"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Go to the section called "InitFunction" (this is called when
fvwm is started for the first time); here you have to add a
line such as:

Exec "I" xsetbg /home/juanc/pics/talence.gif

The total section might look like this:

Function "InitFunction"
      Module      "I"      FvwmBanner
      Exec      "I"      xsetbg /home/juanc/pics/talence.gif
      Module      "I"      GoodStuff
      # some more stuff....
EndFunction

If you don't have xsetbg or you like to use something else,
use that instead. What's important here is that you know how
to execute this kind of program when fvwm is starting up.

Have fun,
