For more info read the openbox documentation
Important The background image, the fonts and the size of the icons on the panel and on the desktop are NOT modified whatever you change in the openbox configuration. These are matchbox settings.
The default configuration files are located in /etc/xdg/openbox.
You don't want to modify this files directly because
- If you messed up you won't be able to go back to the default configuration
- If you flash, you will loose your personal config
(ok this is not so true in our case but anyway it's not so bad to do it the recommended way ;))
so first do :
cd /home/root mkdir .config mkdir .config/openbox cp /etc/xdg/openbox/* .config/openbox/
This will copy the configuration files in the root home directory. from now on modify the files in /home/root/.config/openbox
Changing the theme
pdaxrom comes with several themes, to see them do:
To modify the theme used edit .config/openbox/rc.xml. you will find in this file:
<theme> <name>Artwiz</name> <titlelayout>NLIMC</titlelayout> </themes>
Just modify Artwiz with one of the names you see when you run
ls /usr/share/themes, and save the file. To see the change without exiting and restarting X windows, open up a console and execute
openbox --replace >& /dev/null &
Here are screenshots of the different themes:
The Emacs, Om40b, and TheBear themes look the same as the default theme. I suspect it is possible to use multiple themes in the rc.xml file, because the Emacs theme only defines keymappings, and does not define any graphical styles.
