I usually just throw in "exec fluxbox" into my ~/.xinitrc

~ refers to your home directory. So if you're logged in as joe, if you typed in nano -w ~/.xinitrc it would give you nano -w /home/joe/.xinitrc.

Thanks a lot. Flux only takes like 20 minutes to emerge :o


Crazyness after seeing KDE take over 20 hours.


Ill be testing this out right after mozilla finishes emerging. I hope it works.
