How do you log in? Do you use GDM? Do you use startx?

I use the command line to start fluxbox, you most likley are using GDM. GDM is the Gnome Desktop Manager, a GUI login manager. You want to start it with startfluxbox and not just fluxbox. This may help;
http://aleph-null.tv/go.php?doc=20040819-1137-374.xml
Here is my ~./fluxbox/startup
Code:
# fluxbox startup-script:
#
# Lines starting with a '#' are ignored.

# You can set your wallpaper here if you don't want
# to do it from your style. But this is a gentoo splash screen.
#
# bsetbg -f ~/pictures/wallpaper.png
fbsetbg -C /root/.fluxbox/backgrounds/gentoo.png
sleep 5 
#
# This sets the background, I use Esetroot because
# it works well with transparent aterms

#/usr/bin/Esetroot -scale /root/.fluxbox/backgrounds/cool.jpg
/usr/bin/Esetroot -scale /root/.fluxbox/backgrounds/background.png
#/usr/bin/Esetroot -scale /root/.fluxbox/backgrounds/DrStrange.jpg
#/usr/bin/Esetroot -scale /root/.fluxbox/backgrounds/vista4.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 /root/.font
#
# 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.
#
# unclutter -idle 2 &
# wmnd &

#### xcompmgr #####
#xcompmgr -fF -I-.002 -O-.003 -D3 -cC -t-5 -l-6 -r5 &

# This starts wbar, the launcher at the top
wbar  --isize 48 --pos top --jumpf 0 --balfa 0 &


# This starts conky, the system monitor on the right
conky &

# This plays a little tune
#mpg321 -o alsa /root/mp3/pilots/sourgirl.mp3 &
mpg321 -o alsa /root/sounds/011_login\ B.mp3 &
# 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

Open your fluxbox theme file, find line beginning with rootCommand, and make it look like
Code:
rootCommand: fbsetbg -f <path to your background image>
.
And read man fluxstyle.
