1. Tiny X11 Image Viewer

feh is a tiny image viewer for X11 that is primarily configured via the command line. It is very versatile and I primarily use it for setting the desktop background

2. Configuration

Set the background for the desktop environment. If the ~/.fehbg file doesn't exist, setup the bitmap wallpaper isntead. Add this snippet to the xinit user-level scripts.

if [ -f "$HOME/.fehbg" ]; then
    $HOME/.fehbg
else
    . $HOME/org/config/lib/shell/xrdb_colors
    xsetroot -bitmap ~/org/config/lib/bitmaps/tile.xbm -fg $XCOLOR0 -bg $XBACKGROUND
fi
