Do you have the program Esetroot installed then? My system has a line
like this in my favourite style-file:

rootCommand: bsetbg -full ~/.blackbox/backgrounds/fook.png

I then have some settings in a file called ~/.bsetbgrc , but I think
that in the end bsetbg is just a wrapper for xv, so if xv is not
installed then you will not get a nice picture.

There might be several ways to skin this cat, so I doubt not that your
system may have it different.

Cheers, Stig
