Hello Gentoomen,

I have been using Gentoo for about 3-4 months now, still learning alot but I have a pretty nice grasp on it for a beginner.
I have been customizing my DE though, and for some reason Feh does not want to autostart for me.

I included feh into my .xsession/(symbolic link) .xinitrc as well, but still nothing.

I think maybe I did it wrong and exec ./.fehbg or just ~./.fehbg in the file does not work.
So far here is the code for my .xinitrc (I removed the feh part so this is all it is at the moment)

Code:

exec dwm



Can any of you help me in my quest to get .fehbg to automatically load for me?

I'm using dwm with feh too.
.xinitrc:
Code:
conky | while read -r; do xsetroot -name "$REPLY"; done &
st &
st &
feh --bg-scale /path/to/picture &
exec dwm

this should work...

Alright so actually your .xinitrc did not work for my system but that is okay.

I just added before "exec dwm"
Code:
sh ~/.fehbg &


Simple as that.

Code:
eval $(cat ~/.fehbg) &
