    Hello and welcome to the forums!

    Installing fluxbox should be pretty simple if you use pacman because it will pull in any dependencies along with the fluxbox package itself:

    Code:
    pacman -S fluxbox

    First off, you need to keep in mind that Fluxbox is not a desktop environment, but a window manager only. In addition, installing it and configuring it are two different things. You can find a nice HowTo that should get you going on the Arch Wiki:

    If you are using the KDM or GDM display manager, you won't need a ~/.xinitrc file. If you aren't using KDM/GDM, you can create the .xinitrc file by creating a blank file named .xinitrc in your /home/your_username/ folder, then adding the entry to it that starts fluxbox as outlined in the HowTo. Then when you've logged in from the command line, entering the startx command and pressing ENTER should start both, the xserver and fluxbox.
