^ thanks. There's nothing at all wrong with fluxbox, it's just a little overexposed and abused by some other distros. If you want to see some awesome fluxbox scrots, look up ElderV.LaCoste's work at the crunchbang forum. His systems are a little busy for my taste, but he knows what he's doing.

^ overexposed, that's the right word. And the reason I keep my hands off it, it's the dwm effect, you know ;)

The results of my Slackware installation with minimal WMs/CLI tools/no GTK/QT. It was really easy, actually. Now to pimp it out some...

^ Yes, and I really didn't bother to take notes or anything. Just eliminated all gtk and qt stuff as I went through the installation process, and so I have a nice, fast, clean Slackware system, in the old school style. Quite boring, really, but it needed to be done. Added Dillo for graphical browsing, and scrot, from SlackBuilds, and that's about it so far. Choice of fluxbox, twm, fvwm, and blackbox, or noX/tmux.

Nice choices. You just need something for viewing PDFs, and maybe imagemagick for converting stuff.

So, I needed to do something very easy today, so I spent some time playing with fluxbox.

^ I'm primarily interested in avoiding gtk and qt, more than sticking to a rigid no-X environment. Although I can get by just fine using the likes of mc or ranger for file management, I wanted to get a GUI fm for this setup, and xfe fits the bill nicely, as it doesn't require gtk or qt. Also learning to configure fluxbox, which I've not used much in the past. Next up will be blackbox.
