From Openbox

Pretty keen.

Hi. I'm Spoiledbroth. I write bad code and use openbox. I like minimalism.

I hope to leave some scripts, pipemenus, and short tutorials on this page.


Desktop integration tips

  • Employ "the xdotool pattern" to integrate multiple Openbox menus.
  • Integrate window tiling into your Openbox desktop with X-Tile.
