NAME

startfluxbox - start a fluxbox session

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

startfluxbox

DESCRIPTION

startfluxbox is a script which runs the file ~/.fluxbox/startup If it doesn\(cqt exist it will be generated.

startfluxbox should be started from your ~/.xinitrc if you use startx, or ~/.xsession if you run a display manager, like xdm.

FILES

~/.fluxbox/startup

This file contains all commands that should be executed before fluxbox is started. The initial file contains helpful comments for beginners. It also starts fluxbox.

EXAMPLES

The default ~/.fluxbox/startup is as follows:

#!/bin/sh
#
# fluxbox startup-script:
#
# Lines starting with a # are ignored.

# Change your keymap: xmodmap "$HOME/.Xmodmap"

# 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 &

# And last but not least we start fluxbox. # Because it is the last app you have to run it with exec before it.

exec fluxbox # or if you want to keep a log: # exec fluxbox -log "$fluxdir/log"

If you need to start applications after fluxbox, you can change the exec fluxbox line above to something like this:

exec fluxbox &
fbpid=$!

sleep 1 { xsetroot -cursor_name left_ptr -fg white -bg black & ipager & gkrellm2 & } &

wait $fbpid

So xsetroot, ipager, and gkrellm2 will all be started after fluxbox, after giving fluxbox 1 second to startup.

For more details on what else you can do in this script, see sh(1), or the documentation for your shell.
