I’ve been using Goomwwm on and off, but seeing as it’s post-new-yearness I’m going to give it a try full time.
To set the background, I decided to use feh.
Simply create a .goomwwmrc in your home directory.
# Background exec /usr/bin/feh --bg-center /home/osaka/wallpaper.jpg # Sart up applications exec /usr/bin/lxpanel
That sets the background to an image in my home directory and start lxpanel up once goomwwm has started.
From here you should be able to work out how to start other applications. Simply prefix the application location with the command ‘exec’
