       Bsetroot  is  a utility that can control the appearance of
       the root window in three ways:  Either  give  it  a  solid
       color,  or write a two color modula pattern to it, or ren­
       der a gradient texture, based on two different colors.

       Bsetroot resembles xsetroot(1) in this  functionality  but
       it  supports  multiple  screen displays, and gradient tex­
       tures the same  way  as  Blackbox  or  Fluxbox  does.   It
       doesn't  handle cursors etc.  Bsetroot was originally part
       of the Blackbox package and was carried over with the code
       that became Fluxbox.


       Bsetroot  operates  in  three ways, you must choose one of
       the first 3 options:

       -solid color
              Sets the root window to specified color.

       -mod x y
              Creates a modula pattern. You must specify -bg  and
              -fg colors.

       -gradient texturestring
              Renders  the  specified  texture string to the root

              texturestring may be one of:

              Horizontal / Vertical / Diagonal / Crossdiagonal  /
              Pipecross / Elliptic / Rectangle / Pyramid

              Select  one of these texture types, they only apply
              when -gradient is specifed. You must  also  specify
              both a -from and a -to color.

       -display display
              Tells Bsetroot to connect to the specified display.

       -bg, -background color
              Background color.  Needed for -mod patterns.
