    Nice! I've not tried that one before. I can get rid of all the XFCE clutter installed with Thunar now

    Add the gtk-theme-switch to ~/.fluxbox/startup like this:

    Code:
    gtk-theme-switch2 /path/to/gtk/theme/folder/eg/MurrinaGraphiteGentle/ &
    And because gtk-theme-switch will take control on your .gtkrc-2.0, you have to create a ~/.gtkrc-2.0.mine file and add the line: gtk-icon-theme-name = "Tango" (or whatever icon set you want) to change the icons. Works for Thunar and PCManFM

    I actually don't use gtk-themeswitch, I just created a gtkrc-2.0 file with my theme details and it's all good. Saves a few more resources, too

    in my case, it reads
    Code:
    gtk-font-name = "Bitstream Vera Sans 7"
    gtk-theme-name = "Human-Graphite"
    gtk-icon-theme-name = "nuoveXT-1.6"
    and works perfectly for all GTK2 apps.

    I have to add a disclaimer regarding PCManFM. I've done it elsewhere, but it's better whenever someone new finds PCManFM. Be careful with the deletion of files, make sure you have files selected when you have to delete something, otherwise it'll delete all contents of your folder and the folder itself.

    Yep, I suppose it's a bug, but it's easily avoidable. Just be careful! Other than that it works perfectly, and the tabs are really handy. (even though I use Fluxbox's auto-tabs, too)

I also use xcal a very simple scheduler. i try and use only very light applications, things that are very small and fast, they may not look fancy, but they get the job done and doesn't make me wait for it to load. I try and use what ever's built in if i can, things like xcalc that's part of xorg, there's also a clock, calendar, text editor already installed on every ones system, they may not look good but they are light.

    oop's forgot to finish that note.: my mp3 player can be started and will continue to play when i close it, i can start it again to stop the music or switch to a different folder. time for sleep

    thanks, kerry. I've used xpad in the past, but I don't think I'll use xcal. But thanks to you I also discovered xcalc. Now I don't have to install the gnome calculator.
