Thanks Dj.

I like flux the way it is. I just want to know how it is done.(eyecandy.)
Does that make sense?

I have been using flux because I using a old p2 gateway someone was trashing, and it seems to be faster than some other wm's. Plus I like the minimalist setup.

Now I started using it on all my boxes. (it just feels right.)

Regards,
Blair

That screenshot is gdesklets,torsmo,pypanel,and aterm running on Openbox3 which is alot like fluxbox but you have to do a little more work but is fast and rock solid.I came from fluxbox and still use it.I have spent some time getting it to look good so I can help you out.Start out with idesk and getidesk-extras Just read the doc's and if you have any ? just ask away.Another nice one is torsmo You may be able to find some package's for slackware,just use google,I don't use slackware but once you get them installed I can help with the configuration.Next we will work on gdesklets,good luck and have fun

Yeah, I've heard a lot of people having trouble with gDesklets, I got it compiled and working first go on Gentoo but I'm having a few probs in arch This it's python related...

It's pretty easy to get your desktop looking very slick and WMs like fluxbox and blackbox are good choices to play with because they're very customisable

Gdesklets is working good in gentoo,on debian I can't get starterbar to work,and I can't get pypanel to work,pypanel can't find imlib2.Gentoo install's all the libs to /usr/lib but debian installs them in a couple of places /usr/lib and /usr/local/lib and then there are symlinks all over the place.Gentoo seems more organized to me.
