fbsetroot [-display display] -solid color
fbsetroot [-display display] -mod x y -fg color -bg color
fbsetroot [-display display] -gradient texture -from color -to color
fbsetroot(1) 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.
fbsetroot resembles xsetroot(1) in this functionality but it supports multiple-screen displays, and gradient textures the same way as blackbox or fluxbox does. It doesn’t handle cursors etc. fbsetroot was originally part of the Blackbox package and was carried over with the code that became Fluxbox. It was called bsetroot back in those days.
fbsetroot operates in three ways, you must choose one of the first 3 options:
-mod x y
texturestring may be one of:
Horizontal / Vertical / Diagonal / Crossdiagonal / Pipecross / Elliptic / Rectangle / Pyramid
Select one of these texture types, they only apply when -gradient is specified. You must also specify both a -from and a -to color.
-bg, -background color
-fg, -foreground color
