Features

  • Real theme previews generated using libobrender
  • Written in Ruby, not a pain in the ass to add new options to it (not 500 callback functions like the C version)

Caveats

  • Lags behind openbox development either because I'm lazy or because of school.
  • Ubuntu has an old (buggy) version of ruby-gnome2 in its repositories that doesn't work well with Obconf.

Installation

You'll need the following:

* openbox from subversion
  * svn co svn://svn.icculus.org/openbox/trunk/ openbox
  * cd openbox; ./configure --prefix=/usr; make; make install [make install requires root privileges]
* ruby-gnome2 0.16.0 or cvs.
  * FOR 0.16.0 ONLY: edit /usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/libglade2.rb
    * find (should be line 42)

{{{

  1. !ruby

if signal_proc }}}

    * add guard_source_from_gc(source) so that it looks like

{{{

  1. !ruby

if signal_proc

   guard_source_from_gc(source)

}}}

* ruby-gettext
* obtain and install obconf
  * svn co http://svn.l3ib.org/obconf/trunk obconf
  * cd obconf; sudo ruby setup.rb [requires root privileges]
* enjoy life
  * run obconf2
