Right click on the screen---->Fluxbox-menu-->Styles and choose the background you want. Hope this helps.

thanxs twilli thje solution was inside the FAQs!
I've already read it a few time ago but I forgot it was present!

Fluxbox looks like very nice! but now I have other 2 questions for you!

1. It uses more RAM than I expected! The RAM usage is like the other desktop manager I used till yesterday (XFce)!! But Fluxbox is just a windowmanager, and not a desktop manager: so why it uses so much RAM like Xfce??

2. I've got a 1800+ AMD processor with ATI 8500LE: I isntalled the latest ATI drivers and the performance improved a lot.
But if I run glxgears for a little benchmark under XFce, I get about 2400 fps, instead running it under Fluxbox, I get 1400!!! Why using fluxbox I lose fps and perfomrance?

Probably I've done something wrong, or just I need to configurate something else... can you help me?


thanx in advance, bye!
