reopen 462914
clone 462914 -1
reassign -1 xfce4-session
retitle -1 should use the x-window-manager alternative instead of running xfwm
severity -1 wishlist
retitle 462914 fluxbox is not a session manager, it shouldn't pretend otherwise

No, that won't prevent you from doing that.  Any session manager should
allow you to choose which window manager you're running.  If it doesn't
then that's a bug in the session manager imo (and in any case, it's just
a matter of replacing the default window manager with fluxbox in your
session and saving it).  Or if you don't want to use any session
manager, then you're welcome to use ~/.xsession.  And in any case
working around that in fluxbox by pretending to be a session manager is
actively harmful.
