This script is a generic background setter for window managers that do not set the root background image/color themselves. JWM is such a window manager, so you may notice the .background script is run from .xinitrc if JWM is set in the .desktop file.

The default .background script in DSL looks like this:

       xsri --color=#336699

It simply sets a solid color, using the xsri program.
