Wow, looks fantastic Oberon!

This is the awesome thing about Manjaro. Many distros claim to "support" different desktop environments by virtue of including them in their package repos. Manjaro, on the other hand, supports just about every desktop *and* window manager under the sun, and they all get first-class treatment with meticulously crafted spins like this one. It's *so nice* to see this.

this is harsh criticism.

well .. bearing in mind .. each critic and reviewer will have their own preferences and experience that will colour their judgements and are only a guide... add differing equipment ... add possibilities they are 'paid' shills (recalling some media critics barely use or attend things they critique,basing it on hearsay or totally making it up) ...
The simple way ... is experience it .. and with regards to a distribution ... accept not every application will dance to your tune without some tweaking on your part (it has the versatility) ... ive yet to find a Linux distribution that was a 100% disaster ... just the user  ;)

Ok. All 4 ISOs are replaced now and everything, including "restore original menu" should be working now ::)

Hi there Oberon!

I posted a video on the new Fluxbox.
Please check it out when you have time.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GoMdQlvtXhk

I am still having problems with windows opening in the top left corner with no way to minimize or move them. I have to right click the dock icon and select close.

Most other issues have been resolved. Funny, when I log out and back in, the windows open normally. But if I open an app such as Guvcview, Kazam, Synapse, the problem reappears and cannot be resolved without logging out and back in.

Let me know if you need any other info.
Be glad to help you test.

Thanks!
Len

Thank you Len! :) looking forward to watch your new video later!
The problem of the missing window borders I have only experienced in virtual box sofar, and actually only with lxterminal. The reason I don't know...  :-\
In any case as an 'emergency' way to move those windows you can hold down the <Alt> key ... :P

Hey Oberon :)
I uninstalled Synapse and problem remains.
Interestingly, it reappears once I start Guvcview.
Pressing the Alt key still will not allow the windows to move. They also remain on top hiding other windows.
I installed Terminator to see if it would behave ok but it has the same problem as LXterminal.
Very strange.
BTW, this is not a virtual box install. It is on a very plain vanilla computer, i3 intel processor, onboard intel graphics and sounds, 8 gig Ram.
I will use Nitrogen as a workaround for the wallpaper issue.

Thanks for your help!
Len

;) It's not a workaround, it's just the name of the app that is doing the job! :) You can just create a .desktop file - just see how the other ones in that folder look like and make one like that for nitrogen. Like that the menu will find it I think.

I am reworking the menu - not happy with it, yet ... ;) My plan is to provide the final solution via package so people won't have to reinstall. :)

Strange that problem with the terminal... Seems to be connected to those video apps you are using - maybe to do with your GPU in connection with that - I don't know, hmmm.

Ok. I have just tried it and it works like that:
Create a textfile called /usr/share/applications/nitrogen.desktop
and copy this into the file:
Code: [Select]
[Desktop Entry]
Exec=nitrogen
Icon=nitrogen
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=Settings;DesktopSettings;
StartupNotify=true
Name=Wallpaper Changer
GenericName=Nitrogen

When you regenerate the menu now, you will find "Wallpaper Changer" at the end of System > Settings 8)
