    Fluxbox, xrender and applications


    HI,

    I have a couple of questions about fluxbox on arch


    1.)How should I enable xrender extension in my xorg.conf?
    xdpyinfo | grep RENDER returns xdpyinfo: unable to open display"".

    2)I install packages e.g pacman -S firefox but then how do I make them work in fluxbox? I tried to edit an existing entry in the fluxbox menu file to (firefox) {firefox} but it did not work. What am I missing?

    Thanks for any help

    Your Firefox entry in your fluxbox apps menu should look like this:

    Code:
    [exec] (firefox) {firefox}
    Make sure you are editing the entry in the hidden fluxbox folder found in your /home directory.
