Description Jukka Lehti 2002-04-16 12:55:49 EDT
Description of Problem:

ee --help says:

ee options
  -r, --root                  Set root window image and leave

However, using those options just opens an image window and ee doesn't exit.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Skipjack2, RH7.2.

How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. ee --root ./some_image.jpg (when in X)

Actual Results:

A new window with the image opens.

Expected Results:

The image should be set as X background.

Additional Information:
Experienced with gnome, fvwm, fvwm2.
Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2002-04-16 14:06:29 EDT
We're dropping ee for the next release, and it's too late to fix this for 
the current release. Suggest the "xsri" utility for this, do "xsri --help"

For general ee type stuff, suggest gqview or Nautilus or Konqueror.
