I'm trying to use openbox to customize my raspberry pi 3. Basically, what I want to do is start an openbox session on boot up and have openbox autostart a GUI application. This is what I have so far
I commented out the first 3 lines:
#@lxpanel --profile LXDE-pi #@pcmanfm --desktop --profile LXDE-pi #@xscreensaver -no-splash
and added this line:
This causes openbox to start when I boot up my system. I see a black screen
Following this guide: http://openbox.org/wiki/Help:Autostart It says that
"When you log in with the "Openbox" session type, or launch Openbox with the openbox-session command, the environment script will be executed to set up your environment, and the autostart script can launch any applications you want to run at startup."
so, I edited the autostart file in ~/.config/openbox/autostart in my pi user. (I also tried editing the global file) I put this in the file:
On first reboot it worked my GUI starts up which is great but...next reboot I'm back to black screen and I see part of my GUI in the top left corner and all the rest is black.
