fluxbox and kde icons/apps


I am running Mandrake 10 with the 2.6.7 kernel and wanted something a bit different than KDE. So I installed fluxbox with RPM Drake. So far so good and I've figured out *some* of the configuration of the menus, themes and general stuff. Lovin it so far - light and fast!

Now is there a way to activate the KDE icons and dockable apps if flux has been installed using the Mandrake RPM package? Or is a tarball the only way to get that set up? I've looked around on the Fluxbox website and searched these forums, but nothing to address that particular question.

Thanks from the warm 40F Alaska

As much as I can tell kde is a desktop environment and fluxbox is a window manager,so without running the kde panel I don't think those kde dockapps will work(I don't use kde so not sure)But there is alot of stuff that will work and do the same as those kde apps.You can use any icons you want.Lots of stuff for fluxbox;

Thanks for the link. But I know that the KDE icons will work if you compile the souce using a certain perameter during install. I'm wondering if there is a way to get that same thing after an RPM install.
