    Is it still possible to set a solid colour for the desktop wallpaper?
    I couldn’t find any options in the wallpaper utility or in the rox documentation.
    I can see where the wallpaper is set in the pb_antiX-icewm file: in the pinboard\backdrop field.

    Yes it is. From inside the wallpaper utility select default color from
    the options menu.

    I see it now. There is a message under the wallpaper saying:
    “Note: you cannot change the color with rox desktop”.
    Thanks for the help.

    I don’t see any other options besides using icewm preferences file to
    set it with rox-desktop. I know space-fm has it in its options but
    haven’t tried. I just use the paint programs and make a blank solid
    picture and set it.

    My way.

    I made a Folder in ~/home/usename/Wallpaper.

    Downloaded tons of stuff from a site like below and threw them in there.

    Looked for that wallpaper folder in the choose section gui located in the l/h folder sidebar

    Gave the laptop to my autistic grandson looking like this

    I might be misunderstanding what is being asked here. I got a bad fever and the flu.

    I hope you feel better soon. Hot tea with lemon, honey and scotch (+ resting) sometimes makes wonders.

    Hope you get better Rokytnji,
    Premaeval was asking if Rox-desktop could set a solid background, which I
    don’t think it can.

    In a couple of seconds, one can find the answer on sourceforge: Theming the background of filer windows and Set As Wallpaper menu item.

    The easiest way to do it, is to make a pattern in desired color and stretch it.

    Something like:
