shepper said:I have a similiar setup with openbox/tint2/feh. One option that is alluded to but not fully described is to to use the terminal "-e" option to make a menu item to run an ncurses based app. I do this for nmcpc, top, midnight commander and rtorrent. An example menu item for openbox:
Code:<item label="rTorrent"> <action name="Execute"> <execute> xterm -e rtorrent </execute> </action> </item>

My 2cents.. the first three things i find very useful to have at hand after a new install (way before i even think of X) are:
You open two panes in tmux, work your way through the installation in one, and keep the other in /usr/local/share/doc/freebsd/handbook with lynx ready to allow you to navigate through the docs. Whatever goes wrong, you have nicely formatted help always at hand
