Thank you vtel57.

Thanks mate. That's the default Flux panel, I just added the following in my ~/.fluxbox/startup file and set the toolbar alpha to ~130:

Very nice job. You are a WM artist.
That's too much of a compliment to a WM newbie who all his computing life just used gnome2 and KDE4. I was inspired by you minimalist guys here. But thank you so much, I'm much motivated now.

I'm playing around with Conky as I type.

Regards.

As far as number 2, I have no idea why you're seeing that behavior with not being able to maximize other applications. Seems like a weird window manager bug.
Yup I already found one here :-
http://www.larsen-b.com/Article/284.html

Looks neat, thanks to the owner.

And I think it may be a bug with the WM or with gkrellm+Fluxbox because :-
1. When I start gkrellm in my current session in the background using gkrellm &, I can make my other applications full screen plus I can move the gkrellm window around/change its location.
2. However when gkrellm is started using the ~/.fluxbox/startup file, it's position is always fixed and I can't make other applications full screen. WEIRD!

Another glitch :-
3. When I used parameters gkrellm -g +1260+0 & or for that matter any other coordinate in the ~/.fluxbox/startup file to specify its location at startup, it breaks the Fluxbox window. I just get the gkrellm window, no toolbar, no right click. Everything freezes. So I think its Fluxbox+Gkrellm specific glitch.

Regards.

I've been using gkrellm for years with Fluxbox. I'm starting it the same way, "gkrellm &" in my ~/.fluxbox/startup file. I believe I "saved" the position and size of the window so it goes to the same place every time. It has never given me any issues. If it had, I wouldn't be using it. I would almost be inclined to say you have something corrupted. I've had so few bugs and problems with Fluxbox, which is one reason why I continue to use it. I hate instability and I care a lot about speed.

Here's a picture of mine which has changed very little in the last few years.

Wow, your gkrellm almost resembles a Conky window.

I'm going to test if this behavior persists for another user with a fresh profile once I'm done finding out the cause of Xserver startup delay with kernel 3.17.0-RC2 on Slackware-current.

Regards.

UPDATE:-

Apparently that gkrellm bug of mine was because of a couple of corrupted styles. Removed all styles, added which I wanted and now I can maximize my other apps over the gkrellm. Good stuff.

But I keep experiencing other minor glitches with this my own compiled Fluxbox now, every other thing is getting corrupted now and then. Shall monitor for some more days.

Regards.

I didn't do much. I'm not that talented. I used the "Invisible" theme and flicked a few menu settings. Otherwise it's stock gkrellm.

As far as Fluxbox... I used some other themes I got from one of the official maintainers of the Fluxbox themes that come with Slackware. This particular one is called "magni". I did a quick search and I found these: http://tenr.de/styles/ It's been too long so I can't remember for sure where I got all of them.

Cool

The case is about 15 years old. It has evolved over time just like the juts inside it. (I actually have a second, brand new, never used one that I use for "before" pictures.). This one involved some cutting, welding, epoxying, bleeding, soldering and a little bit of swearing to get it all done.

I have an 80mm intake on the other side that you can't see, and a Corsair 120mm H60 exhausting out the back. The case was never designed to have anything other than the top mounted PSU exhausting out the back, so that was a bit tricky.
