ok im back to good ol openbox and thought i would give some feedback on recent install and default options.
still seems to be bug with the install process. text missing on install pages. not sure if this is openbox alone or other desktops also. it was quite the adventure getting the install done but i made it
the file manager thunar seems to be crashing a lot mostly when moving files in between folders. i did see the error code in the terminal and its something that might be addressed in a future thunar update. probably need to go back to pcmanfm which looks just as good now. they both have most the same features.
all the extra tint2 themes are gone from the last time i installed openbox. used to have many tint2 configs to choose from.
the actual look and feel i think could use an update. i know the goal is typically to give the desktops a universal look but think that is much harder to do with openbox. would love to see a new wallpaper with antergos logo on it. that deep blue is a killer on the eyes maybe slim down openbox remove plank, conky, compton. lets give the openbox version an actual niche as a desktop for low end pcs and advanced users. i mean it even says it on the install its not for new users so lets roll with that.
we could load the tint2 with the apps launcher on it to do away with plank. just think it would be good to slim it down and any advanced user can easily add those features.
the system theme and icons dont seem to match very well either.
all these are just ideas i have. still a very good default setup. anyone who is good with openbox can make these changes very quickly but just think overall openbox could use a new coat of paint. maybe find that target audience we want. are we trying to present this to newbies, low end pcs, advanced users? what are we shooting for.
after looking through the task manager there is probably some more fat we could cut out of it. i mean this could really fly on some older machines.
anyway still think openbox is perfect for Arch im glad antergos still includes it
