With  -pixmap parameter I can put a background image under rxvt. But, if the image is shorter than the area available, the image is deformed.
The question is: with geometry parameter it is possible tile the xpm file ? What is the exact meaning of the geometry option? How can I put a tiled image in the rxvt background ?

Thanks in advance,

You can't tile an image in an rxvt.  The pixmap support right
now is only advanced enough to scale the pixmap on the fly to
fit the rxvt window.  I'm not sure what the geometry option
is in that context - I would have thought it only applied to
the size of rxvt itself.

Suggestion:  use xv to tile your favorite pixmaps as the root
window, then cut out a nice-sized chunk and use it for your
rxvt background.  Thats what I did.
