How to set background wallpaper in Fluxbox

Fluxbox is way faster then both KDE & Gnome, but on the other hand it can be a bit more tricky to configure since there are no decent graphical user interfaces to help you do this. Setting a new background wallpaper on your fluxbox isn't quite that hard if you follow these easy steps.

1.) Open up a terminal. Personally I prefer xterm.
2.) Now you need to edit the startup file for fluxbox. I prefer using the editor called nano. Simply type "nano ~/.fluxbox/startup", and you will jump into your nano text editor.
3.) Look for a line starting with fbsetbg. If there is a "#" at the start of the line, remove it.
4.) If there is none add one like this: "fbsetbg -f /home/user/.fluxbox/wallpaper.jpg".
5.) Place your wallpaper in the location you just specified.
