I'm using Fedora 12, and the Fluxbox 1.1.1-5 that comes with it.
It's plain X, using Slim as a login manager, and launching fluxbox via
exec startfluxbox at the end of my .xinitrc . Running as a normal,
Intermittently at startup, applications that are automatically started
.fluxbox/startup file are obscured by the grey fluxbox wallpaper
background. Or at least I think that's what is obscuring them.
The bottom 3/4 of the screen is the same colour grey as the fluxbox
background and clicking on the part of the apps that I can see does not
result in them appearing over fluxbox.
Killing the apps, and restarting them DOES result in them appearing over
I've attached the xwininfo result from clicking on this grey area.
I've tried the two different approachs to launching fluxbox in the wiki
startup page - ie launch fluxbox last, or launch fluxbox first then
waitpid for it at the end of the script. Both produce the same result.
thanks for your help,
