A while ago, I posted here about Fluxbox on Debian Linux. Fluxbox is a window manager or graphical user interface for Linux and Unix environments running X.
Thursday night, I gave a presentation on Fluxbox at my local LUG. You can download a PDF of the handout here.
The handout is not a stand-alone document; it was written to accompany the presentation and the accompanying hands-on demonstration, but it can give you an idea of some of the things you can do with Fluxbox.
At the end of the document are links to sources of detailed information about Fluxbox.
I have just installed VirtualBox on one of my Slackware computers. I should have fun testing stuff on that and letting you all know what I find out.
