linux mint fluxbox 11 out - well kind of - and QUIT problem

Postby anderigs on Sun May 29, 2011 5:02 pm

Hi
I just installed mint 11 (gnome version) and kind of adapted it to make it into a fluxbox version.
IMPORTANT caveat: I was using mint fluxbox 9 before, kept my home directory and am fully aware that a lot of automatic stuff in the future (esp. menu updates) will now have to be done manually.

You can read about the VERY few steps I had to make to get it all working here:

But I have one problem: how do I get QUIT from the menu to work. It seems to call something called "ciao" but I have NO IDEA what this is or where to find it or ...

Can anyone **PLEASE** help?

Cheers,
andE

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

The mint-fm2 package is what is responsible for the menu generation and the quit function. If you examine the source you should be able to find what you need. Also Crunchbang has an interesting solution that acts as a more "stand alone" quit function that should be rather easily ported to Fluxbox.

hi
I decided to try something new and took what I guess u were talking about from #!:
oblogout from https://launchpad.net/oblogout/

Download and unpacked. Then installed one dependency (python-disutils-extra).

Ran sudo ./setup.py install

Then edited /etc/oblogout changing only one variable:
HAL=false

it showed up but right now I cannot test as I need my session open. ;-)

Looking at the rest of the config the only command which will probably not work will be logout but being on my netbook I don't use this anyway.
THANKS for the tip - will post the results later and if I find a nice command for logout.

just incase anyone else is interested in my experiences ...
for some reason oblogout kept ignoring MOST of my entries in /etc/oblogout.conf - specifically:
logout = fluxbox-remote exit
shutdown = sudo shutdown -h now
restart = sudo reboot
so I ended up hacking __init.py and changing the default values to this and running the setup again. Which then worked fine.
There is probably a nicer way to do this but it worked. :-)
And now my logout screen looks like this:

Cheers & happy hacking!
