Sourcetrunk (Episode 028) : FluxBox

This episode will demonstrate great desktop functionality with Fluxbox, Urban Terror will be the best way to blow of steam and Exif will be the little command line extra.

I. System Tools : FluxBox
Fluxbox © is yet another windowmanager for X.
It’s based on the Blackbox 0.61.1 code. Fluxbox looks like blackbox and handles styles, colors, window placement and similar thing exactly like blackbox (100% theme/style compability).

So what’s the difference between fluxbox and blackbox then?
The answer is: LOTS!


II. Games : Urban Terror
Urban Terror could best be described as a Hollywood tactical shooter; it is realism based to a certain extent (environments/weapons/player models), but also goes by the motto “fun over realism” (fast gameplay and lots of action). This combination of reality and action results in a very unique, enjoyable and addictive game.


III. The little extra : Exif
* is a library written in pure C.
