It seems as DSL at boottime looks for myDSL apps and myDSL optional apps two times and the result is duplicated in the menu. I discovered this on dsl-4.1RC3-embedded. Hope it's of any use. By the way what rootCommand is necessary to make a fluxbox style also change the background? In RC2 xsri worked well but not in RC3.
Thanks for all and have fun,
meo, please post the output of 'showbootcodes' so I can try to duplicate.
There was no change in the use of xsri from RC2 to RC3. The use of xsri in the window manager include file is for window manager independence. If you only use one particular window manger then you can always choose to use its specific implementation thus giving it control of the background. As I have previously discussed there are several systems competing for control of the background, dfm, the window manager, and .xinitrc. It is your choice to grant control to any one of these systems, afterall all of them are in your home directory for you to edit. If I had the option to use an integrated desktop then this would not be an issue. If I had to support only one window manager, then it would be less of an issue. The rootCommand in fluxbox itself has two places, one in the .init file the other in the particular style. The rootCommand in fluxbox does nothing more than to call xsri, actually is accepts many command but utilimately xsri does the work.
Since I am faced with supporting two included window managers and open for many others, the tool to set the background color or wallpaper image will of course write to the common supported area; the window manager include file.
