Hi, and welcome to LQ!

Tell us what distro you're using, and from where you're running that command.



Cheers,
Tink

Delete your /home/username/.fluxbox folder and try it again

I cross compiled fluxbox and X11 for arm-linux and im running it on emb-linux target device.
i even tried by deleting /.fluxbox folder and the result is same.

I don't know how you run it, but I cant run fluxbox directly from console by running startfluxbox. I can however start a failsafe X and run startfluxbox. Try entering this:
#!/bin/bash
exec fluxbox

iside your .xinitrc (Backup old one)
and run startx instead.

The Fonts error got solved by removing .fluxbox folder and then copying a fresh .fluxbox folder
The locale error got solved by re cross-compiling X11 (may be locale folder was missing in X11R6 folder)
