dock app for Fluxbox


So Fluxbox doesnt have any desktop icons. And all the programs that give it icons, put it in the root window, but then I cant get my screensaver as root, so What Im looking for is a "dock" type program like the one in WindowMaker. I just need to have some shortcuts without having the whole root window taken up for it.

Any sugesstions would be appreciated, thanks.

I still dont see it on the homepage (maybe its a freudian thing), but Thanks.


I was looking for a Program dock, ie. you can add program shortcuts in it. The things on the links are system resource managers,email checkers, etc.

Sorry mate, I shouldn't have done that ... :/

Didn't mean to embarrass you, I hate to be
rebuked in public, too.

Cordial appologies,
Tink
