-I directly open an openbox session
my .xinitrc does "exec ck-launch-session openbox-session"
to support gtk themes
instead of lxterminal (I also like yakuake & roxterm lol)
instead of xarchiver
instead of lxrandr
instead of LXNM (wicd can remember passwords
instead of lxmusic (I fell in love with exaile thx to Mint XFCE)
to create OB items instead of lxshortcut
-no need for lxinput even though my main language is french and I needed to set my keyboard in french lol. How I did it? I added in .xinitrc:
-to change wallpapers nitrogen
- Code: Select all
My autostart.sh file in ~/.config/openbox/
nitrogen --restore &
thunar --daemon &
conky -q &
So I don't have a heavy desktop environment but simply a boosted Open Box lol.
Since I'm the only one using my laptop I've modified /etc/inittab to autologin myself & startx automatically
