openbox 003-DE module for 3.2.x 64bit

Here is a place for your projects which are not officially supported by the Porteus Team. For example: your own kernel patched with extra features; desktops not included in the standard ISO like Gnome; base modules that are different than the standard ISO, etc...

@ncmprhnsbl
I analyzed your "openbox".
Porting your "conky" spec, I built "openbox" with arch packages in the "APorteus" framework.
I will include it into "APorteus ISO builder".

Thanks.

From the beginning of this year I am using openbox and I think it is cool.
I have not encountered any errors at this time.
But now I want to make icons appear in the menu.
I searched the net and found no effective method for openbox in Porteus.
Entries in the menu4 file such as these do not help.
........
<item label="xterm" icon="/usr/share/icons/xterm.png">
.......
please enybody help
thanks.

is this a valid path?
for example: icon="/usr/share/icons/Paper/16x16/apps/xterm.png"

ok, so i looked into this further... at this point, correct/full path doesnt help...
my suspicion is: that openbox needs to be built in the presence of imlib2, to have this functionallity..
since openbox is part of the 002-xorg base module(and imlib2 is in 003-box) i guess it wasn't...

EDIT
ah but... it was built in the prescence of librsvg, so .svg icons will work:
eg: icon="/usr/share/icons/Paper/scalable/apps/utilities-terminal-symbolic.svg"
downsides to this are:
limited icons
openbox-menu(dynamic application menu) doesn't support this (afaics)yes it does but seems to prefer .pngs

It works!!!
And I spent 3 days over this and I could not find a way.
thank you.
It would be nice if the icons "* .png" worked.

so... my suspicion was correct, that openbox needed to rebuilt against imlib2..
here is a module of it: openbox-3.6.1-x86_64-1_ncm.xzm
this will get .png icons working..
if you want icons in the 'applications' part of the menu:
edit /home/guest/.config/menu.xml
line 8: change : <menu id="desktop-app-menu" label="Applications" execute="openbox-menu -i lxde-applications.menu" />
to: <menu id="desktop-app-menu" label="Applications" execute="openbox-menu lxde-applications.menu" />

I noticed that you have a shortcut called 'Porteus Modules' that points to /opt/porteus-scripts/extra/pmodules.sh. But there's no such file. What am I missing?
