This is an Openbox pipe menu to open ROX Filer Bookmarks.

# Name this file bookmarks.sh by removing the .zip extension.
# Place in ~/.config/openbox. Make executable.
# Add the following line to ~/.config/openbox/menu.xml:
Code:

<menu id="Bookmarks" label="Bookmarks" execute="~/.config/openbox/bookmarks.sh"/>

# Then click on Reconfigure in the Openbox menu.

Does this tutorial work with Slacko 5.5? I am trying out Slacko now. I have Openbox working, and I also have fbpanel showing up in the Desktop menu but no fbpanel at the bottom of my screen.

Subject description: Can Openbox work on Precise Puppy 571?
 

Hello, Smile
Looks like there's not much activity on this thread, but, I'll try anyway.

Can Openbox be put on Puppy 571?

Machine has:
1.5GB RAM
75GB HDD
PAE
Precise Puppy 571 as full install on HDD.

I've downloaded the .pets from the first post of this thread.
Openbox shows in desktop settings menu, but, does not activate.
Openbox does not show as a menu item when doing a right click on desktop to show desktop menu. (On Lupu 528, Openbox shows below the *shutdown* option on the desktop menu.)
Download and installation appeared to go without issue.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
Edit:It appears that a windows manager switcher is needed. The only windows manager that is evident in the system is JWM.

@Sky Aisling: To start Openbox Try exiting to prompt, then type "startx openbox" (without quotes). I think that may do the trick for you. Let me know.

Hmm... or maybe try "xwin openbox"...I think?

BTW, vicmz's fantastic OpenboxPlus 1.6.1 pet includes a wm switcher, IIRC (as well as Tint2) - and works beautifully in Precise 5.7.1... if you're OK with LxPanel instead of Fbpanel, that is.

Sky Aisling,

You may be interested in FbBox which features fbpanel and the openbox window manager in a relatively small pet that integrates with most modern Woof-built Puppies, including Precise 5.7.1.

Thank you everyone,
I'll give these a try and post back.
Very Happy

The the themes are so appealing in Openbox.
@radky
Your Slacko with FbBox and twilight background is stunning. Nice work!

Using Precise Puppy 5.7.1 as Live CD (not full install as I mentioned in first post).

Thank you, mill0001

Negative
An Xpanel is thrown to the top of the screen.
The original panel is still at the bottom of the screen.
There is no activation of Openbox.
Reboot no longer activates.
Exit to prompt no longer activates.
Restart Xserver no longer activates.
Power down no longer activates.
I've uninstalled openbox and obconfig.
Shutdown options still don't activate.
I will cold cut the machine.
pause...
I have cold cut the machine and restarted.
The test changes to the save file must have carried over.
The desktop menu *shut down* options no longer activate.
I'll clean off the corrupted savefile and start a fresh Precise 571 savefile.
Then I'll try Moat's suggestion and radky's suggestion.
Note:
I took the openbox download from the first post in this thread.
I'm thinking there have been updates to the original that I've missed.
DaveS posted this .pet in 2011.
I have a hunch it's going to be the window switcher that does the trick. Smile

YES! Beautiful!

I'll tinker with it some more, but, at first blush it's working perfect. I've added WBar-2.3.4 and it's working with it fine.

The only downer is that I was trying Openbox in order to get the theme *Anchos* which is not listed on this version. Is there a place I can download *Anchos* theme?

Such a relief to have a beautiful background image come up on first boot.

Thank you, again for all the fine work you've put into this, radky.

You are welcome Sky Aisling.

From the Ubuntu Universe repository you can download a comprehensive package of almost 100 openbox themes, including the Anchos theme.

After downloading the deb package below, you can extract with the Xarchive utility (available in the Puppy menu), and then place the Anchos folder in /usr/share/themes.

http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/o/openbox-themes/openbox-themes_1.0.2_all.deb

Enjoy! Smile

I cheated. I copied the *Anchos* folder from Puppy-528 /usr/share/themes and copied it to /usr/share/themes in Precise-571. Working fine. Wink
