cannot change window titles appearance with GTK theme

I cannot change window titles appearance with GTK themes. Meantime,
other parts of windows change, except titles. Titles change only from
openbox themes (set in Obconf). Is there a way to change titles thru GTK
themes either?
Thanks ahead.

No, there's no way. Actually, you cannot change the window titles with
pure Gtk themes, unless you have a full GNOME theme which includes the
appropriate Metacity/Mutter settings.

Openbox doesn't use any Gtk settings, it's completely independent from
it. The only graphical way to change the Openbox appearance is OBconf.
But it's possible to integrate themes directly into a GNOME theme
package because both the Gtk and Openbox stuff reside in ~/.themes.

Best Regards,
Mario

Much thanks.
There's some information in ArchWiki how to configure GTK themes in
Openbox and I didn`t think that information was misleading.
Thanks again.

Multihead Openbox: Wrong screen placement when opening window

Hi all,


I am relatively new to openbox, but it is awesome. Thanks and keep up the great work! Anyway, I have a 4 monitor setup and it seems that whenever I open a new window in openbox, the monitor on which it is opened is inconsistent. Sometimes it will appear on the monitor my cursor is currently in. Other times it will appear in an unused monitor. And even other times it will appear in a seemingly random monitor.

Can anyone advise how window placement works when opening a new window in a multi-head setup? It is inconvenient when it, for example, opens a monitor on the projector behind me rather than on the main monitor I am using. Is there anyway to just have all new windows appear in whichever monitor the mouse is currently in? This seems like a better approach since the user would presumably launch the window from the screen where they are working with their mouse (or terminal from which they are launching a new GUI), which would be where they would want it to land.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

The sample rc.xml contains the following (especially ´"monitor" is
interesting for you):
<placement>
  <policy>Smart</policy>
  <!-- 'Smart' or 'UnderMouse' -->
  <center>yes</center>
  <!-- whether to place windows in the center of the free area found or
       the top left corner -->
  <monitor>Primary</monitor>
  <!-- with Smart placement on a multi-monitor system, try to place new windows
       on: 'Any' - any monitor, 'Mouse' - where the mouse is, 'Active' - where
       the active window is, 'Primary' - only on the primary monitor -->
  <primaryMonitor>1</primaryMonitor>
  <!-- The monitor where Openbox should place popup dialogs such as the
       focus cycling popup, or the desktop switch popup.  It can be an index
       from 1, specifying a particular monitor.  Or it can be one of the
       following: 'Mouse' - where the mouse is, or
                  'Active' - where the active window is -->
</placement>

Cheers
Andreas

kickshaw


DL'ed and installed Kickshaw, an openbox menu editor...but it doesn't 
like my menu.xml file and refuses to load it.
The thing is the file is syntactically correct...and loads and can be 
modified by obment without problems.

Does anyone know the authors email address, and where to report bugs?

   Filed a bug there ( but it seems to be a very quiet site) and also 
got his email address and wrote him.
Thanks

    That was quick....email to his address bounced. He is apparently 
unreachable.
