    Default Starting compiz in LXDE

    anyone can tell me how i can make sure that compiz starts on boot in LXDE?
    i got opensuse 11.3 LXDE, but need to change to compiz manually each time i boot my system by starting simple-ccsm and checking the enable checkbox.

    Just a small remark: compiz will not start at boottime, since no X is running. It should be made to start on login. This may seem a futile remark, but I write it to avoid you looking in the runlevel editor, /etc/profile etc. The solution to this matter should be in your /home. I'll have a look in LXDE if this can be set to autostart.

    open lxsession-edit and set compiz-manager as your window manager.
    this will automatically start compiz for you.
    you might have to install the package compiz-manager first...

    otherwise you can use fusion-icon [1] to switch between compiz and openbox.
