    Help with fluxbox

    Gotta problem.

    Installed a new icon set but it appears to have toasted fluxbox's usability. Most of it's configuration has disappeared.

    Uninstalled the beast together with associated apps - rox-libs etc.

    Reinstalled rox and rox-libs. Ended up with only about 7 mime types which wasn't much cop when trying to set run action for apps/files. It also won't read the icon sets which I put into ~/.icons or ~/Choices.

    Used mime-editor to have a look at system wide mime types and there's more types than you can shake a stick at, but Rox seems to be reading this list of about 7 from somewhere. Don't know where though.

    Any advice welcome

    Is this having an effect on any of the other DE's? Does fluxbox use a .fluxbox file in ~/ that it might be drawing directions from to do this? How does fluxbox run as root? These are the only questions I can think to ask. Sorry I couldn't help more...
