Description Robert Hamrick 2011-10-21 19:45:38 UTC
Created attachment 529558 [details]
simple fluxbox.desktop for /usr/share/applications

Description of problem:

It'd be useful to be able to use fluxbox as a window manager in the gnome environment just by specifying "fluxbox" as the value for the gconf attribute /desktop/gnome/session/required_components/windowmanager (instead of "metacity").

It looks like all that's needed for this on the package side is a simple fluxbox.desktop file in /usr/share/applications.

Currently, the fluxbox rpm installs a fluxbox.desktop file in /usr/share/xsessions, but not /usr/share/applications.  It may be possible to use the same file in both locations.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

I'm looking at fluxbox-1.1.1-5.el6.x86_64 on rhel 6.1 workstation.

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. set gconf attribute /desktop/gnome/session/required_components/windowmanager to "fluxbox"
2. start gnome session
Actual results:

fluxbox isn't the window manager

Expected results:

fluxbox is window manager
