Fluxbox Startup

Fluxbox Startup File
The Fluxbox startup file located at ~/.fluxbox/startup. This is where you can add programs to start upon entering Fluxbox. Simply add an entry, or comment out, anything you would like to use. Here is my startup file for comparison and ideas.

Copy and paste what you want, or replace yours with this one as it is user independant.

# fluxbox startup-script:
#
## Lines starting with a '#' are ignored.
# fbsetbg -f ~/pictures/wallpapers/sidux.png
## This sets a black background
#/usr/bin/fbsetroot -solid black
# This shows the fluxbox-splash-screen
# fbsetbg -C /usr/share/fluxbox/splash.jpg
# Other examples. Check man xset for details.
#
# Turn off beeps:
# xset -b
#
# Increase the keyboard repeat-rate:
# xset r rate 195 35
#
# Your own fonts-dir:
# xset +fp "~/.fonts"
#
# Your favourite mouse cursor:
# xsetroot -cursor_name right_ptr
#
# Change your keymap:
# xmodmap "~/.Xmodmap"
# Applications you want to run with fluxbox.
# MAKE SURE THAT APPS THAT KEEP RUNNING HAVE AN ''&'' AT THE END.

########### START FLUXBOX! ###########

# And last but not least we start fluxbox.
# Because it is the last app you have to run it with ”exec” before it.
exec /usr/bin/fluxbox
# or if you want to keep a log:
# exec /usr/bin/fluxbox -log “~/.fluxbox/log”

    1. There is a screenshot of my desktop on the first page about fluxbox, and all of the screen shots are of my personal desktop as it is used. All of this is a fee years old, though still relevant and useful. Hope you enjoyed my guides.
