Hello Everyone,

I have complied fluxbox-1.3.7 with imlib2 enabled for Precise.

For people who are new to puppy and linux Fluxbox is a desktop and window mgr. With many menu and window styles one can choose from that come with this pet and ones you can get on line.

You can get more styles here: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=47029

OK so you don't tell me what Fluxbox is .
I had a look at it and turns out its a window manager
OK so how can I start it ?
I get this when I try
Code:
Failed to read: session.screen0.windowPlacement
Setting default value
BScreen::BScreen: an error occured while querying the X server.
   another window manager already running on display :0
Error: Couldn't find screens to manage.
Make sure you don't have another window manager running.

Well I do of course but I am not going to stop it unless I can see what I am going to start and how to start it.

I thought to muck around and d/l the above two files and installed them .
Then I found processes in the menu and ended the process for JWM
Then in the depth of darkness I typed "xwindows fluxbox " and up it came

For info
http://fluxbox.org/

I like it and have been using it all night but have to note at shutdown all the buttons seem to work except "Shutdown"
II have to use reboot and catch it with the switch
