I am new to the forums, I ave just reviewed the rules and I am excited to join Linux Mint community.
I have been playing around with Linux Mint the past few days from the KDE, XFCE and Fluxbox distributions.
I have noticed thats there is not "mint-meta-fluxbox" package for Linux Mint 9 Isadora. Every other distribution has a "mint-meta-xx" package. I was running XFCE and I tried to add fluxbox to the distribution. I downloaded the "fluxbox" package but it is not the same as the Linux 9 Isadora Live CD install. I was disappointed as it is missing all the nice features that Linux Mint provides.
I found a forum that recommends using Linux Mint 6 Felicia to get the package "mint-meta-fluxbox". I add the repositories for both Felicia and Isadora, although only Felicia has the necessary "mint-meta-fluxbox".
My work around was to install Fluxbox first and then add the "mint-meta-xfce".
Is this package missing deliberately? I just thought I would bring it up to the maintainers to allow other desktop environments to easily add fluxbox.
Thanks again. Linux Mint Fluxbox is amazing.
Thanks for the great reply. I too would enjoy a Debian based Fluxbox edition.
Just one point though, Mint 6 has a meta package.
