sWM - version 1.3.3, 27-dec-2001

What is swmbg

swmbg is a really small utility to load a xpm-image into the root window. If the pixmap is smaller than the screen resolution, it will be repeated.

Reqirements

Hardware

Same as for swm.

Software

You need at least X11 and the xpm-library correctly installed.

Building

There will be no autoconf compatible "configure" script. You cannot configure swmbg, just type make to build it. If compilation fails, it's a good idea to edit the Makefile like you did it for swm.

Usage

There is nothing special about swmbg. Just start it with a correct xpm-image. swmbg will not dither nor do color adjustments, just load the image into the background and quit.

Take you favourite background image, transform it to your X-server's resolution and color depth and save it as an xpm under for example: "/usr/share/swm/background.xpm" so it can be displayed. swmbg does not support other file formats and does not scale or transform the picture.

I've put a small example pixmap in this distribution - don't take it too serious. :-)

Bugs

If you find any please send me a mail.

Uninstallation

You can easyly remove swm by typing "make uninstall" in the sources directory.
