non compos mentis

I ran all updates on my machine today, and it hosed my fluxbox menu, so I had to reconstruct it.
I had a back up…no problem.

It also hosed my gdm menu, so that, when logging in, I couldn’t log into fluxbox.
It kept going to KDE.
I had to go into /etc/X11 and do some surgery…
I got that squared away.

Something hosed my fluxbox slit, though, and I have not succeeded in amending that.
I log in, and my slit doesn’t come up.
I can start wmix by hand, and it comes up in the slit, but,
I can’t get gkrellm back in there.
I can start gkrellm, but it doesn’t go to the list (even with the -w option…it ignores that
option and starts up normally).

Got some nice new fluxbox themes.
I’ve mostly been making my own, because, when I first started using
fluxbox, most of those already available were butt-ugly…

I found some cool stuff while playing around in Synaptic, though.
The Songbird Media Player.
It’s pretty cool…useful for radio streams, anyway.

Allright…over and out…back to work…(yes, even on Sunday).
