View Full Version : Starting Openbox

6th April 2008, 03:36 AM
I just installed FC8 x86_64 and would like to know where the X .session files are kept on Fedora. They're not in any of the usual places, and also not in /etc/X11/xinit/Xclients.d/ despite what comments in config files suggest. I could write my own file for that directory, which I suppose one day may be where they're supposed to go, but I thought I'd talk to the experts here first.

All I want to do is use a startup file for Openbox so that I can load a few things first. I tried ~/.Xclients and that did nothing.

Also, I want to load the Gnome settings when Openbox starts up, but the file that I'm used to (gnome-settings-daemon) doesn't seem to exist on Fedora. Anyone know what I should use instead?

EDIT: Oops, I posted too soon ... apparently the ~/.config/openbox/autostart.sh still works even though one isn't supplied with the Fedora rpm ...

I'm still wondering about the Gnome settings, though.

EDIT AGAIN: Got it ... it's /usr/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon and thus not in $PATH

So ... never mind ;)
