How to integrate LXDE with fluxbox and compiz (possible?)
Hello dear community. I am relatively new to openSUSE, I have installed it's 12.3 version using the DVD with LXDE in a netbook and it works amazingly. but now it surges a little project to make it perfect for my liking.
What I wish to do is run the LXDE desktop environment as it is right now with compiz but I want to find out how to install fluxbox, from some source with all of it's dependencies with the rpm's or something and once it is done, integrate fluxbox into LXDE by changing the LXDE right click options that appear when you normaly right click on your desktop and make appear on it's place the fluxbox's right clicking options (menu or whatsoever).
I don't know if I am clear enough with what I want to get or maybe the best way to do it is integrating the LXDE panel into fluxbox, that would also do the job indeed!

If there is anything I need to make more clear on just let me know (it is confusing, I know...) Thanks for reading and any help will be appreciated, (even a "this cannot be done") so don't be afraid of saying it.. bye.

LXDE is essentially Openbox with the lxpanel, lxappearance and the ability to create desktop icons. Fluxbox is a window manager similar to Openbox. If it is possible to replace LXDE's Openbox menu with Fluxbox's, it would require much more work than replacing Fluxbox's panel with lxpanel. In my opinion, the easiest way to achieve what you want would be to install Openbox with lxpanel. If you want desktop icons, however, that would require more configuration. In any case, if you do not already know how, you will need to learn how to edit configuration files.

Sorry guys, I know you will think this is a joke but this is a dead project now since the netbook I used is from a plan that exists in my country (Uruguay) and in many countries around the world where schools and high schools give to each student a computer for free to help in the studies.
Well the thing is that every student that receives one of this computers must connect to the wifi service of the education center to which he/she is concurring at least once a month to prevent blocking of the computer, I don't know why it happened right now but it just happened, my computer is blocked because I didn't connect to the high school wifi service in the past three or maybe four months and I need to get it "flashed" before I can use it again.

My most sincere apology for this but this wasn't something I planned. Thank you anyway to the person that gave me advise...
