well, i don't know who packaged that fluxbox, so i'm not sure. It could just be in the login menu.

If not, edit ~/.xinitrc and add the line:

Perhaps that will do it...

As for wine, I don't windoz, so i dunno.

ok, i use wine with blag so basically all you have to do is double-click your .exe's in nautilus. its that easy.

ok i got fluxbox and wine to work now :D

i just got one more question. how do you compile/run perl and shell scripts(i think they are shell end with .sh)

Shell & perl scripts don't need to be compiled. Here's a couple quick examples of how to do them.

Shell Script
Edit "" and make it look like this:

echo "yo! bush sucks"

Then run:
chmod +x

The "chmod" makes it executable (you could alternatively run it like "sh").

Same story for perl, but the first line is different. Edit
print "ashcroft sucks too"

chmod +x

You don't need the ".sh" or the ".pl" at the end--it could read ".exe" ".whatever"--linux doesn't really care about extensions.
