for ubuntu and debian based systems. other wise, for scrennfetch its just a script, copy paste chmod -x and run ~/.screenfetch or where ever you want to put it. for archey, well I actually wouldn't know what to do because I have 0 experience or knowledge around python (I know, I know, but most of what I have been focusing on learning has been java or C++)

specool.gif+REP, just installed this on my Linux.

I miss Arch. frown.gif I switched to Xubuntu (can't stand Unity) in hope of being accepted in the Steam Linux beta. I usually use Xfce, but is this Openbox thing good? Any advantages?
post #4114 of 7733
if Openbox works anything like Fluxbox I personally found the right click menu to be very useful. Most is not all facets of fluxbox is controlled via text files. I know key bindings and the right click menu are for sure.

The Steam beta has been found working on ArchLinux (and you can even install it and login with a non-beta account, just most games won't install/start). As to your question, OpenBox is a really lightweight, fast Window Manager; its very popular, especially back in the day. Theres even ports/clones of it for Windows to replace explorer as the Shell. Personally I don't find it very intuitive or beneficial to my own productivity, but it is low on resource usage, and it is exceptionally responsive - even on the worst of hardware and the least optimal circumstances. Advantages? Plenty, its ambiguous to GTK and QT so you don't really have to specifically seek out QT or GTK+ apps for optimal compatibility (Most WM's hold this to be true, barring KWin and MetaCity, which from time to time have their issues working with GTK/QT respectively) From there its highly extensible, and configurable, the source code is well organized and documented and its a pleasure to tweak and hack. Its designed to be full featured enough to be fine on its own for most users with little to no modification, while maintaining a small footprint. Unlike DWM and the like, which are designed for a niche group of users who prefer a dedicated tiling WM and like to extensively modify their software to suit their needs (which isn't a bad thing, I like DWM - I'm just busy playing around in Compiz land right now tongue.gif)

If I may make a suggestion, leave Openbox installed, use it, and become familiar with it. If you start to feel it isn't for you (as I did) install other Window Managers alongside and login to sessions with those WMs/DEs. If you don't like the idea of logging in/out and potentially breaking things, then I suggest using a VM to test out different environments. I did this for a couple of weeks not too long ago and it ended up paying off. I found an environment that I really enjoyed using and that boosted my productivity, I have since reinstalled, and moved to that environment permanently. I'm still trying other things out, but for now I am very happy with my setup.

Depends on what your looking for. Personnlly, switch back to arch or move to debian/gentoo/fedora/etc.

For DE/WM, xfce is good for a DE but if you want to start with a standalone WM openbox is a good place to start

loving the console pipes script!

I seem to always end up back on Arch with XFCE.
