I want to display an Image, command line, on my root window, on a certain place, scaled to a certain width and height. The application should stop after displaying it and the image should stay there on the root window.
I used xv, but I get into trouble. You can display an image on your root window, but when you do, it ignores your geometry and uses the rmode parameter which forces you into tiling or centering or.. but not what I want.
I need this to draw an initial background on the start of my program but then the program should exit so that my processs continues.
I work on a stripped version of red hat (due to lack of space) , I have xloadImage and xv on my system. the command is executed by a 'system()' call in the source.
