Im in need...............


I have fluxbox installed and it shows up in sessions and works, i have set my preferences in the menu bar, ie. the prgs i want etc.. and have set up my styles but i cant get the background to run with my style or at all.

it says fbset cant find the file /home/neil/~./fluxobox/backgrounds
and i have changed the style file command to that but it still wont get it, where am i going wrong?

Cheers.

It should be just /home/neil/.fluxbox/backgrounds
or ~/.fluxbox/backgrounds

do you have this directory: /home/neil/~./fluxobox/backgrounds
probably not it would be either ~/.fluxbox/backgrounds or /home/neil/.fluxbox/backgrounds you need to check your scripts and correct.

Yes sorrry i made a typing error there. Its fluxbox not fluxobox.

I have the directory and have changed the command in the style with an editor to include the path where i keep my backgrounds but it still doesnt work, i have an error message on change of a style saying that fbset cant find the background.

Is there something i need to download, can i do it any other way? i heard that you could change the menu file to add a submenu so you can have your backgrounds as well as your cunstom styles so then you can just click it and have it on?

if it can not find the file the path is incorrect simple as that.
