Fluxbox and autostarted programs [Solved]

Postby tpprynn » Sat Aug 29, 2015 5:35 am

Hello. I've installed Mint 17.2 on an old laptop, initially Xfce, but I've added Fluxbox. I want Fluxbox to start with the file manager open and a battery monitor facility or possibly the file manager, a terminal and the battery monitor. Which file do I use in my situation (of Xfce and its default display manager plus Fluxbox)? Ideally if you could write the actual command to, that's help. I'm sure I knew how to do this once...

Thanks.

Add autostart programs to the ~/.fluxbox/startup file.

Thanks. I had another attempt and things seem okay now. I may have missed the '&' from after the program name, if that would cause Fluxbox to not start.
