Hey, An openbox pet. I'll probably give it a try since I'm not very impressed with jwm in Slacko.

Thanks for the .pet PuppyLuvr! I can't wait to give this a trial run in one of my newer Puppy installs here! Woohoo!! And icons in the menus sounds interesting to say the least! Very Happy

Thanks again for your contributions - and to Magerlab for having brought this to everyone's attention as well. Way to go Magerlab! Cool

Myself, I've always loved using the simplicity of either LX or FBpanel & Openbox - or for that real minimalistic feel - just the plain Openbox session itself due to it being so low and non-demanding upon my computers resources. That's when Puppy TRULY flies like a nuclear-powered rocket!

Cheers/Amicalement,

I use openbox as mmy main window manager since i found it some 4 years ago i think.. jwm and icewm are also good but openbox is more stable and serves wery well:)

as fo icons in menu - i haven't tried this yet. It's supposed to add a path to icon to each menu entry manually, so some script is needed to add all icons Smile

The .pet posted here will need the patch to build a menu using fixmenus and obconf. I will see if I can find them on my cluttered har drive Smile
Meantime, if anybody wants to try Openbox/Fbpanel in Slacko, there is a pre-configured build available from the package manager, which patches menu building etc and includes obconf.

OK, here is the patch for fixmenus. Just install and run fixmenus in terminal to build an Openbox menu. No icons though, sorry Smile
Obconf is proving more tricky due to missing libs.... on it.

OB runs just fine, its obconf that does not. Not sure it is even part of your .pet? It is normally a secondary install.

I downloaded pemasu's openbox pet which has obconf included and
installed that.Then I compiled and installed the openbox-3.5.0.tar.gz
It's working fine in wary 52190.
