I'm using RASPBIAN and I don't really like the default window manager.

How can I uninstall it and switch on openbox?


I installed openbox (sudo apt-get install openbox) and create the ~/.xinitrc file like this:

$ echo "exec openbox-session" > ~/.xinitrc 

Now, when I run startx, the openbox session is started.

  • openbox may already be installed. It is on my Raspbian systems. – joan Aug 11 '15 at 10:28
  • @joan Actually it was... Yes. :-) This is my second day using Raspberry PI! I'm so happy with it. :) – Ionică Bizău Aug 11 '15 at 10:31
