I have built a working rpm for fluxbox 0.1.14 for fedora. I was able to successfully install and run the newest fluxbox on fedora core1 with it. http://grep420.net/rpms/fluxbox-0.1.14-1.i386.rpm.

If your default runlevel is 5 you need to add the session to dm. Here is an example of my session file. Make sure it is chmod 755 as well.

[root@xwing jsw34]# cat /etc/X11/dm/Sessions/fluxbox.desktop
[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=Fluxbox
Type=Application
Icon=
Exec=/usr/local/bin/fluxbox


[root@xwing jsw34]# ls -al /etc/X11/dm/Sessions/fluxbox.desktop
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 95 Jan 7 12:19 /etc/X11/dm/Sessions/fluxbox.desktop

For those of you with default runlevel 3, then you need to create an .xinitrc file in your home dir.

[jsw34@bullpen jsw34]$ cat ~/.xinitrc
#!/bin/bash
/usr/local/bin/fluxbox

don't forget to chmod +x ~/.xinitrc

I am an absolute linux-noob... I installed the RPM, and did the stuff to /etc/X11/dm/Sessions/fluxbox.desktop, but what do I do now? It currently loads KDE, do I need to keep it from executing kdm and have it load something else? This is proabaly a stupid question... :P

First that is not the fluxbox website it is here: http://fluxbox.sourceforge.net, and second that is for an older fluxbox version (0.9.8). My rpm is the newest version of fluxbox (1.1.14)

i believe this is a common issue with gdm and fluxbox and fedora... (something about utf-8? whatever)

http://www.aleph-null.tv/go.php?doc=20040819-1137-374.xml

See that.. in short it suggests using 'startfluxbox' rather than 'fluxbox'

To get the fluxbox menu, right click on a blank space on the menu. I put up a default menu from my ubuntu system, you might need to edit it to make it work...

Move this into ~/.fluxbox/menu
