linux default iconDeBox Publisher's description

DeBox is a window manager that tries to offer a free new way to make a desktop on Debian-based operating systems, such as Ubuntu.

DeBox desktop environment is a new way to make a desktop for the Debian based O.S. DeBox it is not designed to be over-powerful but to be usable and slim enough, and keep the resource usage low for your favorite programs. Different from the majority of desktop environments, it does not tightly integrate every component but use external programs following the unix spirit of tiny single-task tools. So DeBox it's just a mix of various Linux programs (Adeskbar, Openbox, Pcman File manager and tint2) that create a new lightweight, fast and i think beautiful desktop environment. And is GPL..

It includes:

- Avant Window Navigator
- Openbox
- PcMan File Manager

The basic file is the /usr/bin/DeBoX that handle every aspect of this desktop. So once you install it you have a dock that you can put every application that you need (just go to /usr/share/applications and then drag and drop the application in your dock) a task bar, a monitoring system and a desktop based to the pcmanfm.
If you chose the logout awn applet remember to put the line “pkill -u < your username here >” at the preferences menu (right click on the icon).
