fluxbox : icons in taskbar?

Hi, I know it's childish, but I like to have applications icons displayed in my taskbar when I run programs.

Right now my fluxbox just displays text in that taskbar... It's sad, and I saw screenshots proving icons can be used...

SO how?

Thanks for your help!

Argh! Waste of RAM!!

I think what you saw were probably 0.9x screenshots of flux. 0.1x is current stable and 0.9x is current development. Not that I've ever tried, but I don't think 0.1 has this feature. So you could try a 0.9 - I used 0.9.6 for a little while but it did funky things with gkrellm in the slit - or wait for 1.0.

Yeah, if you get CVS version of fluxbox, you get this and other funky features (transparent menu, theme pixmap support, etc). I'm running CVS version now, and i can tell you its still very unstable! I suggest you wait for next official release.
