Here is what is happening:
I startup the ol' computer, Choose Ubuntu, select my user, and change session to Fluxbox, enter password, press OK,BLACKSCREEN.
The reason I think this is happening:
My wi-fi wasn't working, Searched on the web and found this dandy little helper:
To be inserted in ~/.fluxbox/startfluxbox. Which I did right before the 'exec fluxbox' line, as it said that was the last thing to run.
The first time I tried it, I did it in terminal from an already active session (prior to adding it to flux/start), terminal ran it and my wi-fi worked great! However it never stopped running the command and returning to :$
. So I think with it being BEFORE the exec flux, that it is stuck in a 'loop'. retrospectively this was not the smartest of moves, But as my signature says 'You know that thing you did? don't do that.' ... So now I know
What I have tried:
Editing the file from another distro [b]&/b] editing it from same distro, just using ubuntuclassic as my DM. But it is not showing startfluxbox just start (which isn't the same file at all NOR does it have the nm-applet line), even when I enable Show Hidden Files.
What I would like:
For anyone willing and able to give me a tip,trick,suggestion,idea,feedback, or anything on how to A.) Start Flux & B.) where to properly insert nm-applet
at to keep my wi-fi going.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, and thanks for any suggestions you can give.
