I am facing a strange problem when running GE in black/fluxbox. As expected, a photo appears as I click an object on the map (an icon of a pic, a remarkable place, etc.) but this happens just once. The following clicks on any object give just an empty white rectangular that looks like a placeholder for a photo. In XFCE, everything works as expected.
My question is: do you observe the following behavior of GE and do you know a way to fix this? Filling [PATH] in qt.conf as suggested elsewhere didn't help. [Slack >= 13.37]
Thank you for the reply. I have checked GE in fluxbox once again and ... GE works as expected! The problem with blackbox probably relates to the fact that I have tried an older version than that included in Slack-14.0.
As for blackbox, I'm running version 0.65.0 from Slack-13.0 or so. I have a personal theme for it, which I don't have time to port to fluxbox or a newer version of bb. I like the way it switches between windows more than the fluxbox way: it doesn't switch immediately but shows a list of windows first. And it has a nice pager, which I haven't found for fluxbox yet.
I had absolutely no problems with bb other than the one with GE. In Slack-14.0, it cannot set the background image at startup: shows it for a moment and then hides. This is strange since it worked fine in -current. Probably, it's time to move to a newer version :-)
