Mint Fluxbox has four workspaces by default. You can either scroll the mouse cursor on the desktop to switch between them, or use ctrl+alt+left and ctrl+alt+right to achieve the same functionality.
They keyboard layout thing is something I want to put some more effort into for future releases. You may be able to install gucharmap and have some degree of success there, but the list of available layouts by default in the Fluxbox edition is rather slim.

I'm also a very big user of Dropbox. Honestly I find it very hard to live without it as I'm always moving between a number of installs on a number of different systems.
Also, there is no graphical pager for which desktop you're on. Simply use the keyboard shortcuts and know that there are four of them. The Fluxbox menu gives you the option of adding to or subtracting from that number.

You are assuming correctly. All of the *box window managers work the same way.M_Mynaardt wrote:And just out of curiosity, for you, what are the way cool features of Fluxbox that one just can't do without? I'm asking that mostly to avoid stumbling in the dark (much)...
I personally like the low resource usage and the ease of configurability without having to understand the syntax of a markup language. It's quick and usually painless to configure it however you see fit, or even to use it as the backbone for a full desktop environment. Personally I'm a huge fan of the right click menu versus using a traditional panel oriented menu system.
