OpenBox setup Help

Post#1 by Jack » 07 Jul 2016, 02:26

I want to see if Porteus 3.2 will run only OpenBox and I know OpenBox is in 002 so I remove 003 so at that point I thought it would work but wrong. It did boot up but it didnt run OpenBox so could it be miss something or do I need to run something to set it up so it will work? I do know Kiosk dose run OpenBox so I thought I could get Porteus to do the same.

You can see OpenBox is in there and this is 002 files list.

The only modules I'm using is 000, 001 and 002 with no other modules. I will add them later when I get it to work.

Any idea or help would be great.

This can move if in the wrong area.
I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

I booted in text mode and after login I type startx. Here is the output will it in to xterm I thought it might open up OpenBox as a desktop. Is OpenBox missing some modules to make it work as a desktop?

I check with USM and it found these.
openbox-menu-0.8.0-x86_64-1_slack.txz was found in slackonly [not installed]
openbox-themes-1.0.2-noarch-1_slack.txz was found in slackonly [not installed]
zzz-settings-openbox-14.1-noarch-1dj.txz was found in salix [not installed]
user-settings-openbox-14.1-noarch-3dj.txz was found in salix [not installed]

yep thats it... a grey background with an open xterm..
if you rightclick outside the xterm window, you get the menu >terminal(xterm),filemanager(mc), editor(mcedit), web browser(lynx)
if you scroll on the background, this switches between four desktops..
this is an extremely basic setup on which to build a desktop with you prefered applications..

here is an example of a more complete setup with spacefm, lxterminal, tint2, etc..(for 3.1(do have a 3.2 version(s) in the works)
viewtopic.php?f=75&t=3988
here is an old tutorial that might help setting up openbox: (might do an updated version sometime..)

yes if your using it with 3.1, no if your using it with 3.2, because of mismatching networkwork-manager-applet..
i'll upload a new 3.2 (beta)version later today..

I just try to compile sources code and I keep getting error messages. I use sbopkg to build SlackBuild files. So what I'm thinking, I will do a full install of Slackware 14.4 x86_64 then that help with the error I been getting and it might do a better job on building. Here is a list what I'm trying to build.

Code: Select all

libfm-extra/
lxmenu-data/
menu-cache/
obapps/
obbrowser/
obconf/
obkey/
obmenu/
obmenu-generator/
obsession/
obshutdown/
openbox/
openbox-menu/
openbox-simple-theme/
openbox-themes/
perl-File-Which/
perl-IPC-Run3/
perl-IPC-System-Simple/
perl-Module-Build/
perl-PAR-Dist/
perl-Probe-Perl/
perl-Test-Script/
perl-data-dump/
perl-extutils-makemaker/
perl-file-basedir/
perl-file-desktopentry/
perl-file-mimeinfo/
perl-linux-desktop-files/
python-xlib/
vala/
wxPython/
I try to download from Slackonly but the site shows Server not found and I hope it is temp.
