Flexible for a Fluxbox? – Lightweight X Window Manager

Filed under
Fluxbox
HowTos

One of the many great things about using UNIX or a UNIX-like operating system is the ability to tailor your environment to your liking. If you want a full-fledged GUI with all the bells and whistles then Gnome, KDE, or LXDE are probably for you.

But, if you want something less resource intensive that offers a greater degree of control then Fluxbox Window Manager is what you’re looking for.

Introduction to Fluxbox

Fluxbox Window Manager was forked from Blackbox 0.61.1 and is written in C++. It is a lightweight window manager for X11 that uses floating windows (as opposed to tiling like Xmonad or awesome). Some of Fluxbox’s features include the slit, toolbar, system tray, tabbed windows, the apps file, the keys file, and a fully customizable root menu. It stores its configuration files in ~/.fluxbox/.

On Linux, Google Chrome is now the top web browser, and it is the best way to experience Adobe Flash content too (if you still need it). Installing Google Chrome on the Linux-based operating system is not totally straightforward. This is unfortunate, as the search-giant's web browser is an important part of having an overall quality experience on Ubuntu. Don't worry, however, as we will help you to both install the wonderful Google Chrome and uninstall the disappointing Mozilla Firefox. Read more
