…so – I am glad to share with you the very nice (to me) news:

I became officially a part of Fluxbuntu Documentation Team


I hope to contribute a bit to the Fluxbuntu Wiki… And – no – I am not a kind of “fan-boy” LOL

In fact I “play” with more than one distro (for now – Fluxbuntu and Zenwalk)

And – I just want to help the projects, which, I believe, can change a bit the future of f.i. my son…

Have as nice day as me,

…this is a collection of the Fluxbox Howto’es by bodhi.zazen. IMHO this ones are the best on the subject of Fluxbox 🙂

This below was posted originally on Fluxbuntu Forum:

“…and as to keyboard – your keyboard is as well supported as on Ubuntu – you will just have to manually edit your xorg.conf file:

Simply add your languages shortcuts to the line describing your keyboard.

Mine looks like this:

Option “XkbLayout” “no,pl”

Yours should probably look as follows

Option “XkbLayout” “de,fr”

If you would like to have keyboard switch try following solution.

Open the file /home/<yourusername>/.fluxbox/menu

Then edit the file adding following lines:


[submenu] (Keyboards)
[exec] (de) {setxkbmap de}
[exec] (fr) {setxkbmap fr}

IMPORTANT: Check, please, the shortcuts for your keyboard layout firstly – I was just guessing that de=German and fr=French 😉Wink

Anyway: in this way you will be able to change the layout of your keyboard from the menu.

It should look similiar to this (this is from my computer with Polish and Norwegian layouts 🙂 ):

I hope it will help a bit,


….hmmm my first trial to write Fluxbox mini-howto…

I was experimenting a bit lately and installed new distro’es – OK, let’s say “nearly new” 😉

1. First is Fluxbuntu – as Linux fans already know it it is a derivative of Ubuntu. BUT – as I found out – MUCH QUICKER, LIGHTER and – much easier to install than the “big U/K/Xubuntu brothers and sisters”. It was the first Ubuntu I managed to install with graphical installer…Taking into account that Fluxbuntu is under heavy development and the version installed by me is pre-released one I think it will be a GREAT DISTRO!

2. Second one is the newest Zenwalk 4.0 – and what can I say? I tried Zenwalk few times in the past – beginning from version 2.8 – this time the distro seems to work even FASTER! The nicest thing here is that EVERYTHING is working out of the box – at least for the kind of user like me – rather average one ;). What I also like a lot about especially this version of Zenwalk is THE LOOK and FEEL of it – fantastic graphic work. What’s more – the look does not affect the efficiency – computer is running as smooth with and without “special” effects 🙂 (built-in composite in XFCE and Fluxbox) and – as the fan of Fluxbox – I immediately installed it – nice thing here is that Fluxbox is the newest, pre-released version – much better than the older one 😉 Shortly speaking from now on my distro’es of choice are Zenwalk and Fluxbox – both installed side by side on the separate partitions of my desktop and laptop. And – NO! – I am not a geek…LOL…not at all! I am very average computer user “playing” with Linux distro’es for a 1/2 year now – you see – it’s possible! Thanks to the developers of such Linux distro’es as Fluxbox and Zenwalk🙂

Back to the subject of the entry – I decided today to “create” another blog – this time devoted fully to “tami’s adventures in Linux Land” in other words – to small howto’es and tips for persons as me – not very “tech-savvy” but wanting their computers to work without the glitch to be able to use them!

So – here it is! 😉

Many kind and friendly greetings to all from,




Hello, Time :)
