I went into the terminal and typed that in, there was no response. I am quite new to linux. Is there any way I can get a little more explaination please?

First off -- I am using R5B7. Second - There is no handy dandy utility with bunch of new
backgrounds to choose from. and Lastly -- I can't even see my background because of
the frontend. That said --

put the new image you want in ~mythtv
then edit the file ~mythtv/.fluxbox/init
change the line:

session.screen0.rootCommand: fbsetbg -f /usr/local/lib/knoppmyth.png

to

session.screen0.rootCommand: fbsetbg -f ~mythtv/newbackground.png

then do a Ctl-Alt-Backspace

where newbackground.png is whatever your new backgound is that you copied to ~mythtv
running "fbsetbg -f ~mythtv/newbackground.png" from the command line will also change
it until the next system restart.

This is off-topic, but does anybody know who those two people shaking hands are on Tux's television? The guy on the left kinda looks like Darius Rucker from Hootie and the Blowfish.

The gentlemen in question are your hosts Cecil & Dale.

I have a jet black image that I use. I have it on one of my webservers, so I can pull it down with just this:

#as root - fix the wallpaper:
cd /usr/local/lib
rm knoppmyth.png
wget http://www.thornsoft.net/images/knoppmyth.png

I thought that was Darius Rucker!

That's not to be taken as an insult. Both Darius Rucker and Edwin McCain rock! They are each severe cases of "the radio stations only play the lame tracks."

In the New LinHES 6.03 the file
Code:
/home/mythtv/.fluxbox/wallpaper.png

Just in case anyone is wondering. I just replace the file for simplicity's sake.

It's funny that this question came about, as my wife thought it looked like Darius Rukker as well.

Anyone have the original wallpaper? I would like to have a copy, as my wife is requesting now because she misses it since upgrading to 6.03?!

Which raised the question, what'll be Cecil's equivalent of Rucker's crossover to the country charts? ;-)
