I've removed the default .fluxbox config from 8.x, since we can't rely 
on apps being installed from KDE4 before. The user will need to 
configure the fluxbox WM to their liking, but I will add the new 
wallpaper when we get it.

Should be fixed in next snapshot.

Flux doesn't support desktop-icons if I recall correctly. You have to 
install and customize another "desktop" application.
