Fluxbox startup file

Here is my startup file for comparison and ideas. Feel free to copy and paste anything that might work for you.

# fluxbox startup-script:
#
## Lines starting with a '#' are ignored.
# fbsetbg -f ~/pictures/wallpapers/sidux.png
## This sets a black background
#/usr/bin/fbsetroot -solid black
# This shows the fluxbox-splash-screen
# fbsetbg -C /usr/share/fluxbox/splash.jpg
# Other examples. Check man xset for details.
#
# Turn off beeps:
# xset -b
#
# Increase the keyboard repeat-rate:
# xset r rate 195 35
#
# Your own fonts-dir:
# xset +fp "~/.fonts"
#
# Your favourite mouse cursor:
# xsetroot -cursor_name right_ptr
#
# Change your keymap:
# xmodmap "~/.Xmodmap"
# Applications you want to run with fluxbox.
# MAKE SURE THAT APPS THAT KEEP RUNNING HAVE AN ''&'' AT THE END.

########### START FLUXBOX! ###########

### And last but not least we start fluxbox.
### Because it is the last app you have to run it with ''exec'' before it.

exec /usr/bin/fluxbox

#### or if you want to keep a log:###
# exec /usr/bin/fluxbox -log "~/.fluxbox/log""
