Sure. You need to use something other than xsetroot to set
a background image. Just about any image viewing program will
do. For example, if you have xv, you would do:
xv -root -max -q imagefilename
If you have feh, you would do:
feh --bg-scale imagefilename
If you have some other image viewing program, read its documentation.
