Good Day,

Long time subscriber, first time poster. Would like to say thank you to everyone
that has put forth time and dedication to making dwm possible. Dwm was the
motivating factor for migrating all of my Windows workstations to Debian
(gnome, kde, flux, e17 all seemed like a step in the *wrong* direction). My
entire network is now Windows free because of dwm - thank you, I really can't
say that enough.

With that out of the way, despite reviewing the results of a few Google queries
and browsing previous mailing-list threads, I have a few issues/questions.

Here's some of the details...

dwm version:

        sysop_AT_q9550:~/.dwm$ md5sum dwm-5.6.1.tar.gz
        35cdf9b6e214a395e1bf0a10ecd05fb6 dwm-5.6.1.tar.gz

2 x 22" Widescreen LCD Monitors @ 1920x1080 with an NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT.
Xinerama set to 1, TwinView set to 0.

Here's the xorg.conf:


How do I define a background-image for each monitor, individually?

The following command produces undesirable results:

$ feh --bg-scale ~/media/images/wallpaper/dwm-3d-bg02.png
 - scales across both monitors rather than each one individually

Also, does UXTerm have a transparency feature? The man pages for xterm and
UXTerm fail to make any reference. If not, what alternatives if any would you
suggest? I recall seeing a (Gentoo, I believe) thread regarding an alternative
to UXTerm that was light-weight and offered a few more customization options,
but I'm unable to relocate it.

Finally, can someone provide or tell me where the documentation is for the new
"monitor" option defined under the rules[] in config.h? Is "0" the left
monitor and 1 the right monitor as defined in the xorg.conf? What would "-1"?
be, then?
