Talking Windowmanager Fluxbox

Fluxbox is yet another windowmanager for X. I compiled it.
Dreams came true: Easy switching between open programs is possible.
Screenshots are attached showing my iLiad session running Contentlister, 2 mrxvt windows, XBoard, & ipdf.
When I click on a icon in the fluxbox bar this app get's in front.
I'm so proud of this new effort. This is so sexy. I have the feeling I own a real Linux PDA.
I'm so damn studpid. I compiled fluxbox is December, but I checked whether it is working today.

[EDIT 02/15/08] Fluxbox installer is attached.
[EDIT 02/16/08] The usage of hacked libX11 is not very clever. In Contentlister we get first refeshes by hacked libX11, then a full-screen-refresh.

When you click with stylus on the area titled as "two" [it's the name of the current workspace] you will get the options menu of the toolbar [positon, clock setttings etc.].
to-do-list:
# click on toolbar -> small screen refresh
# simulation of 3rd mouse-click for action on titlebar [kill window, send to a workspace etc.]
etc..
