View Full Version : [gnome] GDM won't load Openbox in UNR 9.10

March 2nd, 2010, 06:03 AM

I've been trying, unsuccessfully, to get open box to work on UNR 9.10.
I followed the following steps:

*I have removed gnome (apt-get remove libgnome2-0).
* installed Openbox
*Re-installed gdm

When I boot, I get a blank screen and no openbox is loaded.

There is a bug report on the same (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openbox/+bug/272418), but none of the workarounds mentioned there seem to work for me :(

Any pointers?

Are you sure Openbox is not loaded? Openbox doesn't come with panels or wallpapers or icons on the desktop. You just get a blank screen; right click and you have your desktop menu.

Also, could you post your ~/.xsession-errors file? There might be some relevant information in there.
