Getting started with Openbox

Openbox is included in most popular linux distributions. However if the latest version is not available to you through your distribution, you can download it from the download page. Packages are available there for a few distrubutions, as well as the source code which you can compile yourself. For help compiling Openbox, please see our compiling guide.

Once Openbox is installed, running it is quite simple whether you log in through the graphical interface or through a text-based terminal. The following sections talk about both of these cases.
