What is that application launcher dockapp in all the new Fluxbox screenshots?


Argh, this is driving me nuts, I keep emailing the guys at fluxbox.org with no reply, anyone know what this is? It looks freakin' slick.

just judging by how well it blends with the gkrellm on the left I would say its a gkrellm plugin

I'm sorry I'm an idiot. that's not gkrellm thats the slit. I know I've seen that app other places before (windowmaker, afterstep, and gnome 1.4 all had drawers like that).

Yeah, I just can't find it on any of the major dockapp sites, and it's killing me because it looks freakin sweet.

tell me about it, I visited afterstep and windowmaker websites couldn't find a damned thing ... like it fell off the face of the earth. I have afterstep on my laptop at home. I'll load it up, see if I can get it to do it and let you know.

till then, you said you emailed flux's web people or did you email the guy who posted the screenshot?

Their web people. Good idea though, I hadn't even thought of emailing the guy that posted the screenshot *bangs head on desk*

judging by this post it might be called 'fluxter' ... and it looks like the guy who owns that screenshot may work for the website (aleczapka?)

/ Slit pager for Fluxbox / 2003.08.16-04:10 CET
Steve Cooper wrote Fluxter which is "a workspace pager dockapp, particularly useful with the Fluxbox window manager". Besides being just a pager, Fluxter allows per-workspace wallpaper changing, looks even cooler then bbpager and has other nice features. Check it out.

Just saw this thread. Yes, it's wmdrawer, I've been using it for quite some time now and it's great. It provides me with quick application launching without having the annoyances of icons on the desktop.
