Edit /etc/X11/window-managers.

The first (runnable) program listed gets run unless your personal default
overrides it.

Assuming you are running fvwm2, look into its documentation and change its
configuration files.  The most likely place to put your own preferences is
in /etc/X11/fvwm2/post.hook and /etc/X11/fvwm2/background.color

               ========= A message for Easter =========
God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that
the world through him might be saved. He who believes in him is not
condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he
has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this
is the condemnation: that the light has come into the world, and men
loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
