View Full Version : [ubuntu] fluxbox not showing root (right click) menu
April 22nd, 2008, 08:10 PM
i have ubuntu gutsy installed on my notebook. i wanted to try fluxbox, so i typed
sudo aptitude install fluxbox
and it installed fluxbox & some dependant library. when at the logging screen, i can choose the fluxbox session.
the problem is, when i log in to the fluxbox, i cannot access the Root (right click) Menu.
any advices on how to get in? :)
thx in advance.

Can you post the contents of your ~/.fluxbox/keys file? In my experience, that is most often the issue with things like this.

Run this command in terminal:

Alternately, you could just CTRL-ALT-F1 to bail out to a command-line and enter it there, I suppose. You'd need to restart your Fluxbox session to make it take effect, though.
