Linux Mint Gnome or XFCE to Fluxbox?

Postby ductiletoaster on Fri Dec 10, 2010 7:01 pm

Ok simple scenario I want and need to have a 64 bit os so i can run some 64 bit only applications. Also so I can utilize my system to its fullest potential. However the machine is a server i use for development and though i need it to be light weight i stil need a gui for some applications. So i liked Linux Mint Fluxbox alot. I always like Flux but never took the time to really learn it. I really liked some of the features the LM team as placed ino there fluxbox version....but its only 32bit from what i can tell.

SOOOOO.... I want to install a 64bit version of Mint and then install the required packages to make it just like the LM flux version.
If any one can point me to a guide that will do this i would appreciate it.

I am plenty familiar with terminal and Debian based linux so im not shy! :D

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I usually prefer Xfce to build Fluxbox on, has more apps I like, so less to replace / remove.
If you use Nautilus, you need to tell it not to run your desktop for example, while Thunar does not.

Ok im not simply looking to add fluxbox as a window manager like u might for ubuntu.... cuz i have done that. I want to get the same feel as Linux MInt 9 Fluxbox version but for a 64bit mint

Any guide or what not would be great. Thanks for the advice i would probably use XFCE then
