Raspberry Pi uses FEH Desktop Backgrounds
by Lewis Loflin
FEH is a basic low-resource picture viewer and wallpaper program for Linux-based systems. This is for both Openbox, Fluxbox, and JWM.
Raspberry doesn't come with FEH so download/install feh and while we are at it scrot for screen shots.
~ $ sudo apt-get install feh scrot
Still in the terminal, open an image with feh. Must include full path name to wallpaper directory.
~ $ feh /usr/share/images/whatever_image.jpg
Use left/right arrows to select image, right-click on the image then file then background then select set centered, etc. This generates a file .fehbg in your home directory that will be used when logging in to set the wallpaper.
Other scaling options include:
To restore the background on the next session, add the following to your startup file (e.g. ~/.xinitrc, or ~/.config/openbox/autostart, etc.):
$ sh ~/.fehbg &
For openbox this must be placed in the autostart file.
Add the following:
# start up for openbox # don't use with nitrogen # wall paper sh ~/.fehbg &
Save and close and restart. These same selections don't need to be called from .xinitrc just for openbox-session.
To change the background image, edit the file ~/.fehbg which gets created after running the command feh --bg-scale /path/to/image.file mentioned above.
The image will be reduced to a smaller size the up/down arrows will increase/decrease the image within the fixed window.
