Open a rox window and right click > options.

Choose the 'compatability' settings.

Untick 'pass all backdrop mouse clicks to windows manager'

Click ok button.

Right click on desktop, choose 'backdrop...' and drop in yer piccie.

this will disable the jwm menu on right [or left] click. I prefer to keep it, so I right click on an icon instead.

Nice thing... does anyone know how to get just a solid colour as background? I can choose "clear" from the background menu, but that makes a really ugly pinkbrowngrey desktop, i would like to have two different-coloured desktops in solid or gradient colours. I edited "_root_jwmrc" and put in the line

<Desktops count="3" Background="solid"/>

and ran "fixmenus"
but it didnt help so either my syntax was wrong or this is overridden from somewhere else. Who knows more?
thank you

@hanzf

One way to make a solid background is as follows. I'm something of a newbie as far as Puppy is concerned, so this may not be the best way, but it works for me in Puppy 4.2

Use Gimp or mpPaint to create a small image (say 50 x 50 pixels) and simply fill the image with a solid colour of your choice.

Save the image in /usr/share/backgrounds/

Go to Menu->Desktop->Wallpaper

Select the image (colour) you want to use, and set the mode to Stretched.

Click on Apply and you're done.

Mikeb, I make a simple script that can set a picture as wallpaper. We also can add this to right click. Here:
1. make a new script, name setaswallpaper in /usr/bin
Code:
#!/bin/sh
  aku=$(basename $1)
  cp $1 /usr/share/backgrounds
  set_bg /usr/share/backgrounds/$aku

2. right click any picture (.jpg, .png) in rox filer
3. customize
4. open another rox /usr/bin in rox
5. drag setaswallpaper to send to in rox
I'm sorry..

Hmm yes I had a script working like that in puppy 2 but it could choose the options ... since later Rox could do it anyway I thought using that made sense.

No apologies needed... If no one uses my ideas I am really not bothered lol

I had the same question and found my solution:
ROX > Options > Pinboard
Then standard "color pickers" appear for setting the colors of the (solid) desktop background, icon text, etc.
