Debian Multimedia :: Fluxbox Is Using 100% CPU

Feb 13, 2016

Debian 8, Fluxbox 1.3.5. I'll go to bed and my system is fine, in the morning I notice my system is sluggish. Changing focus between iceweasel and terminator takes > 10 seconds.

Top is telling me fluxbox is using 100% cpu. My system has 4 cores. Load average is 1.8. Next highest cpu user is iceweasel at 35%. iowait is 0. 4 gigs of free ram.

I'm guessing fluxbox shouldn't be using so many cycles. How do I collect enough information about what fluxbox is doing to file a bug report?

My end goal here is to have my system be responsive, ie, it shouldn't take > 10 seconds to change window focus.

Debian Multimedia :: Getting The Fluxbox Configuration?

Mar 30, 2010

I've been browsing the fluxbox documentation and the web looking for answers to a couple of fluxbox configuration questions. I'm unfamiliar with fluxbox and hopefully my empty search is my unfamiliarity with fluxbox terminology. I'm building a web browsing appliance (basically a kiosk). The only purpose of the system is to provide a web browser for house guests.

I had good success disabling most features in fluxbox, such as limiting keyboard hotkeys, stripping the main and window menus, deleting all but one workspace, etc.I have not found solutions for the following:

1. Disabling the workspace pop-up menu. This menu appears with either the left or right mouse button. As most people using this system will be familiar with the traditional desktop model and expect a "Start" menu, I would like to disable that workspace pop-up menu. I don't want users to have access to any configuration options anywhere.

2. Add an Exit/Logout button to the toolbar. The desktop menu has such an option. A toolbar button would be nice but is not required.

3. Same as the previous but add a web browser button to the toolbar. The desktop menu has such an option. A toolbar button would be nice but is not required.

Debian Multimedia :: Fluxbox Only Starts From Root?

Apr 29, 2010

I just installed Lenny base and added Fluxbox as wm. I can start Fluxbox from root with "startx" command but only get a light blue screen that is frozen if I try to start Fluxbox from the command line user ID using "startx." I think that it might be an ownership problem but I'm not sure what files I should change the owrnship of, if any. Some of the in installation of fluxbox was done from the root directory instead of from the user directory using the sudo command.

Debian Multimedia :: Packages Required For Fluxbox

Feb 28, 2011

I have a headless server which I have recently clean-installed debian6 on. I want to install fluxbox (I connect remotely using No Machine). I had a similar setup with debian5 earlier but have lost the notes I made during the previous install.When I google minmal gui installs, there are different 'recipes' concerning which base packages for x are necessary e.g. xorg, x-window-system-core etc.Which packages for x should I choose (and why)?I don't use a display manager (gdm etc.), and the hardware is not so powerful (via en12000).

Debian Multimedia :: Require A Calendar Application For Fluxbox

Jun 2, 2010

On xfce I really liked orage, however on fluxbox I don't want to install all its dependencies (xfce4-gui, xfce4panel, +++) for just a calendar. So, I'm looking for a light calendar app that will allow me to store appointments. Ideally it would integrate nicely with fluxbox, so either launchable by clicking on the clock, or else mapped transparently onto the desktop just like conky. If it could work with conky that would be pretty ideal as well, and it must have the ability to send notifications (either by sound or screen) about upcoming appointments, reminders, etc.

I've seen xcalendar mentioned on these forums, but it doesn't seem to be in the repos anymore (squeeze). Also rainlender, though I don't like that it's not in the repos and has pro/free versions. Sunbird is an option, but kind of large and clunky for what I'll be using it for. Right now I'm thinking gdeskcal is my best bet, but I'm hoping others will have better ideas. If gdeskcal fails to impress, I may have no choice but to go with sunbird (aka iceowl) and perhaps use conky to display the calendar on the desktop, and make it launchable from clicking the clock on fluxbox. My mail application is claws, which has some limited vlcalendar functionality.

Debian Multimedia :: Squeeze: Use Hibernate Function On Fluxbox?

Jan 28, 2011

I upgraded from Lenny to Squeeze.

I use Fluxbox as the window manager in X Window. I installed hibernate packages and gnome power management. I set the idle time at 30 minutes using the gnome power management program. It doesn't suspend at all. The monitor only shuts off during idle.

So, I logged in as root, started X. Without .xinitrc gnome desktop manager launched. As I clicked shutdown, it showed a dialog box asking hibernate / suspend / restart / etc. And then, I chose the [hibernate], the system shut down and came back to previous status when system restarted.

Which gnome program does control hibernate / suspend?

Is there anyway that I can control hibernate / suspend in command? I just need to make a little script and assign it to a launch key so that I can suspend the system when it's on idle.

Debian Multimedia :: Fluxbox 1.1.1 Toolbar - Title Changes Position

May 26, 2011

I only just upgraded to Squeeze and am now running Fluxbox 1.1.1. The toolbar is acting strangely, though, and I can't seem to find a solution online.
An example: I open Iceweasel, Thunar, and Icedove. If Iceweasel has focus, its window title will be on the left side of the toolbar. If I switch applications, and put that Thunar window in focus, the Thunar window title because the most-left item on the toolbar. I focus Icedove, Icedove's window title becomes the most left object on the toolbar and so on.

Debian :: Text / Icon / Window Sizing And Changing Resolution?

Feb 17, 2015

I am running Debian Jessie with Gnome 3.14.2 on a Macbook Pro 15" with retina display. My resolution is currently set to 2880:1800 and any time I try to lower it, the whole screen goes to black (even if I change it to something in the 16:10 ratio) and I just have to keep force restarting when doing that. I want to lower it because a lot of stuff is really small. Certain aspects of windows in programs are so small, and in order to properly view stuff on my web browser I have to increase the magnification to around 250% for it to be reasonable.

Some things seem normally sized in the windows, and thus make things awkward on the screen, especially in chrome. Is there a way to fix this without having to change my resolution and/or font sizes? Making font sizes bigger on the gnome tweak tool makes things look a bit more awkward because it squeezes the text into small spaces. I would rather keep a higher resolution for a better picture, and changing it seems to mess things up. Here is what my browser looks like (without magnifying). Notice how the font size in the bookmark bar is disproportionately large compared to the buttons in the top right to close/max/min the window.

And this problem isn't just in the browser, but for example, in matlab everything is extremely tiny. I want to make everything larger, not just the text...

Slackware :: Swap Window Managers From KDE To Fluxbox Or XFCE?

Jun 9, 2010

I often swapped window managers between fluxbox kde and gnome back when I ran ubuntu to suit my needs. When I installed slackware, I picked KDE because of the convenient app suite. I don't wish to uninstall kde but I'd like to be able to pick which environment I use when I swap to a GUI. Something like a flag, startx --fluxbox.

Debian Multimedia :: Changing Mimetypes In Nautilus?

Feb 9, 2010

I'm a user of Kicad, a schematic/printed circuit design suite. Kicad uses the extension '.mod' for its component module library files. When I view these files in Nautilus, (or one of my other file managers), they are displayed with a music note, and the file type is shown as 'Amiga SoundTracker audio'. I've never had such a file on any of my computers, and I'm fairly certain I never will. However, I have lots of Kicad module files on several computers. How can I make Nautilus report the correct filetype, or at least report an unknown filetype so my PCB libraries don't look like music files?

Here's what I've tried so far. I searched my whole system for files containing the string 'Amiga SoundTracker'. The only files that came up were three XML files:, mime.xml, and x-mod.xml.In each of these files I found one line that referred to both the extension '.mod' and the phrase 'Amiga AoundTracker'. (Also, in each case the line of code was the only one in its file that referred to the extension '.mod'). I commented out only this line in each of the three files, saved, and re-booted. After re-boot I confirmed that my changes to the files had persisted, yet my file managers still report my library files as 'Amiga SoundTracker'.Can I correct these filetypes, or am I out of luck?

Debian Multimedia :: XFCE - Changing Directory Icons

Jul 3, 2015

I want to give some of my directories special folder icons. For example, I have a Projects directory and I noticed that there is a special 'projects' directory icon available in my icon theme; I think that it would be nice to use that icon instead of the default directory icon.Google informs me that the file ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs can be edited to give certain directories special properties, including special icons. However, all my changes to the file get reverted after restarting my computer. Is there a way to make changes to user-dirs.dirs permanent?

Debian Multimedia :: Changing The Gphoto2 Download Directory?

Apr 16, 2010

This is probably a stupid question, but is there any way to change the location where gphoto2 dumps the photos it downloads from the camera? Right now it just dumps the them in the current directory.

I've looked through the man page and nothing jumps out at me. The only thing I can think of doing is moving the downloaded photos to a new directory via a hook script, but before I go down that route, is there some kind of option I missed?

Debian Multimedia :: Shortcuts For Changing Workspaces Don't Work

Dec 18, 2010

I installed a new login theme and I noticed that my shortcuts for changing workspaces don't work anymore. When I went to my keyboard shortcuts menu I found a completely different list of shortcuts, so I believe that I'm using a different Windows Manager than I've been using since installing Debian.

Guess I was wrong, I went into gconf-editor, went to metacity's keyboard shortcuts, and found mine disabled. I set them up again there and now they work again, even though they don't show up in the Keyboard Shortcuts menu.

Debian Multimedia :: Gdm3 Hangs After Changing User Name?

Jan 15, 2011

I changed my user name with the following commands:usermod -l $newname $oldnamegroupmod -n $newname $oldname usermod -d /home/$newname -m $newnameAlso replaced every instance of /home/$oldname ith /home/$newname in ~/.config.Now gdm3 hangs with a black screen and wristwatch icon. (I can move the icon with the mouse.) This worked fine with gdm. I've looked for gdm3 files that have /home/$oldname in my home and in /etc and couldn't find anything significant.Anyone have any ideas or suggestions on how to fix this or where to look? For now, I've disabled gdm3, and I'm using startx. This is an installation in virtualbox. I just tried using ctrl-alt-F1, but it dropped me to console in the host system. (Nice rush of adrenaline came with that.)

The only errors in Xorg.0.log are there even with a successful startx. (EE) Failed to load module "xboxvideo" (module does not exist, 0)(EE) open /dev/fb0: No such file or directoryCouple more bits of relevant information - this was a live-build that I installed using refractainstaller. I also changed /etc/inittab to disable auto-login. Here are the changes, original lines commented out, new lines look like the inittab in my regular squeeze install, but I don't think this is the problem (see below.)

#1:2345:respawn:/bin/login -f user </dev/tty1 >/dev/tty1 2>&1
#2:23:respawn:/bin/login -f user </dev/tty2 >/dev/tty2 2>&1
#3:23:respawn:/bin/login -f user </dev/tty3 >/dev/tty3 2>&1

Debian Multimedia :: Changing Default Text Editor In Xfce

May 28, 2015

I would like to set the default text editor in Xfce to gedit. The only solution that I found on Google was to right click on a given text file, select 'open with other application', sleect gedit, and make sure that the "use as default kind" button is checked. Unfortunately this only works for text files with the same extension as the original file. Is there a way of setting every text file to open with gedit by default that doesn't involve repeating this exercise for every possible text file extension (.c, .py, .h, .hs, etc.)?
