Fluxbox1.3.0 is released!

Fluxbox is a stacking window manager for the X Window System, Fluxbox 1.3 has arrived! A long long long time is over, and we finally decided to make a release.

What’s New :

  • Added support for bidirectional text, #2801836.
  • Allow to override ‘Focus New Windows’ via .fluxbox/apps
  • New actions:
    • ActivateTab
    • ArrangeWindowsVertical
  • New ‘MoveN’ and ‘ClickN’ action support for keys file
  • New focus model ‘StrictMouseFocus’. This will affect focus when closing, moving, lowering windows, changing desktops, etc, whereas the ‘MouseFocus’ model will only change focus when you move the mouse.
  • New “background: unset” property for use in overlays.
  • Allowing relative paths for background images in style files.
  • Allowing matching screen number in ClientPattern.
  • Removed rootcommand from init, as fbsetbg is run automatically nowadays.
  • Removed line style resources from init file.

Install and use Fluxbox in Ubuntu:

Open terminal type the following:

First open the source.list file:

edit   /etc/apt/source.list 

and add

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/paultag/fluxbox/ubuntu maverick main

Save and exit

Now in the terminal type :

sudo apt-get update -y
