    Fluxbox on Ubuntu


    I have just installed fluxbox 0.9.13 on my box (ubuntu 5.10 breezy badger) but it has only gnome (and failsafe gnome) in its session choosing menu which is availabe at login time. How do I get over this problem?

    Thanks in advance

    I found this. The second bullet may be what you need but i'm not sure i've not done it.

    Got Ubuntu running fluxbox desktop manager instead of gnome:

    * install fluxbox via dselect or apt:

    sudo apt-get install fluxbox

    * edit ~/.xsession and add the following:

    exec /usr/bin/fluxbox
