Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Visit this link it's about a wallpaper changer called fbsetbg (i think you should already have it, check ). It has information on getting the wallpapers to stay (they get switched back to the theme one) and being able to change your wallpapers from the menu. http://www.xs4all.nl/~hanb/software/...x/fbsetbg.html
I still have not been able to get the Num Lock to work on the system start-up. I tried the above mentioned and also what is mentioned on the other threads. Has anyone had luck in doing this? I am not to worried about it because fluxbox rarely crashes and I have to restart the CPU only once every week.
i compiled idesk from source to run my icons in fluxbox and it works really sweet
i'm trying to sort my backgrounds now - i have the most recent dev version of fb and it seems, from this thread, i should have fbsetbg already. Can anyone confirm this? I'm not on my box so i can't check! I know I need and eterm install as well - i read at fbsetbg that an standalone esetroot install is a bit of an nightmare
Since your running vector (which is based on slackware) go here http://www.eterm.org/download/ and download the slackware package for eterm. It has all the dependancies and everything. Just extract the file and 'installpkg' all the files inside. You should have fbsetbg already if you installed the latest fluxbox. To find you just open a terminal window and typ 'fbset' and then hit tab. If it gets filled in to 'fbsetbg' then you have it.
as far as i know yes - i've read people saying it's difficult to set up but i had no probs at all - i reckon it's pretty good. I couldn't get fbdesk to compile, that lets you do a bit more configuration i think, but idesk is pretty cool, you can have single click launching and different operations for left and right click, you do have to edit text files to make changes, which can get a bit tedious if you have loads of icons and you moved all your .pngs and therefore you have to change the icon path for every icon...but if youonly want a few i.e. less than ten, don;t think you'll be too bothered!
