Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've read the other threads and this is either a bug, or the one person who knows the correct incantation hasn't read them yet.
I want to use openbox3 together with gnome-panel
I start from a console with startx
I'm hooked on dockapps
I need a visual pager (bbpager, fluxter, and all the others I tried with ob2 don't work)
I can program the ob3 keyboard shortcuts to do what I want
I like to TOGGLE vertical and horizontal maximization (it's 1-way with metacity)
What I've tried:
1. naive xinitrc
FAILED with corba errors (as noted in many other posts at LQ.org and gentoo forums)
the standard answer is to use 'openbox --replace' and then save your gnome session with 'gnome-session-save'. How do I ditch nautilus to get the ob3 menus?
FAILED with a hang on the restart of X with startx (Ctrl-Atl-Backspace to the rescue)
