OpenOffice.org in OpenBox

I'd like to have in Openbox, OpenOffice.org looking as it is in Xfce,or
KDE. I use Slackware 12, without GNOME.
Launching xfce-mcs-manager with autostart.sh make a good job with all
GTK apps, but not OO.O. To make OOO nice in OB, I have to launch
xfdesktop, and then I can't use OB menus any more. Same thing using OB
as XFCE's wm (and lauching Xfce is slower than OB).
The strange thing is, that after killing xfdesktop, I can launch OOO, it
stills looks fine, and a "ps -A" show me the same processes before, and
after launching/killing xfdesktop.
Would you see a way to have OOO looking as nice in OB, as Xfce or Kde ?
Thanks for your help, best regards.
My autostart.sh :
if which dbus-launch >/dev/null && test -z "$DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS";
then eval `dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session`
# Make GTK apps look and behave how they were set up in the gnome
# config tools
if which gnome-settings-daemon >/dev/null; then
# Preload stuff for KDE apps
if which start_kdeinit >/dev/null; then
LD_BIND_NOW=true start_kdeinit --new-startup +kcminit_startup &
# Preload stuff for XFCE
if which xfce-mcs-manager >/dev/null; then
