How do you connect to the internet? Place the command in one of two places.
There should be a .xinitrc file in /root or /home/username.

You can also use a script named "startup" which should be in /root/.fluxbox or /home/username/.fluxbox

Just edit either /root/.fluxbox/startup or /root/.xinitrc to start any apps you want

heres example /root/.fluxbox/startup

#!/bin/sh
#
# fluxbox startup-script:
#
# Lines starting with a '#' are ignored.

# Change your keymap:
xmodmap "/root/.Xmodmap"

# Applications you want to run with fluxbox.
# MAKE SURE THAT APPS THAT KEEP RUNNING HAVE AN ''&'' AT THE END.
#
# unclutter -idle 2 &
# wmnd &
# wmsmixer -w &
# idesk &

# And last but not least we start fluxbox.
# Because it is the last app you have to run it with ''exec'' before it.

exec fluxbox
# or if you want to keep a log:
# exec fluxbox -log "/root/.fluxbox/log"

does that help??

if you are able to connect from a gnome session, for fluxbox add

nm-applet &

to ~/.fluxbox/startup ...which will cause network manager to fire up @ startup
