[TriLUG] xinitrc questions

Typo, I'm not backgrounding fluxbox. However, the 2 apps I have listed do
not have -w type switches. Once I'm in my desktop, I can call them from a
terminal and b/g them and they work fine. Just trying to automate.

Check the apps to see if they take a "withdrawn" or "slit" switch (in my
experience most likely -w for blackbox-compatible apps).
Also, in my experience, you shouldn't need to background Fluxbox (unless
you're calling this from a display manager?) since it appears to be the last
app in your ~/.xinitrc ...
I could be wrong, but that's how an app is similarly configured here on
