bugs

chitchat
Your conversation is perfect for #fluxbox-chitchat like our fine /topic suggests. Please move there for off topic discussion like "which distro is the best" "whats your fav window manager" etc. etc... or talking about networking issues and network manager, whats the best laptop, hows the weather up there...

ciaranm
ciaranm is evil !! >:| and the gentoo-dev responsible for the fluxbox-ebuilds

cigarettes
smoking is forbidden in #fluxbox

coffee
do you want some, <who>?<=or=><reply> drink tea, its healthier, <who>!

color
http://www.colorschemer.com/online.html

color codes
for supported human-readable color codes, check /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb.txt

compiz
compiz and fluxbox are both window managers, and X only allows one window manager at any time, so they cannot be used together. For more information, see http://fluxbox-wiki.org/index.php/Faqs#Can_I_use_fluxbox_or_parts_of_it_with_XGL.2FCompiz.2FBeryl.3F

composite
the new xorg6.8 supports eyecandy, uberfancy composite extension .. which is marked as experimental. so dont complain if it breaks some things (eg slit, layers, dockapps ..). disable it, problems should disappear. ignore this advice ... well, now you are on your own. :)

conky
Conky is an advanced, highly configurable system monitor for X http://conky.sf.net

coredump

debug

deco
to get decorationless windows add this line to your ~/.fluxbox/keys: "mod1 t :toggledecor", reload the config and then press alt-t. for more permanent ways, see ,borderless

decomask
the (strange) looking number for deco in the apps-file is a binary mask, bits are for: titlebar, handle, border, iconify, minimise, close, menu, sticky, shade, tab, enabled. use a good calculator to enter a binary mask and get a hex-number which represents the state on wants.

decor

imagemagick
Imagemagick is a nice image manipulating app. You can get it from here: http://www.imagemagick.org/

imlib2
the lib you need to have when you want to use .png .jpg and otheir formats, inside of fluxbox (in the style or the menu). To get it you have to recompile fluxbox, and remember to ./configure --enable-imlib2 (or get a package that has it enabled). You can check if you already have with it `fluxbox -i` (if its not there at all, then you need a newer version of fluxbox).

import
The magic almighty "import" command is part of ImageMagick. To take a screenshot with it, try 'import -w root screen.jpg'.

in fluxbox
there is nothing in fluxbox -- that's the whole point; you will need to find those programs yourself, with the help of google

restart
if you have to restart fluxbox either hit the *restart* entry in the menu or do a 'pkill -HUP fluxbox'. in any case: fluxbox wont kill your apps and wont log you off.

rootCommand
the so called rootCommand is the way one can tell fluxbox what program to call the change to rootwindow aka background, either from the style-file or from the init-file.

rootmenu
new in fluxbox-0.9.4: to bind the rootmenu to a key add 'modifier key :rootmenu to ~/.fluxbox/keys. and no, it doesnt requiere a special compile-flag for enabling this feature, its a builtin :). keynavigation is possible either when the the rootmenu was openend by using keybindings or after clicking on the title of the menu when it was opened by using the mouse.

rootmenu keys
down: select menu item, left/right: go in/out from submenus, escape: close menu and return focus to windows, enter: run/execute/toggle menu item

round
to get rounded corners add something like "menu.roundCorners: TopLeft" to your style. Can also do window.roundCorners, plus TopRight, BottomLeft, BottomRight

round corners
round corners is a new feature from 0.9.4-fluxbox: usage of the shape-extension (x11) to blend out some parts of the corners -> results in round corners :) ask me about 'round corners syntax' and also about 'new themes'

round corners syntax
in stylefiles: 1) toolbar.shaped: true | false 2) (menu or window).roundcorners: topleft | topright | bottomleft | bottomright

to get your menus transparent, use a) fb 0.9.x, b) a wallpapersetter, that does the job right (find out more with fbsetbg -i) and 3) use the mouse, open rootmenu and click the alpha-value in the fluxbox-configure-submenu

transparent titlebar
grab latests cvs-snapshot and use window.alpha: value (0-255) in your stylefile to get transparent titlebars in fluxbox too.

tweak
if you have a card that can do it you can try adding `` option "renderaccel" "1" to the device section of your xorg.conf. you may get odd crashes though! also the slit may have odd colors.
