startfluxbox - start a fluxbox session SYNOPSIS
startfluxbox DESCRIPTION
startfluxbox is a script which runs the file ~/.fluxbox/startup If it doesn't 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. AUTHORS

fbrun - display run dialog window SYNOPSIS
fbrun [options] DESCRIPTION
fbrun(1) is basically equivalent to the "Run..." dialog in other desktop environments. This means that it is an easy way to start a program that isn't contained in the menu (or needs a special set of parameters for this particular invocation). Pressing "Enter" will close the window and execute the command in your present $SHELL. Pressing "Esc" will close the window and does not execute anything. Another way fbrun can be useful is to be called from the menu with a preloaded command line that you can edit and then execute. An example might be sshing to a very long host name with lots of options of which one changes all the time. In this case, you could add an entry for fbrun to your menu that contains all the options and the host name. When you use said entry, you could edit the line as necessary and execute it. OPTIONS
-title title Set title -text text Text input -w width Window width in pixels -h height Window height in pixels -display display Display name, defaults to $DISPLAY -pos x y Window position in pixels -nearmouse Position the window under the mouse cursor -fg color Foreground text color.
