okay then read this http://www.fluxbox.org/docbook/en/fl...ocs.html#AEN91
make sure that when you installed you followed all of the steps paying special attention to section 2.1.3
And read this
http://www.fluxbox.org/docs/en/faq.php#gdm
follow the instructions and, ta-da, you should be able to log right in to fluxbox.
Enjoy

change the last line to
exec fluxbox
It shouldn't make a difference but let's see what happens.
