Openbox in mint repos?

Post by lizbeth » Fri May 08, 2015 4:22 pm

I got this system76 meerkat because i could get financing. It comes with ubuntu 15.04 preinstalled and the website i like to watch with pipelight flash enabled works flawlessly on it. I havent had quite as good luck with debian jessie and debian testing distros. I was thinking of installing openbox and booting ubuntu into openbox but i see it isn't in the repositories and so i thought maybe linux mint still has openbox in their repos, possibly i could install linuxmint and get whatever bennies ubuntu is giving me with pipelight from linux mint and just use openbox. I know it may seem strange but i really prefer openbox.

So is openbox still in the repos for linuxmint 17.1?

Packages like Openbox in Mint come from the Ubuntu repos. Even if Mint had a version of Openbox it would not do you any good. Mint is using the Ubuntu 14.04 base and you are using Ubuntu 15.04.

openbox is available in ALL the supported ubuntu editions
http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=openbox
[in universe that AFAIK is not enabled by default in ubuntu]
