Fluxbox fbsetbg set background with dual monitors

I’ve started using Fluxbox a while ago. Primarily in my work computer and next at home.

At my work there’s no problem because I only have one monitor, but at home, I use two monitors and fbsetbg wasn’t doing the trick, even not working sometimes. After a doing research I finally found the answer.

fbsetbg can be used stand alone (finding itself an app to set the background) or you can specify an application for it.

In this case, I’m using feh with xinerama support.

In the fbsetbg manual (man fbsetbg) it says that we need only to specify the background setter once, using the option -u . Still, in my fluxbox startup script I specify the option anyway..

So, to span wallpapers across two monitors, just use feh

Example in your fluxbox startup file:

Neste caso, não vamos criar nenhuma diretoria especifica para o osticket mas na raíz da maquina, ficando este servidor dedicado apenas a isto – ou pelo menos, o site principal

Raspberry PI music player gesture controlled with hover

Hover and Raspberry PI

Note: Didn’t get to output music from pygame to my bluetooth speaker. Always getting the following error:

But, I’ve connected some speakers to the jack output and was set !
