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:
fluxbox

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.

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 "somescript.sh" and make it look like this:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
echo "yo! bush sucks"


Then run:
Code:
chmod +x somescript.sh
somescript.sh


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

perl
===
Same story for perl, but the first line is different. Edit someperl.pl:
Code:
#!/usr/bin/perl
print "ashcroft sucks too"


Then...
Code:
chmod +x someperl.pl
someperl.pl


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