Fluxbox is a light-weight and fast window manager. Regardless of the window managers that you have selected to install, Fluxbox is always available as an option in the login menu.

Figure 5.6a shows a screenshot of Fluxbox running on PC-BSD. In this example, the user has launched the Application menu by right-clicking on the desktop.

The Fluxconf PBI, available in AppCafe®, provides the following graphical menus:

  • fluxbare: provides a tiny toolbar allowing you to launch the different parts of the Fluxconf PBI
  • fluxconf: for managing window placement
  • fluxkeys: for defining and managing keyboard shortcuts
  • fluxmenu: for adding or removing entries from the main Fluxbox menu


The Features page of the Fluxbox website lists the available configuration files and links to instructions for getting the most out of Fluxbox.
