Subject description: 2008-04-20 - updated
 

This was compiled in Puppy 4 and may not work in other Puppies.

This is the openbox window manager & its gui configuration tool.

http://icculus.org/openbox/index.php/Main_Page

This depends on libstartup-notification which I know I've posted before but I'll post again.

Just install the dotpets and at the command line type:

# obmenu-refresh

Exit to a prompt (ctrl-alt-backspace) and type

# xwin openbox-session

Openbox has no panel so you may want to use lxpanel or fbpanel from:

2008-01-22:
I revised the obmenu-refresh script. You'll want to add these lines to the end of /usr/sbin/fixmenus

Code:

#support for fbpanel, lxpanel, openbox, fluxbox, pekwm...
[ `which tempicons` ] && tempicons
[ `which fbpanel_menu_refresh` ] && fbpanel_menu_refresh
[ `which lxpanel_menu_refresh` ] && lxpanel_menu_refresh
[ `which jwm2fluxbox` ] && jwm2fluxbox  ##current fluxbox_menu_refresh doesn't support menu icons while this does
[ `which obmenu-refresh` ] && obmenu-refresh
[ `which jwm2pekwm` ] && jwm2pekwm

Hi plinej!

First of all, thanks a lot for your work.

When I load to openbox I just get a black desktop, no icons, nothing. But I can right click with the mouse and open the puppy menu.

Also if I want to open rox-filer I just get thunar but without my normal icons, but this happens with xfce4 too.

There was an Xfce package around here that did "rename" rox to use thunar. I wasn't particulary fond of getting thunar to fire up that way so I changed it back. My guess is that this also happened to you.

Hi trapster,

Do you remember how did you change it?, I sometimes prefer rox over thunar. Smile

Any ideas of why I get a black screen?

Thanks.

I do not use openbox so I cannot help you with the black screen.

The rox / thunar rung a bell because I went thru it.
Have a look in /usr/bin, you will find a file called "rox". Open it as a text file and you'll see what's going on. If I remember correctly, I just renamed it to rox-thunar (in case I ever wanted to use it) and that fixed things.

The /usr/bin/rox file is a redirection and has provisions to use rox if you went back to jwm and to use thunar if you use Xfce. My problem is I use 3 - 4 different wm's at any given day of the week.

Hope this helps.

This is correct,

/usr/bin/rox is a script that calls the file manager based on window manager choice.

/usr/local/bin/rox is the "true" rox, so renaming (or removing) /usr/bin/rox will effectively disable the script allowing the "true" rox to start.

I'm not sure why you wouldn't get icons. I'm using openbox and the icons still work fine. I'm guessing something else you installed or did messed them up. It's probably something to do with the rox script you have as opposed to the real rox. You could probably just run the following command to get your icons back though:

# /usr/local/bin/rox -p /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin

Hi guys!

Yes it was the /usr/bin/rox, I rename it and that's solved the black screen and now rox works with openbox and xfce4.

Thanks Laughing
