Hey, I did it.
(Note, this was all as root)
go to /etc/X11/wmsession.d/

Make an new file flux, call it FluxBox, and have this in it:
Code:
NAME=FluxBox
ICON=
EXEC=/usr/local/bin/fluxbox
DESC="Flux baby yeah"
SCRIPT:
exec /usr/local/bin/fluxbox
Changing the DESC to whatever you want

Then, to edit GDM go to /etc/X11/gdm/Sessions
And make a new file for Flux, call it FluxBox and have it contain:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
exec /etc/X11/xdm/Xsession FluxBox
chmod +x FluxBox

For KDM:

cd /usr/share/config/kdm
open up kdmrc and find the entry:
Code:
SessionTypes=KDE,GNOME,WindowMaker,Enlightenment,BlackBox,XFce,IceWM,failsafe
And add FluxBox, I put my entry in after XFCE, but it's really your choice.

Now, save and exit. Restart your X server with CTRL ALT BACKSPACE, and you should now have Flux in your KDM/GDM menus, and it should work to execute them.

Also, I am not sure what happen when you tweaked that file, but I will be happy to post my entire config...

Ok, better idea, here's a link to them on my box:
ftp://masterc.no-ip.org/share

Go in there and I will have copies of all files involved, you can compare and change as needed.

Give me a few minutes they will be in there by 1230 PST, that's roughtly 1/2 hour from now.

Cool

Ok, they are there, and have been renamed to show where they go. Might be a little confusing though...

The 07FluxBox is actually the name, you will see the naming scheme once you get to /etc/X11/wmsession.d/ and then see why I called it 07FluxBox.

If you have any questions, I'll be happy to help.

Cool

I renamed ice to 08 and put flux as 07, no problems doing that as far as I can tell.

Cool
