Fluxbox on SUSE
In the past I have suggested using the "checkinstall" method
for building Fluxbox RPMs for yourself. I recently installed one of Pascal's
Fluxbox RPMs found here
and have found it to be much better.
It installs a few directories inside your
~/.fluxbox directories and a script that makes launching apps at startup much easier. I had previously used
.xinitrc, but this had the side effect of launching them when booting into KDE (for example) and Torsmo did not play nice.
So this is a (another) case where building a simple RPM using checkinstall for yourself may not be the best method.
If you have your own checkinstall RPM installed, I suggest:
- Exiting Fluxbox and logging into a different window manager/desktop environment
- Downloading Pascal's Fluxbox RPM
- Renaming your
- uninstalling Fluxbox
- Installing Pascal's Fluxbox RPM for your version of SUSE
- Logging back into Fluxbox
- Integrating your "old" (renamed)
~/.fluxbox with the "new" one
I've updated my Fluxbox page
to reflect this suggested method.
