Currently using Mandrake 10.0 Official and KDE. I'm also booting into the console and NOT the GUI.
Earlier I managed to successfully install fluxbox after a little work, however I can't figure out how to get the default WM changed from KDE to fluxbox (and possibly back again), so when I type in 'startx' flux starts up instead of kde. In my searching I've figured out how to do it in RH and Slack ...but I'm using Mdk. I haven't found any reasonable solutions yet. I have a friend who is attempting to do the same thing, but he's logging into the GUI (selecting flux just logs him into KDE from what I understand). Clearly I'm still learning here, call me a newbie if it helps
So how do I do this? I apologize if it's a silly question, but the solution is lost to me...
worked like a charm
except fluxbox isn't listed for some reason. I get "kde, gnome, windowmaker, icewm, default, failsafe". I assume I need to edit a file somewhere, so where do I point my keyboard? I appreciate the help.
