SalixOS Fluxbox Tips

Fluxbox autoupdating menus
One thing i think Fluxbox is missing is autoupdating menus, so i wrote flux-menu (flux-menu-0.2-noarch-1ibka.txz).
To have the menu autoupdated install flux-menu-0.2-noarch-1ibka.txz and add the folowing to ~/.fluxbox/startup
[ -x /usr/bin/flux-menud ] && flux-menud &
and your menu will be updated when you install or remove applications.
How to install a Slackware package.
Open a terminal and go to the directory where you saved the file.
type su and press Enter, then type the following:
spkg -i flux-menu-0.2-noarch-1ibka.txz
PCManFM
Another thing that is a bit anoying is when you move, delete or create a new fil in PCManFM there is a delay before you se the change in PCManFM, this can be fixed by doing the folowing in:
/etc/gamin/gaminrc
change the row fsset ext4 poll 15 to fsset ext4 kernel 15 (if you ar using ext4 filesystem).
