As you may already know, Openbox is a lightweight highly customizable Window Manager, installed by default on Slackware, Crunchbang and other Linux distributions.

Because it is available in the default repositories, this is how you install OpenBox on Ubuntu and Linux Mint:

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get openbox obmenu

Copy Openbox’s configuration files to your user’s home, in order to customize it easily, only for you, not system wide:

$ mkdir -p ~/.config/openbox
$ cp /etc/xdg/openbox/{rc.xml,menu.xml,autostart,environment} ~/.config/openbox
