windows in fluxbox wont move

Post by pseudo_opcode »

hi everyone.
i just installed ummm... linux actually its a highly customised version...but basically its derived from damn small linux and the fluxbox is also same which i guess is 0.9.12 (it doesnt support pixmaps for sure..).
now the problem is i cant resize the windows and cant move them.. i can only maximize and minimize it, i even tried right clicking on it and changing the x, y coordinates in the properties but still it wont work...

anyone has any idea about how to get the damn thing moving...??

I found this:

Code: Select all

Alt-leftmouse-drag 	 move the window around by dragging any part of the window
Alt-rightmouse-drag 	resize the window by dragging any part of the window.
check here for fluxbox documentation:
http://fluxbox.sourceforge.net/docbook.php

:wink:

man i really appreciate the help but tried this already..it still doesnt work.. it would just stay there.. i think i have to find some time and look at the code.. maybe i can find the prob

edit:anyway i found a way to configure it in such a way that when it starts i can predetermine the position and place the window as i wish.. but still i cant move it.. it makes me feel handicapped! :x

i even tried getting help from the www.damnsmalllinux.org forums even after registering and activation i still dont have permission to post.. what the....
