[Slackbuilds-users] openbox slackBuild: minor fix and suggestions for xinit scripts

Sounds great.  I just sent you an updated tarball.

I attached a diff to this email so everyone can see the changes I made and take part in tweaking them if desired.

*) The extra xinit scripts are not installed by default and can be selected for install in the script or in the commandline.
*) All the xinit scripts are now copied to /usr/doc/openbox
*) The openbox-kde-session and openbox-gnome-session mini scripts in /usr/bin are moved to /usr/doc/openbox if their respective xinit script is not installed.

Sorry about the slow response.  I just received the digest tonight.

Ok, if you will send me a diff or a tarball with the revised
SlackBuild and related files, I'll check it out and test it.  I ask
that you have this functionality disabled by default in the SlackBuild
by commenting out the lines that would enable it.  You can add a
comment in the SlackBuild and the REAMDE informing folks that they can
enable the functionality if they choose to do so.  It's not a bad idea
to have this in the SlackBuild, but I just like to keep things as
simple and vanilla as possible.  I think having folks voluntarily
enable this extra funtionality would be a fair compromise.  Sound

Thanks for the bug report and for the suggestions.
