Fluxbox Style


Hi, I just installed fluxbox in Slackware 8.1. It's installed in /opt/fluxbox, and I have numerous styles located in /opt/fluxbox/share/fluxbox/styles , but when I open the Fluxbox-menu and go to Styles, there are none available. How do I access these? This is my first time running fluxbox from Slacware. Thanks for any help.

look into ~/.fluxbox/menu for [stylesdir]
...and edit accordingly.

What permissions do you have on the styles directory and the files themselves?

Here's mine:
Code:
masterc@masterc:/opt/fluxbox/share/fluxbox$ ls -lh
total 20k
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root         1.4k Sep 10 07:58 init
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root          294 Sep 10 07:58 keys
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root         1.8k Sep 10 07:58 menu
drwxr-xr-x   15 root     root         4.0k Nov 16 13:39 nls/
drwxr-xr-x    2 root     root         4.0k Sep 10 07:58 styles/
That shows that I have execute and read abilities on the styles directory as a normal user, then:
Code:
masterc@masterc:/opt/fluxbox/share/fluxbox/styles$ ls -l
total 100
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root         3255 Sep 10 07:58 Artwiz

masterc@masterc:/opt/fluxbox/share/fluxbox/styles$
Shows I have read priviledges on the files themselves.

Cool
