It's still there. I think when you turn off "Click to raise" then you
can enable auto-raise.

Well, that's overstating it a bit. CTRL-Left (or is it ALT-Left?)
goes to the next workspace or window. Sorry if this is a little
confused; I went back to Blackbox and now use bbkeys for that feature.
cp /etc/X11/fluxbox/fluxbox-menu ~/.config/fluxbox/menu
cp /usr/share/fluxbox/styles ~/.config/fluxbox/styles
Find a fluxbox init file (locate fluxbox | grep -i init), copy it to
~/.config/fluxbox/init, then edit it changing paths to yours in
~/.config, edit your preferred style file, edit your menu file.
Fluxbox/blackbox are far more hand configurable and better behaved
than the monsters other distros offer.
Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
