How to make Peppermint OS even faster with Openbox
Trent Isaacson, The Linux Critic, May 24 2010

A single page how to.

Explains steps which may be taken to use Openbox as window manager without LXDE, and why this might be desirable with a little history on Openbox.

The author uses apt-get to install obmenu. Team Peppermint recommend using the GUI Software Manager, or, if necessary, apt from the command line.

By default, obmenu does not install a launcher in the Menu. It can be run from the run dialogue by entering "obmenu".

If using feh to set desktop wallpaper, the appropriate entry for the default wallpaper to put in autostart.sh is

Peppermint One
Code:
feh --bg-scale /usr/share/peppermint/wallpapers/peppermint-default-wallpaper.png

Peppermint Ice
Code:
feh --bg-scale /usr/share/peppermint-ice/wallpapers/peppermint-ice-default.png

I tested the solution to work on my laptop. Additional: right click on the Menu button, choose Menu Settings and browse to

Peppermint One
Code:
/usr/share/peppermint/images/peppermint-logo.png

Peppermint Ice
Code:
/usr/share/peppermint-ice/images/peppermint-logo.png

to reset the Peppermint Menu launcher icon.
