    Standard disclaimer applies.
    While I only glanced at the above guide I did not try it out.
    It would be nice if those who wish do try it and report there findings here for others who may wish to try it out.
    Either way kkkyle thanks for sharing this with others.

    Tried and tested! Great guide, quick and easy and well explained for those who don't just want to install it but want to know what they are doing at the same time.

    Its a pity the bundled FluxBox themes aren't that exciting. Any chance of getting the fluxbox theme that was used for Backtrack 3? It was really awesome.

    Just so anyone who does this tutorial is clear, the fluxbox menu will NOT update when you install and uninstall packages. You will have to manually edit it every time you add a new program you want to access from the fluxbox menu.

    when is .fluxbox created? I don't have one of those.

    root@bt:~# find / -name .fluxbox
    root@bt:~# find / -name fluxbox
    /etc/X11/fluxbox
    /etc/menu-methods/fluxbox
    /usr/share/doc/fluxbox
    /usr/share/fluxbox
    /usr/share/menu/fluxbox
    /usr/bin/fluxbox

    It should be created in your home directory so ~/.fluxbox/

    So if you boot up backtrack, login and type
    Code:
    cd .fluxbox
    you should be sorted.

    It holds all the fluxbox information as far as I am aware and is created during the install process.

    I have never used the find command but doing
    Code:
    find .fluxbox
    worked fine for me showing the directory (although not its full path) and the subdirectories it contains.

    Hope this helps!
