Post Request for Fluxbox 1.3.2
Would it be possible to get Fluxbox 1.3.2 added to the repository? Is it available somewhere I don't know about? I installed the testing repo but no luck there. I am using Mepis 11.0. The link to the Fluxbox tarball here: http://fluxbox.org/download/

Fluxbox 1.3.2 is available from the Debian squeeze-backports repo: http://packages.debian.org/search?suite=squeeze-backports&searchon=names&keywords=fluxbox

There are instructions here: http://backports-master.debian.org/Instructions/ on how to add the squeeze-backports repo and use it.

Thank you very much!

No matter how many times I do some things I can't always remember what or how I did a particular thing so here is what I did and maybe someone else might find it useful too.

Open the following file as Root:

/etc/apt/sources.list

Add this line at the bottom: deb http://backports.debian.org/debian-backports/ squeeze-backports main

Open a terminal and su to root then type the following:

apt-get -t squeeze-backports install fluxbox 1.3.2

Just FYI the sudo is not needed if you are root. Plus you have to setup sudo if you want to use it in Mepis.

Or, download and install Anti X.

antiX has a different selection of software to use.
