Default F15: LXDE install, OpenBox not running

I installed the LXDE spin of Fedora 15 via a live usb stick on my Acer Netbook.
The install went through without errors but when starting up LXDE, the
Openbox window manager isn't running.
Starting it by hand works though I'm not sure how to correctly set it
up that it starts up every time. Any hints?

Thanks,
Niels

There was a bug at some point I thought was already fixed... Maybe it
made it onto the spins?

Take a look at:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=704403

The fix is probably to update and then remove and add your user.

An alternative might be to update than then "rm -f
~/.config/lxsession" and relogin.

YMMV

How do you start LXDE ?

I do:

$ cat .xinitrc
# start LXDE
startlxde

$ startx

$ ps aux |grep -i lxde
jb 11541 0.0 0.0 4452 748 pts/2 S+ 18:10 0:00 grep -i lxde
jb 29913 0.0 0.1 4856 1200 ? S Jun03 0:01
/usr/bin/lxsession -s LXDE -e LXDE
jb 29924 0.0 0.7 14880 5780 ? S Jun03 0:12 openbox
--config-file /home/jb/.config/openbox/lxde-rc.xml
jb 29926 0.1 4.3 334880 32860 ? Sl Jun03 5:13 lxpanel
--profile LXDE

Also have:

$ cat /etc/sysconfig/desktop
PREFERRED=/usr/bin/startlxde
DISPLAYMANAGER=/usr/sbin/lxdm

I noticed that the top line PREFERRED= seems to do nothing.* I still can't find any way to run slim

Thanks, deleting the ~/.config/lxsession/LXDE as recommended in the
Bugzilla entry did the trick.
