I belive that screenshot is of the CVS version which the last time I checked was a mess installing. I tried it and failed. The config script was messed up so was the make and well with out going through make you cannot make install.

About the .torsmorc file you have to make it yourself. The source comes with a example config and that i did was rename it and copied it into /home/yourusername/

hope that helps

here is some good info on the Torsmo configuration:
http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t...rsmo+tips.html

As Maze stated, the file .torsmorc needs to be created and put in your /home/yourusername/ folder. Once it's created just restart torsmo.

Well, If your using KDE then just create a link to /usr/bin/torsmo in your /home/yourusername/.kde/Autostart folder.

remember .kde is a hidden folder

Fluxbox Config

In the /home/yourusername/.fluxbox/ there is a file named "startup"

look for this in it

Code:
# Applications you want to run with fluxbox.
# MAKE SURE THAT APPS THAT KEEP RUNNING HAVE AN ''&'' AT THE END.
#
# unclutter -idle 2 &
# wmnd &
# wmsmixer -w &
# idesk &
torsmo -b &
and add the red

You can edit the file .xinitrc instead. It's in your Home folder.
Just add the line
torsmo &
before the line
exec fluxbox (or something similar).

Found this little bit of info:

Startup Applications

The first step in customizing Fluxbox is to set programs that will be run when you start it up. There are three ways of doing this:

* changing the user's ~/.fluxbox/startup

This preferred approach only works when you are using "startfluxbox" to fire up fluxbox, which should be the default way in Gentoo's session-scripts for kdm/gdm/xdm. an example ~/.fluxbox/startup will be created with the first use of "startfluxbox".


$ nano -w ~/.fluxbox/startup

Add the names of each application that you want to start with fluxbox on their own lines and be sure to put an ampersand at the end (&). Then the only thing you will need to include in the xinitrc is "startfluxbox".

* Changing the user's .xinitrc

Some prefer this approach, since it works even if you are not using "startfluxbox" or some session-script which does not use "startfluxbox" (eg GDM in some cases). By default, gdm just checks the scripts in /etc/X11/Sessions and not .xinitrc and .xsession.


$ nano -w ~/.xinitrc

add fluxbox and any other aplication you want autostarted here.

* Using another bash script to be run everytime flux starts.

This option is fairly pointless unless you need something that the other two methods do not provide. First, open the ~/.fluxbox/init file with your favorite editor and have a look at the hints and examples in it:


$ nano -w ~/.fluxbox/init

Now find the line that says rootCommand, and change it to:

write full name.rootCommand: ~/.fluxbox/autostart.sh

Go to the .fluxbox folder, create the file autostart.sh and make it executable


Code: Creating autostart.sh

cd ~/.fluxbox/
nano -w ./autostart.sh
chmod +x ./autostart.sh


In this file, you can add as many programs as you want, such as gaim and aterm. Just be sure to put the ampersand (&) sign at the end of every line so that the execution is not delayed (this can be the expected behavior sometimes).

The basic difference between first/second and third approach is, that the third approach is executed after fluxbox starts living and the other two are executed before fluxbox starts. That makes it pretty hard (aka impossible) for the third approach to set some environment-variables.
