OpenBox wrecked my computer, My Mageia dosen't start Properly.
I have a Mageia Gnome Computer, and I decided to try out Open Box and Installed it from the Package manager. After I logged out and logged back in whit an OpenBox Session, and All I got was my wallpaper and nothing else. Usually my computer doesn't show the Login Manager It instantly starts up into my user. Now every time I turn on my computer it starts on Openbox (Only Wallpaper Nothing else). Please help, how can I go into the Login Manager.
Openbox is a WM only, not a desktop environment, that means you have to install a panel and stuff yourself, if you want to use one. To log out of Openbox just right-click on the background and select the Logout option in the menu.
For starters, from the command line in safe mode you can try editing your ~/.xinitrc file to start a different WM with startx so you don't have to keep booting into safe mode. As for Openbox, I've had some problems myself with it, so I don't know much about it, but you could try looking at gdm's log in /var/log (if gdm has one) to get some possible insight on where to start fixing it.
