ok i got some questions to ask:
in JWM how do i change the desktop background?
Configuration of JWM is done by editing "system.jwmrc" as su. This file is XML making it easy to edit, either by hand or programmatically.
Before restarting JWM, it is a good idea to run "jwm -p" to make sure the configuration file is free of errors. Otherwise you may end up without a root menu.

Within the Desktopstag the following tags are supported.

A command to be run for setting the background.
Desktop-specific data. The name attribute may be specified to name the desktop (the default is the desktop number). Within this tag, a Background tag may be specified for a desktop-specific background. See Background above for more information.
