fluxbox style file


What do I set session.styleFile (in my /home/jdier/.fluxbox/init) to in order to have fluxbox remember the last style that I chose when I reboot?

I have about 4 dfferent styles and I just want fluxbox to come up with the same one that I used last session.

session.styleFile: /usr/share/fluxbox/styles/Meta

That will or should tell it which style to use.. second line of course is the path to your style.

tricky. You got me part of the way there. I used your suggestion and replaced Meta with one of my style files and it always defaults to that style: THANK YOU

But, I have another question. What I really want is for flux to remember which style I last chose from my flux menu.

So, if I start with Gentoo but change to Lingo then exit, when I restart, it automatically goes to Lingo.

Any ideas?

I don't think Fluxbox has this ability built in. There may be a tool (maybe fluxspace?) to do this...check
http://fluxbox.sourceforge.net

Another option is writing a shell script which edits your init file...I just woke up, though, and can't sort out how to do it at the moment =o/
