    How to start fluxbox without loading unnecessary stuff?


    If one installs fluxbox in kubuntu, it will be load through KDM, and aparently a few other KDE-related stuff will be load on memory as well.

    How this could be avoided? I do not even know how to start fluxbox from the console login (which I think would free the memory at least of KDM)... it says something related to "could not connect to X server" or whatever... (if I type only "fluxbox" and enter) and "startx" starts XFCE.

    I don't use a display manager at all and start fluxbox from the .xinitrc file with:

    Code:
    exec fluxbox
