View Full Version : [all variants] [openbox] Can't launch openbox

HELP! Can't launch openbox (simple 'startx' without editing of '~/.xinitrc' works).

Errors from xkbcomp are not fatal to the X server
Openbox-Message: Unable to find a valid menu file "/var/lib/openbox/debian-menu.xml"
Openbox-Message: Unable to find a valid menu file "debian-menu.xml"

After startx, it just shows ****** desktop wallpaper (even without small console in top-left corner) and X-cross mouse pointer. Only Control+Alt+F2 saved me from rebooting.
