a wallpaper setter utility is available the antiX ControlCentre UI. Instead of hunting for it, can just launch it from commandline
/usr/local/bin/wallpaper.py

For "space-*" sessions where spacefm is managing the desktop, you can choose a wallpaper image via the spacefm "preferences" gui

Space-sessions is the way to go.. The journey now continues
Was using antiX Wallpaper but their was little control over the wallpapers.

you can also edit the start-up script in fluxbox ;)

Code: Select all

...
# fluxbox startup-script:
#
# Lines starting with a '#' are ignored.
# f=fullscreen
# c=centered
# t=titled (fliesen)
# a=wie f jedoch unter Beibehaltung der Proportionen (as f but while maintaining the proportions)
