=== What is feh? ===
feh is an X11 image viewer aimed mostly at console users. Unlike most other viewers, it does not have a fancy GUI, but simply displays images. It is controlled via commandline arguments and configurable key/mouse actions. [http://feh.finalrewind.org/ Feh homepage]
== USE-Flags ==
;<code>curl</code>: Add support for the Client-Side URL transfer library.
;<code>debug</code>: Enable extra debug codepaths, like asserts and extra output. If you want to get meaningful backtraces, see http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/qa/backtraces.xml.
;<code>exif</code>: Add support for reading EXIF headers from JPEG and TIFF images.
;<code>xinerama</code>: Add support for the xinerama X11 extension, which is mandator if you work in a multiple monitor setup.
== Installing feh ==
After adding your USE flags (or not) to <tt>/etc/portage/package.use/feh</tt>, you can emerge feh:
###i## emerge feh
== Using feh ==
=== Set desktop background ===
==== Command line switches and examples ====
<code>feh</code> provides several different geometries to set your desktop background:
* <code>--bg-center</code>: Center the image file on the background. If the image file is smaller in resolution than the screen resolution, it will have black borders around it.
$##i## feh --bg-center ~/Pictures/Wallpaper/MyFavoriteWallpaper.png
* <code>--bg-scale</code>: Fit the image to the background without repeating it, cutting parts of the image off, or using black borders. Because of these changes, the aspect ratio is not preserved.
* <code>--bg-fill</code>: Similar to <code>--bg-scale</code> except that it tries to fill the image to the screen while maintaining its aspect ratio. This may result in parts of the image being cut off.
* <code>--bg-max</code>: Similar to <code>--bg-fill</code>, except that scales the image to the maximum size that fits the screen. This leads to black borders on one side.
* <code>--bg-tile</code>: Tile the image across the screen.
* <code>--random <name of directory to choose random image from></code>: Allow feh to choose a random wallpaper from a directory of pictures.
$##i## feh --bg-<your background geometry preference> --random ~/Pictures/Wallpapers/*
*<code>--no-fehbg</code>: If you do not intend to use the <code>~/.fehbg</code> file, you can disable it using this switch.
$##i## feh --no-fehbg --bg-<background geometry preference> ~/Pictures/Wallpapers/MySecondFavoriteWallpaper.jpg
{{note|The ~/Pictures/Wallpapers/ directory is not where you have to store your desktop wallpapers. It is just an example.}}
=== Source fehbg to set your wallpaper in Openbox ===
After you have run <code>feh</code> one time, the directory of the image file is stored in <code>~/.fehbg</code>. This file can be sourced in your <code>.config/openbox/autostart</code> to load the picture instead of typing out <code>feh --bg-scale /picture/location.jpg</code>:
{{file|name=~/.config/openbox/autostart|desc= |body=
~/.fehbg &
