sadly I also don't have a .Xsession file in my home directory. Is there a file which globally sets settings for X, maybe in /etc/X11 or so?
I also could't find this "apps" file in the .fluxbox directory. I went ahead and created one though, but to no effect.
I looked in "init" and found that the path to my "apps" file is /home/myusername/.fluxbox , so in theory fluxbox should read my "apps" file. Does this file require a certain structure? Currently it consists only of the line you posted.
ThanX for any help
I've found a new workaround. I added the "gnome-theme-manager" command to the "apps" file, which causes the theme manager to show up when I log in. All I need to do is exit it, and all my icons are in place.
But come on, this is Linux, there must be a better, simpler way?!?!
Does anyone know, what exactly the "gnome-theme-manager" does when it starts up. It must call some daemon or something?
