This may have already been answered elsewhere and I may have just missed it. If so, please just redirect me there.
My question is this: Is it possible to use XFWM and still keep the default CB setup that #! installed with (I've kinda gotten used to it and have it set up more or less to my liking).
If it is, then: How would one go about installing it and setting it as the default WM?
I ask because I am still trying to get this (http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=27853) to work out for me.
On a side note, where can I find the compton config file? It's not in usr/share like I thought it would be.

The short answer is no. Unlike Openbox, XFWM4 doesn't like to run without a DE like XFCE4 underneath it. That said, XFCE4 itself is fairly lightweight, and an XFCE/XFWM desktop can, with some work, be configured to look & feel a lot like Openbox.

Actually, yes. You can run XFWM4 standalone, but you won't have the right-click menu. For this to work, you would also need to have xfdesktop running.
It's a long time ago I tried this, though, so it may not work anymore.

So in short if I want XFWM, I need XFCE as well... Hmm... Ok. Well, that answers that. Thank you. Now on to Plan B.
The compton config is in ~/.config/compton.conf

Thank you for the Compton information. I can at least tweak that tonight while I decide what Plan B will actually be. Ha ha. I like my OB set up, but I'm afraid I will have to make it go away in order to progress with my WM interface design. Anyway, thank you again.
