specifications

Fluxspace blends Fluxbox's window management with new desktop management capabilities. The project leverages existing components and the power of Python to help build a flexible desktop environment around Fluxbox and other lightweight window managers.

Here are some key features of "Fluxspace":

Add per-workspace desktop icons and panels to Fluxbox by integrating tools like Rox Filer and Idesk.
Decorate each workspace with different wallpaper.
Manage your startup applications.
Automatically start and stop applets as you enter and leave workspaces, allowing each workspace to have its own unique tools and dockapps.

Requirements:

Python (tested with version 2.2)
Imlib2
Fluxbox or other Blackbox derivative. Note that only Fluxbox has been tested to any great extent.
Rox Filer - if you want to use the optional "rox" module
Idesk - if you want to use the optional "idesk" module

What's New in This Release:
