x y -fg color -bg color
bsetroot [ -display display ] -gradient texture -from color -to color


Bsetroot is a utility that can control the appearance of the root window in three ways:
Either give it a solid color, or write a two color modula pattern to it, or render a
gradient texture, based on two different colors.

Bsetroot resembles xsetroot(1) in this functionality but it supports multiple screen
displays, and gradient textures the same way as Blackbox does. It doesn't handle cursors
etc. Bsetroot is part of the Blackbox package.


Bsetroot operates in three ways, you must choose one of the first 3 options:

-solid color
Sets the root window to specified color.

-mod x y
Creates a modula pattern. You must specify -bg and -fg colors.

-gradient texturestring
Renders the specified texture string to the root window. For possible texture
strings, please refer to blackbox(1). You must also specify both a -from and a -to

-display display
Tells Bsetroot to connect to the specified display.

-bg, -background color
Background color. Needed for -mod patterns.

-fg, -foreground color
Foreground color. Needed for -mod patterns.

-from color
Start color for rendering textures. Needed for -gradient operation mode.

-to color
Ending color for rendering textures. Needed for -gradient operation mode.

-help Prints version info and short help text.
