Re: Quit menu only has logout and cancel icons

Oh OK... You should be able to hack it a bit to get ciao to work in your distro. Things you'll need to know... - The root daemon should be running. This is what does the actual power management action with root privileges. - The trigger directory in which ciao creates the triggers should be configur...

Re: LM9 Fluxbox RC - menu problems

I have informed Kendall of the bug and the fix. He is/will be working on it as time permits. This bug is present on v3.24... so I suppose any version after that will have the fix.

Re: Problem with Mouse Click

Hmm fluxkeys... My experience with fluxkeys in the the past has always been bad. It corrupts the config files all the time. Same goes for the menu editor. Simply editing the config files is simple and straight forward. This is my recommendation. Replace your keys file with the one found in /etc/skel...

Re: Problem with Mouse Click

Hi,

Open this file ~/.fluxbox/keys. It is a hidden folder so you may need to press Ctrl+H to see it in the File Manager. Then look for this line and make sure it is as follows:

Re: startup programs

As a rule of thumb, 'exec fluxbox' should always be the last thing that is run by the startup file.

Thank you mmesantos1 and Carl :) I saw the Plasma theme in my feed reader (It was recently submitted to KDE-look)... I instantly liked it and thought I should do something with it.

Re: LM9 Fluxbox RC - menu problems

After some testing I found that the change I mentioned earlier still breaks in other situations. This should work better: # GENERATE THE MENU CACHE createMenuCache() { debug tempPathReset debug debugMenuCacheGen $MENUCACHEGEN tmp=$(cat $LISTNEW) echo "$tmp" | sed '1,/^+Applications/{/^+Applications/...

Re: How to mount a camera manually?

The easiest way I have found is to install a dedicated photo manager such as F-Spot. This will install the necessary libraries to detect cameras that do not present themselves as simple external storage devices. After installing F-Spot you can use the import tool to grab your photos.

You can edit any of the files except ~/.fluxbox/menu. This file the over written when the menu is regenerated or when there is change in the Categories to be included.

Re: LM9 Fluxbox RC - menu problems

Can you please archive the ~/.mint-fm2 folder and upload it. It should give me an idea of what is going on. Running 'mint-fm2 generate' should give you a new menu... unless there really is some problem with the way it is generating the menu... I should be able to catch the problem if you upload the ...
