In the .desktop file, "NoDisplay=true" causes fluxbox to not appear in the LightDM session selection menu, this needs to be set to false or omitted. Normally, this is used to hide things like fluxbox from regular desktop menus, but this isn't a problem here since it's in /usr/share/xsessions, so won't appear in normal menus anyway.

Hi Ranguvar, This pkgbuild would certainly benefit from a update. As per the official fluxbox package: 1 - dependencies should be (confirmed by namcap): depends=('libxft' 'libxpm' 'libxinerama' 'libxrandr' 'imlib2' 'fribidi') optdepends=('xorg-xmessage: for using the fbsetbg and fluxbox-generate_menu utilities') 2 - as mentioned by mar77i, "|| return 1" is no longer necessary 3 - fluxbox.desktop now should go under /usr/share/xsessions 4 - backup=('usr/bin/startfluxbox') -> I don't think this was ever required Here's my updated pkgbuild (for reference): Thanks.
