fluxbox screenlets startup issue...


Hi, the thing is that i want fluxbox to execute in the startup file some screenlets features, as the clock, feedreader,googlemaps(expecially) at the moment i start in order to not have to do it again and agian each time i log in to the pc.


i try editing the fluxbox startup file writing:

exec screenlets

but what i have is actually the screenlets daemon to launch the lets, so i have to launch feedreader again and so on.


i installed some dock apps and they are good, do you know any site to download more?

Search google for wmdockapps ... screenlets & fluxbox seems like a very silly thing
to do; it's like settling for a SMART, and then getting a 10 ton trailer.

4 meg RAM size window manager, and a 60+ meg framework for piddly displays?

Also check out http://freshmeat.net, search for dockapps there.


Cheers,
Tink

But man, the problem is that i need to have GOOGLEMAPS on my desktop and a READFEEDER, i have them on gnome, but now i use fluxbox , and i wonder if there is a way of executing them (screenlets) from the
terminal(with a command) to add the command to the fluxbox startup file.

the thing is , i want to type in the terminal, for example:

Calendar (to get the calendar , and so on)

if your using debian is there a
script named startup in /home/user/.fluxbox?

I start gkrellm and others via this


Code:
# Applications you want to run with fluxbox.
# MAKE SURE THAT APPS THAT KEEP RUNNING HAVE AN ''&'' AT THE END.
printinfotext "Running startup apps..." &
yeahconsole --perl-lib ${HOME}/.urxvt-perl/ -pe tabbed &
systray-volume-control &
xset r rate 250 40 &
fbpanel &
gkrellm &
# conky -d &
so, thats gkrellm, fbpanel, systray-volume-control and yeahconsole starting with fluxbox

does that help any?
