kdesktop fluxbox


I would like to know if there is any way to run the kdesktop in fluxbox wail still being able to use the right mouse button to enter the fluxbox menu. I've tried but can't quite figure it out. If anybody knows how to edit either fluxbox or kde or by editing the .xintrc file to get this to work it would be greatly appreciated.

if kdesktop is a window binary, jsut open an xterm and cd to the directory, then type,
./kdesktop It will pop up.

If you mean to add this to your menu, look into the /home/Desktop directory, or /home/.fluxbox directory,

If all you want to do is make kdesktop start when you startx, then add kdesktop &
to your /home/user/.xinitrc file or, the global xinitrc file.

AutOPSY... I might be wrong but... I think he wants to use KDE as his desktop (window manager) and still be able to use the menues in the right-button of the mouse 'a la' fluxbox.

yes you are correct I was able to add it to my xintrc and get it to look like a regular desktop but I ran into a problem when I tried to right click. I tried editing the mouse click buttons but it still didn't work. Is there any program or option in kde of fluxbox that will enable me to be able to open the fluxbox menu on the kdesktop.

In the KDE enviroment, click in...
Aplications Menu (very left in task bar, the gear with the K on it)> Settings > Control Center
There select...
Desktop > Behavior
You can configure the menues for all 3 buttons of the mouse.
It has been long time since I tried Fluxbox, but I hope you can achieve your goal in this way.
