    How to start 'clean' openbox session on linux mint lxde


    Hi,
    I've recently installed linux mint lxde edition and I want to run openbox session without lxde processes (such as lxpanel etc.) I want just openbox without any unnecessary processes.

    I'm looking forward to your reply cos on my PC any KB of RAM is at a premium

    Thanks in advance.

    Well, Here is the link to Mint LXDE user guide in PDF form. Just download the pdf and read. I don't run Mint by the way. I run Fluxbox on this rig also. It is pretty light on resources like openbox.

    Well, if I understand you correctly. My ~/.fluxbox file is a hidden file in my /home/(your user name)/.fluxbox directory.

    You have to use view hidden files in PcManFM while in /home/(your user name) to see it. It will say /.openbox. There should be a some text files like, preferences, applications, etc...... in that folder.
