1) How do I update it? I tried Apt-get and it said I have the highest version...but the version I have is "Fluxbox 0.1.14 : (c) 2001-2002 Henrik Kinnunen"
AFAIK, that's the latest stable one, at least in Sid.
check fluxbox's site.
2) How do I change the wallpaper? I have asked this before with Blackbox, but I have thus far not been able to find any of the files that were mentioned.
No idea, for this and other cosmetic questions, go to the fluxbox forums and the #fluxbox channel, in the IRC.
I don't use any of that, sorry.
Side story, I have a "~/.fluxbox" directory, but I do not have a "~/.blackbox" directory.
You should have ~/.blackboxrc as a hidden file, best to man blackbox.
3) Widgets. How? Where? What am I talking about; I think that these are widgets... Things like the toolbar on the right hand side.
Here are some more...
4) That nifty Mac Doc on the above (^) page.
5) LOOK AT THAT KRELLM! How do I get one like that?
same as question 2
6) What is iDesk and fdesk?
programs that come with icons.
As you can see I really want to mod out my Flux Desktop (kinda sorry I installed Gnome now, if I can get Flux to work, I won't want it). I am not afraid to get my hands dirty in the config files, BUT that is not exactly my area of expertiese. I am ready to learn and mod.
You can make Fluxbox, Gnome's window manager instead of Metacity, just a thought.
IIRC, version 0.9.9 is a development version, still not in .deb format, if you
want to install .tar.gz files or from source look into the program 'alien' from Debian, otherwise, these files may scatter in your system, causing problems later on.
