Fluxbox tutorial?

Postby groovydaddy » Thu Jan 13, 2011 6:09 pm

Is there a Fluxbox tutorial somewhere in the Mint forum? I haven't used Flux much, but I'm intrigued by it! :D If there is not one on the forum, where can I go to read up on how to work Flux?

Thanks everyone!

I'd rather use Mint

There is some information at http://fluxbox-wiki.org that might be useful. When I first started messing with it, I just fooled around with the configuration files until something broke, then I tried to figure out how to fix it. If you have any specific questions, let me know.

go to the fluxbox wiki.

They have a ton of information. But really the best way to learn fluxbox is to use it. The great thing about flux is that all the configs are text files, so you can change the menu or theme or whatever by just changed text files. Bad thing? Everything is controlled by text files and if you aren't comfortable using command line and text editors, flux could be frustraiting.
