Have installed fluxbox in preparation for the fact that if I ever go beyond 8.1, I'm going to lose enlightenment. (sob)
I can run it if I type xinit /usr/local/bin/fluxbox.
But that is the only way I'm successful with it. I've tried to start from kdm or gdm, but no luck with either. FWIW, I think gdm looks nicer (at least the dropline version). With gdm, I at least get the fluxbox option to show up in the choices, but then when choosing it, the screen goes blank for a while, and then kicks back to gdm.
Here's what I've tried, based on searches in this forum.
Added " fluxbox)
to the Xsession file. AS stated before it doesn't show up as an option.
Under /etc/X11/xinit I added an xinitrc.fluxbox file that I essentially copied from the others, except changing the wm to fluxbox.
In gdm/Sessions/ , I added a Fluxbox file containg /usr/local/bin/fluxbox. It at least shows up in the choices, but like I said, doesn't run.
Thanks for any tips. Of course, running it, I still have a slight preference for e (except for the crappy fonts), but would at least like to try and figure this out.
