Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I want to make gkrellm start in the fluxbox slit on startup, everywhere i've read it says you add the app names to your ~/.xinitrc. Only problem is that my user account has no .xinitrc. I coppied the one from the root account , but it was for windowmaker, so i changed the last line to say fluxbox instead and added gkrellm -w to the line above.
-jesus...just create file .xinitrc in your home dir with one line ( well, two ).
-save it and make it executable
I read this thread with great interest since I also want to startup some apps while using fluxbox. However, whatever suggestion I follow, nothing seems to happen. Is there a way to check whether my .xsession is actually accessed?
And another thing: to test it, do I have to reboot, or is log off/on enough?
Abe I thought you relieved me from this annoying thing, but also this doesn't work for me. I must be doing something completely wrong?!
I wish I could give more details but I have no clue which. I have tried adding the startup progs to .xinitrc, .xsession, and now this apps file.
About apps: doesn't fluxbox have to know somehow that it should look in that file? I added the line session.appsFile: ~/.fluxbox/apps to the ~/.fluxbox/init file, but no luck with that either.
Re: upgrading to development version, Slack 9.1 comes with the stable, but I just did the standard ./configure, make, make install on fluxbox 0.9.9 and it works fine. I don't know if 0.1.14 is still hanging around somewhere, but I'll deal with it later... still tweaking my slit... for some reason, it doesn't load the apps in the order that I want... *grumble*
