Description Russell Cloran 2003-06-17 03:33:22 UTC
WindowMaker includes a very (very) nice background setting programme, that works
incredibly well with my desktop, as a backend to bsetbg. I have not managed to
find any utilities simply for setting a background that work quite as well as
wmsetbg, but was getting very bleak having the whole of windowmaker installed
for no particular reason.

This ebuild has not been tested on anything except a few friends' x86 machines.
I have no way of testing it anywhere else, but I assume that it will work on
other arch's, as the windowmaker ebuild says that windowmaker does! I have
commented out the old KEYWORDS line, and added one that contains only ~x86 for
safety's sake.

Only downside is the need to download the whole WindowMaker tarball. Yay for
broadband :)

I'm afraid this won't be added. Installing a subset of the binaries that another ebuild installs is a little hacky. I'd prefer that people just install windowmaker and not use it.

Unless they split wsetbg from the main distriubtion.
