New to Mint and Fluxbox, couple questions.

Postby b-rock on Sat Jan 15, 2011 10:56 pm

So I have been searching for a linux distro that I liked, and would run on my new netbook (wanted a new toy). I tried all the Ubuntu's and none of them ran the way I wanted on my LT25, also tried Fedora and Kuki but got same feeling. So today I tried out Mint and 2 different flavors of it. Fluxbox and lxde. of the 2 Fluxbox works the best (Using Mint 9 for LTS). I only got a couple questions...

I hate having a 24hr clock. I tried to change it but It was only changing the fluxbox one, not the mint bar one (using right click menu). How to I change the Mint bar one (the one with rounded corners)

My other question is where might I be able to find more information on how much you can do with Fluxbox, in terms of security testing and customization? cause google is not liking me today.


Thanks

Regarding clock:

Go into Thunar click ctrl-h to show hidden files,
In there youll see .tint2rc
I prefer a 12 hour clock than a 24 hour.
Change the stock clock setting were it says [clock] time1_format = %_I:%M%P this will give you a 12 hour clock. Don't forget to save.

.tint2.rc is where you can do a lot of customization.
