Read the whole thread: I give a walk through of my fix for the slowness issue and other tips.

See also:


The latest source code for fluxbox ( 0.9.14) fixes the issue on Hoary. You can get it here:


or direct link for a source tarball


If you use this later source version you don't need to do ./configure --disable-xmb

One hopes this will be fixed in the breezy version (I haven't tried the breezy deb as I'm still on hoary)
