Hi...I assume that you have installed fluxbox and you want to know how to launch it.....I am sorry if this is not the case..

If you have installed fluxbox correctly, click on the 'SESSION' link at the bottom of the graphical login screen. You will notice fluxbox as an option. Select it, and then log in as you would normally do. You will then be taken to the fluxbox desktop.

Regards,

amit
