Docky with openbox
I was folowing this tutorial and installed openbox :

I went through these steps:


sudo apt-get install openbox obconf

sudo apt-get install tint2

sudo apt-get xcompmgr

sudo apt-get install docky

thing is that i have to start docky manually from the command line to get it to work.

using this



even then i still get composting errors - even though i installed xcompmgr.

is there a start up file where i could stick the /usr/lib/docky/Docly.exe so it will start when i start the machine.

What's in your openbox autostart script? (~/.config/openbox/autostart)
Exactly what command do you use to start Docky? (their documentation is poor in this regard.)
Docly.exe is weird for a Linux binary.

there actually is not a autostart directory.
I would make one - but dock seems to be working now - not well - but good enough i guess.
when i was in high school i had a car that didn't always start.

i might run a virtual machine with fedora or centos and see if it works better.

autostart is a script file. You can set it to run any program you want at startup.
You can add a time delay to the files started by the autostart script. (it often helps)
