Sort of there - if I run it from console with -display :1 it doesn't
work[0]. If I run an xterm and do it from there, it works until I exit
I'd like it so as soon as you load up X it will change the background to
blue. Maybe if I ran it from a script rather than each command
individually from the console?

complains that the default X server is at :0
