Simple color for desktop background

Update: 2022-08-16

Sometimes you don't need fancy background stuff for your system. Sometimes a simple background color is enough.

Here comes in a very old command, called xsetroot, which is a "root window parameter setting utility for X". So this is not for the 200 people who tries to use Wayland.

This is a command that you can set in your ~/.xinitrc file, or add it to Autostart scripts or what have you.

Here is a simple way to make any color as your background:

xsetroot -solid "#8679A1"

But works as simple color, like:

xsetroot -solid black

If we check the man page. We can see that you can set different things to, like cursor.
