    Best alternative to Openbox for LXDE/Lubuntu 13.04?

    I'm looking for an alternative to Openbox as I'd like get full window transparency going on my desktop. AFAIK Compiz, Metacity or XFWM4 should do the trick. Which window manager would you guys opt for? I'll try a bunch of them but it'd be nice to hear what your preferences would be..

    You could try using xcompmgr + transset to obtain the desired effect, while still keeping openbox/lxde.
