I don't know if this is a Fluxbox issue or not, but I downloaded the .3.19 linux version onto my new Linux Mint 9 Fluxbox setup and started it.  I know it's running, I think that it's downloading the blockchain, but it does not produce a window.  Nor is there a process tile in the dock bar.  It's causing some serious 'thrashing', and I don't know if it's going to attempt to generate against my will when it's done with the blockchain.  It's bogged down my system so much it's now almost as slow at a Windoze 7 machine.  Anyone else experience this?

This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

Fluxbox is quite an exotic window manager.

Have you tried with an other WM ?  xfce or Gnome for instance ?

I have not.  This is my first attempt at Fluxbox, but that is because I prefer Blackbox 0.65.x.  Unfortunately, there is no more maintance of blackbox, and I really don't have the time to tweak everything anymore.  I used to use Blackbox on Gentoo, starting back around 1997 on a 486-66.  First those silly people at the phone company tried to tell me that anything slower than a P166 couldn't connect to their ADSL, and later others told me that it was impossible to play episodes of Stargate-SG1 on a 486.  Not with Gnome or KDE running on anything, but Blackbox on Gentoo, and nothing else running, I sure as hell could.  This computer is new to me, and is probably about four years old, but is still the fastest hardware that has ever entered my home.  It could barely move with Windoze XP running on it, but that didn't survive long in my home.

Well, for what it worths, I confirm that bitcoin doesn't show any window on Fluxbox.  I've just tried.


Personnaly I use "awesome" as a window manager.  It is about as cool as Fluxbox.
