So I have been using F17 for a little while now due to it using systemd which I am really enjoying the speed and flexibility.
SO ... to keep along the lines of speedy and flexible I have opted to use Slim instead of gdm and Openbox instead of Gnome.
Here are my 2 issues or quirks which I have yet to be able to solve:
1. Slim will always default to Gnome and I must press F1 prior to hitting enter on my password so i can log into Openbox instead? (suggestions?)
Those of you who have attempted this have probably come across the issues of:
a. /etc/slim.conf is updated every time the machine restarts and hence gnome is added as first desktop option
b. The default entry for openbox is /usr/bin/openbox however it is actually installed in /bin/openbox
2. After logging in to Openbox, whenever I issue the following command I seem to get more results than I anticipate:
$ pgrep -lf autostart
916 /usr/bin/openbox --startup /usr/libexec/openbox-autostart OPENBOX
1072 sh /home/grail/.config/openbox/autostart
1073 sh /home/grail/.config/openbox/autostart
1074 sh /home/grail/.config/openbox/autostart
1076 sh /home/grail/.config/openbox/autostart
Now I have checked against a vm of crunchbang and the first 2 entries seem to be standard, but I cannot for the life of me find out where or why the other 3 calls to my local autostart are being created???
So if anyone has any ideas I would be grateful for a little push in the correct direction
