if you middle button drag a tab to another they will "snap" together. you can also specify a set of windows that will always snap together (useful for gimp) also if you use the right hand root menu on the tab then any new window from that app will attach. I dont generally use them unless its getting too messy.

yup. just like in galeon where you grab a tab and move it to the left or right. same idea. i use the middle button on my logitech mouse to drag-n-connect. you can even have commonly connected programs automaticly connect together on launch.

I see a lot of fluxbox screenshots that have the time in 12 hr format as well as the date on the toolbar. I cannot figure out how this is done. Can anyone tell me?

You have to edit your init fluxbox file. The line that deals with time format is:

session.screen0.strftimeFormat: %I:%M%p (%b-%d)

To see what switches are available for the time fomat do:

man 3 strftime

The example I gave you outputs the time like this:

01:01AM (May-29)

Here is my time format. It looks like this:

Wednesday May28, 2003 10:29 PM

session.screen0.strftimeFormat: %A %B %d, %G $l:%M %p

Kinda kooky but I think it looks cool.

Thanks a lot, now I can get rid of my calendar-clock dockapp. You know dockapps are cool, but the thing that draws me to fluxbox is its utter simplicity. Sometimes dockapps just seem to get in the way.

ok, I guess I'll throw my screenshot into the mix.

Any chance you know when it's intended release date is? I see 30 Jun on the site, but from all your threads I am assuming you know more than we do, so maybe you can spill some info on us

Cool

They look like the gentoo icon set which you can get here.

By the way,I like your desktop jymbo. What style is that for fluxbox?
