I am running Fluxbox 0.9.10-r3 on my Gentoo system and was wondering two things. One, if i update Fluxbox over portage will I lose all my menu and startup settings? Another is that whenver I start Fluxbox with iDesk the icons look like this : screen
While After I refresh it the transparencies come out like they're supposed to : screen1
Do you have the .fluxbox directory in you home directory? If not create one and copy all of the /usr/share/fluxbox/ init menu, etc. files except the style directory. This way you have you own init menu, etc. files.
Yes, there is a ~/.fluxbox directory and it works perfectly, so if i update all will still be there?
And the iDesk thing, I think it might have to do with shadows or something as it looks like its not transparent, but if i try chaging the Transparency or turn off shadows nothing happens it stays like that.
OK, I seem to have done it. It seems that since iDesk was being loaded before my background was set and the default is gray the icons were being set to gray transparency and never changed. So if you change your background in ~/.fluxbox/startup before loading idesk lower in the file, instead of edit .xinitrc or the Style file. So that seems to solve it. No more grey icons. Yay!
