I was folowing this tutorial and installed openbox :
I went through these steps:
sudo apt-get install openbox obconf
sudo apt-get install tint2
sudo apt-get xcompmgr
sudo apt-get install docky
thing is that i have to start docky manually from the command line to get it to work.
even then i still get composting errors - even though i installed xcompmgr.
is there a start up file where i could stick the /usr/lib/docky/Docly.exe so it will start when i start the machine.
