I had the same problem with ~/.xsession. chmod it as executable.

Hmmm I duuno about this. I used xsetbg in ~/.xsession and set a bitmap.
I'm using fvwm95 and I do remember seeing a line in there for a basic color.

This is what mine has as the default. It might work on plain fvwm.

# Set the default window colors. The syntax is:
#  DefaultColors winforecolor winbackcolor titleforecolor titlebackcolor
# where:
#  winbackcolor    is the background (border) color of all windows,
#                  including the menu windows 
#  winforecolor    is used for the menu text
#  titlebackcolor  is the background color used for title bars of 
#                  non selected windows
#  titleforecolor  is the color of the title text of non selected windows
DefaultColors   Black #c0c0c0 #c0c0c0 grey51

Hope I helped.....you're on your own with the other questions.
