How to personalize antix

#1 Post by Dernafrest404 » Tue Sep 11, 2018 8:52 am

Hello I'm new in this forum and I just installed antix for almost a month but I do not understand how to customize my desktop with space-fluxbox.
I would like to change the lower bar theme and also change icon theme but I see that it is not as ubuntu that just create a folder and the theme changes.
can someone give me some guidelines?
also I can not even change the colors of text and other elements because lxsession is not the manager, how can I set it as default handler?
sorry for my bad english

for the icons, you can change the theme in the Control Center - Customize Look and Feel.

as for the bottom bar...the theme there is controlled by the fluxbox themes. the themes are select-able in the system menu under fluxbox settings -> themes.

This is a old video but should give you an idea on how to get started.

Is it possible to put application shortcuts (& icons) on the desktop (or for that matter the bottom panel) in Fluxbox?
[As opposed to right clicking on the desktop and scrolling through the menus?]

you can put them on the desktop, but not on the fluxbox panel. I usually just add stuff to the "personal" menu via the menu-manager in the control center.
