Autostart in lxqt + fluxbox

Now day I start playing with fluxbox, which is light weight, yet surprisingly has excellent feature set. For one, it can remember window location  and  size.

The other window mangers that are capable of window remembering have their own downside:

  • KDE: It is indeed full featured but heavy weight. The other weird thing is it asks password for Calendar in Google Chrome whenever my session start, even I do not intent to use it.
  • Enlightenment: starting from 0.20, they dropped systray (Xembed) support. Basically that means the Network Manager and Input Method indicators are gone.

The fluxbox built-in panel (a.k.a. toolbar) has the basic feature sets which I can live with, but it would be better to have the volume control, battery status and popup calendar when I click on the clock.

First candidate is fbpanel, but it’s popup calendar is block by the panel itself.

Then I found lxqt-panel. It has good feature sets like memory graph. But it fail to find the launcher icons, and “logout” won’t logout you.

At last, I came out with use lxqt as session, but fluxbox as window manager. But the autostart did not seem to work. Luckily, you can use startfluxbox as window manager, and you can put whatever you want to autostart in ~/.fluxbox/startup.

Enjoy.
