1. How to remove windows decorations? Set windows properties?

  1. Bind shortuct to action ToggleDecor,eg:
    Mod4 T :ToggleDecor And use it.

  2. To make the change permanent, right click on the window title bar and click:
    REMEBER->DECORATIONS
    Next time you start the program the decorations will be removed automatically. (If not quit fluxbox and edit ~/.fluxbox/apps file manually).
To remove decorations from eg. fbrun, edit ~/.fluxbox/apps and put:
[app] (fbrun)
[Deco] {NONE}
[end]


You can use REMEMBER menu to set & remember several window properities (Workspace, Dimensions, Position, Shaded, Tab, Decorations, Sticky, Layer).



2. How to make applications starting when Fluxbox starts?

Edit ~/.fluxbox/apps and put there something like this:

[startup] {xterm}
or to start it on screen 2 (NOT workspace 2)
[startup] (screen=2) {xterm}
A workspace is a virtual desktop that fluxbox provides. A screen is usually another monitor - it is configured as a separate Screen in your XF86Config.



3. How do I know window class name to use it inside apps file?

Run this command and click on the window:
xprop |awk '/WM_CLASS/{print $3 $4 $5}'
to get window class name.



4. SendToWorkspace and Workspace keys combinations don't work anymore.

Because the syntax of these commands has changed.
Edit your ~/.fluxbox/keys and change
Mod1 1:SendToWorkspace1 into Mod1 1:SendToWorkspace 1, etc.
The same goes for Workspace action.



5. Themes look ugly

There are new theme items with devel release. Check here for the list of valid theme items.



6. How to enable rounded corners?

Rounded corners come with style/theme. Check here for some styles which use it.



7. Does aLEczapKA use Eterm or aterm?

Aterm, becaue it's smaller and faster - how to customize it read here. (This was suggested on #fluxbox).



8. How to fix font size?

Change font-entry in your style to, eg: *.font: Verdana-7



9. What program to use to set backgrounds?

Use fbsetbg - new wallpaper-setter.



10. Toolbar is messed up

Edit ~/.fluxbox/init and add/edit this line: session.screen0.toolbar.height: 16
