Dear dragonfly team,
I enable Fluxbox 1.1.1 from a Dell Laptop d✈fly 2.4.1 regularly wikiing
welcoming your instructions how to enable more apps and browsers e.g.
firefox. The best browser starting is links-graphics, konquerer and more
also start, still many apps appear in the manus registering as installed and
don't start. Hence probably path issue. pidgin IM does start, gimp won't,
igoo won't, might be random or config the thing. If doable, please inform
whether apps in menu are supposed to start the program or path to path
configuration. Starting a root gui, gnome starts OK and not mozilla. My goal
is migrating my dev environment.
Thanks & regards
When encountering dodgy behaviour with X Window System apps, try calling their
binary name from a terminal window instead of the menu. Then slide the app off
coverage of that terminal window (if one even opens at all).
error info will be there (missing libs et al) that would not be as easily seen
if started with a menu click, and may or may not be hitting one or more logs...
Doesn't FIX the problem, but may help ID the cause.
