Slackware :: Start Program When Fluxbox Starts?

Apr 25, 2010

I use NetworkManager to handle my net connections and it's applet that allows me to control everything from the gui is called nm-applet. I was able to edit /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.fluxbox so that nm-applet starts when fluxbox does and away I go. From runlevel 3 that is.

On my laptop I like to boot into runlevel 4 for various reasons. When I start a fluxbox session from runlevel 4 this doesn't happen. What file do I have to edit to get this to start from runlevel 4?

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.

Ubuntu :: Login Manager Causes Conky To Not Start With Fluxbox

Jan 23, 2010

I recently upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10 and I have noticed an increase in loading time when logging in.What use to take less then 1 sec is now taking 3-4. It sometimes is able to start conky but most of the time it doesn't. When I manual run it after login in it has no problems starting.When I start a session with 9.04 I noticed it would go straight to fluxbox it would then take a few seconds to load conky and pidgin. When starting a session with 9.10 the loading seems to happen before the login manager passes control to fluxbox. When the login manager is finished pidgin is signed and ready, there is no more loading to be done.

Would removing the login manager and starting a session from the terminal be advisable? I only use fluxbox.

I would like to setup Fluxbox for a non-English, in this case German, environment. But I'd like to have the command line in terminal windows in English. With my attempts so far, either everything including command line error messages is in German, or nothing. Can anyone of you, please, provide a hint, what's the best way to solve this?

Slackware :: KDE Funnies After Ditching Fluxbox?

Feb 17, 2010

So with 13.0 I compiled the fluxter pager and it come back with 'unable to connect to server' when bringing up fluxbox...I noticed that in KDE there is a nice pager that after some playing fits quite well into an enlarged taskbar, and began to set up my application to remember where it is in the pager, and the size/position of windows...Now, I have it set so that only minimised windows show as icons in the remainder of the taskbar, but I have noticed when I start up my app that all the windows show as minimised even though they are not.... when I click through each page of the panner they begin to dissapear and eventually I am just left with a couple that once I click them (even though there already maximised) they dissapear and I am left with a clean taskbar..

After this minising the window works as it should.The process I have spawns new processes, generally one in each pager window, and each process spawns multiple windows within that page window, so I have a lot of minimised stuff to go through!This is compounded by the fact that I have selected to only show minimised windows from that 'screen', which doesnt seem to work, unless of course the panner is still working on one screen, and not taking into account the virtual panner windows...

Slackware :: Which GUI Library Works Best With Fluxbox

Jan 21, 2010

I am planning to develop an application that will have a GUI. The first priority is stability and second is performance. Portability and eye candy is not important. To fit these primary requirements the app will be run under and optimized for Fluxbox WM.

What is the best GUI development kit such as Qt, GTK or FLTK that is best fit for such an app? I mean what is the most stable, reliable and fast GUI development library that works best with Fluxbox?

Slackware :: Setting Up Network Manager In Fluxbox?

May 26, 2011

I'm running Slackware 13.1 with fluxbox as my wm. I want to set up network-manager along with the pptp plugin. So far I've installed the NetworkManager and the network-manager-pptp plugin along with all the dependencies specified in the slackbuild packages which I downloaded from [URL]. I could use some help configuring the network-manager so that I can launch it as a regular user rather than as root and I want it to come up in the fluxbox toolbar if possible.

Slackware :: Fluxbox + Cairo-compmgr Questions About Transparency?

May 25, 2011

ive used openbox for quite some time, but recently decided to make the switch to fluxbox. i have gotten everything up and running except for true transparency. i have seen screenshots in which this works, but i have not been able to duplicate the results.

in openbox, all i had to do was run cairo-compmgr at startup and my terminals were automatically transparent, and all the window effects i selected with cairo-compmgr were applied when i chose them. in fluxbox, i run cairo-compmgr, it starts up fine, and i know its running because i can use it's transparency settings to set whole windows to alpha (super + mouse scrolling), and the little "tab" buttons that fluxbox has have shadow effects drawn on them. the actual windows, however are not effected by cairo-compmgr running in the slightest. the windows themselves dont have shadows, and my terminals do not use transparency at all. even my xchat notifications have black boxes around them because not transparency is being used.

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.

Slackware :: Videos View Fine In XFCE But Not FLUXBOX

Jun 24, 2010

Trying to watch on-line videos in FluxBox - most will play some will not. I can't find any common thread re what does or doesn't play. Situation is the same no matter what browser I use (generally Swiftfox). If I switch to XFCE, there are no issues. Using standard install of 13.1 and have no other issues. Have no idea where to look or what to look for.

Ubuntu :: Get MySQL Daemon To Start When The Machine Starts Up?

Mar 17, 2010

I'm trying to get mySQL Daemon to start when the machine starts up (and it requires root privileges to run). The command to startup would be

Code:
sudo /etc/init.d/mysql start however that would prompt for a password, and that would not be very well possible now would it? Now, if i try to start it up without being root, it will not start. So this is my problem, maybe someone out there would know a bit more about this than me.
