Slit configuration on Fluxbox


Hey, this is probably a repeatative question but... I am in need of help. How do I automatically start my Slit dockapps on login. Now I know this has been answered before and I've read at least some of those answers trying to browse for a solution the last hour. But these answers don't tell me anything. The most common reply is to edit your .xinitrc file. Now how do I do that without fucking up my X?
These are the dockapps I want to use: wmdn, cputnick, wmsm, wmmisc, wmcube, wmxmms.
So I try to edit my .xinitrc file or create it rather, since it didn't exist in the first place. And I edit is as follows:
Code:
wmdn &
cputnick -t 0.2 &
wmsm &
wmmisc &
wmcube &
wmxmms &
Now, this prevents me from going into X. I don't exaclty remember the error but if you think it is relevant, checking it will be no problem though I'd rather not do it right now. Yes, I am very new. And I'm using Debian Sarge on a 2.4.23 kernel. Using Fluxbox 0.9.8. Thanks in advance and sorry again for the repeatative topic.

is that all you have in .xinitrc, or did you add :
exec fluxbox
to then end of all that, and if not, then that could be your problem ..

Of course. Exec fluxbox did the trick.

In recent releases of Fluxbox you also have use of an "apps" file, which gives more control over what is loaded and how it is displayed in Fluxbox.
