This took me a little bit, so i write it down. In ~/.wmii-3.5/wmiirc, replace the following line: xsetroot -solid '#0b1014' with a command to set the background image, such as eval `cat $HOME/.fehbg` & (requires feh) Now i don't have to bother anymore with the configfile, feh --bg-center ~/path/to/image sets the backgroundimage and after a reboot the last shown picture is set.
