Thanks for the package!

One thing that kind of bothers me, when I download something in Seamonkey, the normal window opens up asking what you want to do with the file. If I click save it to disk, the file selection window opens under the previous window instead of on top of it. Any idea how to fix?


Thanks again.

No, I'm not sure. I use Opera and it works fine with Openbox.

hi,

I've just installe this openbox package and it is running beautifully except for the gui configuration tool. When i installed the obmenu .pet it came back with two missing dependencies: libobrender.so.16 and libobparser.so.16. If anyone know how to fix this I would appreciate it. ohh and I'm running the newly released puppy 4.00.

Cheers

2 plinej: is it possible to change menu of openbox and lxpanel( fbpanel) to have entry for exit to prompt?
for example if one decides to change wm how can he do it ?

Thanks Plinej!! (In re: to what we "discussed".) And once again: Keep up the great work. These work flawlessly on my Linux box---so well in fact that I ended up doing a full install of 4.0 to the hard drive and making OB/LX/ROX-filer the default desktop instead of JWM and now I rarely ever use anything else (except Muppy 083 now n' then). It's just such a "comfortable desktop" from which to work and the speed is out of this world.

Getting another box here in about a month. I can't wait to try out this desktop on the new unit I'll be getting then as well! Smile

Thanks mate for everything.

Amicalement,

I get this too, but I suspect it is actually a GTK bug - file select dialogues in the Gimp are shown below the utility windows, so I think maybe the GTK file select dialogs need to be hinted as utility windows. It would be interesting to see if upgrading GTK fixed this.

One other odd thing is that the double-click-on-titlebar feature doesn't work Sad

No, actually that is different isn't it, because the Seamonkey file selector dialogues just come up under the previous window, but it doesn't stay on top if you click them. Similar though - maybe these are Openbox bugs.

I think you're correct Disciple because I haven't been in my usual Openbox/LXPanel desktop for quite some time now, ever since Playdayz put out the minimalistic Blackbox desktop (I love it!! Smile ). Then the "other day" I was doing a hack which involved transparency work and I wanted to see if it would carry over into OB/LX...

...to make a long story short, I'd forgotten just how nice this particular combo is. Then when I downloaded a .pet file from PuppyLover this all came back, what's being discussed here. LOL.

So yeah... I'd sooner say it's an Openbox bug than a gtk one. If it were gtk then it would be consistently happening across the board regardless the desktop. Ditto if a SM bug. (My powers of observation sometimes amaze even me! Razz <---That's for ME and nobody else. LOL)

So hopefully my chiming in has helped in some feeble way?

Amicalement/Cheers!
