"X Set Root Image"
This is a simple app that does nothing much -- and uses a
bazillion gtk2 libraries to do it. However, that means it
can do nothing much, but with STYLE.
This is a routine update.
[[ compiled using gcc-3.4.4-999 ]]
This will most likely be the final proj update for the cygwin-1.5
distribution; future development will continue with xsri-2.1.0-10
CHANGES (from xsri-2.1.0-2)
o Compiled against new modular X libraries
Setting the root image isn't very effective when using
cygwin-X's multiwindow mode, UNLESS you're using an application
that implements pseudo-transparency, like some terminal
emulators. The cygwin rxvt and rxvt-unicode programs do so, if
invoked in "X mode" using the "-ip" option.
However, xsri is still useful with other window managers, if you
don't want to use kcontrol or gnomecontrol or whatever -- because
it uses the (semi-)standard xatom "ESETROOT_PMAP_ID" and
EXAMPLE: within startwin.bat or startxwin.sh:
xsri --center-x --center-y \
--scale-height=100 --scale-width=100 --keep-aspect \
--emblem=<full cygwin path to image>
