Debian Multimedia :: Gnome - Openbox Hybrid ?

Dec 30, 2010

Is it possible (without too much difficulty) to have an Openbox/Gnome desktop?

Since Gnome is a full desktop environment and Openbox is only a Window Manager.

Use the Gnome DE and have Openbox WM, instead of Metacity or Compiz? (with Ob Config & Menu included)

I know it won't be near as light as a straight Openbox, but it would add Ob convenience to Gnome DE. What do you think? Work-arounds?

On a small partition I have LinuxMintDebian 'testing' (Gnome) x64 ... can I 'add' Openbox? Not replacing anything except the WM?

Mar 26, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 CLI with Openbox as the WM on my Dell laptop. I installed gnome-power-manager because I like to suspend my laptop when the lid is closed. When the close the lid and reopen it, the screen is black and the computer never suspends. This happens regardless of whether or not gnome-power-manger is running is the background.

Debian Multimedia :: Autostart.sh In Openbox?

May 23, 2011

When my .xinitrc contains exec /usr/bin/openbox-session My displays will turn off like there is no video output. I cannot switch to a TTY (or at least there is still no video when I try). I can however ssh into the machine. Alt+SysRq+K does not seem to kill the X session, but Alt+SysRq+B will reboot the machine.When my .xinitrc contains exec /usr/bin/openbox and I manually run sh .config/openbox/autostart.sh everything seems to go smoothly. I really don't understand the discrepancy.

sleep 3s;
xsetroot -solid "#303030"

Fedora :: Openbox - Set Wallpaper In Proper Way

Apr 6, 2011

I set openbox wallpaper with:
feh --bg-scale ~/Pictures/image.jpg &
In ~/.config/openbox/autostart.sh last line.
But some kind of KDE stuff overrides it and sets default again after few seconds. I can override it again with manual command. How can I set wallpaper then in openbox in proper way?

Apr 8, 2011

I use Eclipse IDE and there is a handy binding that I use when I'm running Eclipse on Windows that doesn't work under Openbox. Ctrl-Alt-Up causes a line to be duplicated. I've tried everything to have this key sequenced passed to Eclipse under Openbox, but it seems Openbox is taking itI've tried commenting out all the C-A-Up settings in rc.xml, but that doesn't seem to work. How to configure Openbox (or whomever) to pass the sequence on to the application?

General :: Power Management In Openbox?

Jun 16, 2011

I'm fairly used to working with Fluxbox.There,if I want to let myself suspend the computer, all I have to do is add something like Code:[exec] (suspend) {sudo /usr/sbin/pm-suspend}to my .fluxbox/menu and it works like a charm, after having added me to the sudoers. I nstalled openbox earlier today because I was having some font rendering issues in flux and I've been trying to find a way to add something similar to my menu without success. I added this to .config/openbox/menu.xml:

<item label="suspend">
<action name="Execute">

Ubuntu :: Unable To Configure Openbox Settings ?

Aug 4, 2011

I have just installed Lubuntu (from Ubuntu). I would like to add a few items to the right-click menu. I tried doing it using ObMenu as well as directly by editing the configuration files in /home/{user}/.config/openbox, but the default remains unchanged (even after reloading the configurations from the right-click menu or rebooting). Could someone give detailed instructions (e.g. where should I add some apps so as to see on the right click applications list?). The default on my right-click are a file manager, a browser and a terminal.

Also, I dont see a way to edit the main menu (the one at the lower left corner of my screen) anymore, although I remember to have accessed it from the main menu somewhere.

Ubuntu :: Changing Icons In OpenBox Windows?

Aug 7, 2011

I've been trying to change some of the icons in my system. I first tried the GUI. This changed the icon in the start menu, on the panel, and on the desktop, but it doesn't change the icon in the left-hand corner of open windows or in the task bar in the panel. I then went in and did it manually by editing the .desktop files in /usr/share/applications. Same thing...the icons in Openbox windows are the old ones. My guess is that Openbox is looking elsewhere for icons, but I dont really know.

Debian :: Openbox As VNC Desktop On Headless Server?

May 15, 2015

I'm currently using the default Gnome desktop environment on my server when I connect via VNC, but I've been trying to Openbox on Crunchbang lately and I rather prefer it for being so light. I'm a relative noob and don't want to cock anything up - what's the simplest way to switch to the Openbox environment for when I connect via VNC, and once that's working, whats the safest way to remove Gnome?

Debian Multimedia :: Can't Start Openbox - No Errors

Jan 24, 2016

I asked the question on LQ, but since activity related to Debian there is smaller, it is here.

I can't start Openbox, using xinit or startx. I have a warning when using xinit:

Code: Select all***** Imlib2 Developer Warning ***** :

This program is calling the Imlib call:

    With the parameter:
    being NULL. Please fix your program.

I don't have dbus, display managers, X is started on tty3 because I reduced the number of ttys. In xinitrc there is

Code: Select allexec openbox-session

I see a cursor appearing for a second, but then the screen goes back to tty.

The problem is new; I'd been using Openbox for a couple of months back then, and it was fine.

System is Unstable.

Fedora :: Package Manager Fails In Openbox?

Mar 5, 2010

after a while of using Gnome with Fedora 12, I installed Openbox and started the configuration process. Everything is pretty much just the way I like it, but when I open the package manager and try to install something, it says "Authorization failed: you have failed to provide proper authentication. Please check any passwords or account settings" I'm sure it's because I forgot to add something to my autostart.sh, but I'm not sure exactly what...
