My favorites that I recall are 1) Infinality and 2) replacing console-kit with logind. I'm sure there are others that I'm not recalling, right now.

Well, my favorite is Cairo-Dock with a subdock. It's exactly what I needed at the bottom of the page. Love the application-launcher there and all the other apps.

Re: Favorite alterations you've done

  • Running pywo I can have both tiling and stacking without the drawbacks of either. Keyboard shortcuts collide with Blender so when blendering I switch off pywo.

  • I changed the keyboard shortcut for dmenu to alt-p. It is hard to break a habit... (Something like alt-space would make more ergonomical sense.)

  • I use the  Solarized colour scheme in editors and terminals.

Re: Favorite alterations you've done

Am I the only one who binds dmenu to the menu key?

Also, replace Openbox with dwm  ]:D

EDIT: And replace terminator with rxvt-unicode and replace BASH with zsh

Dunno, but I bind the Openbox main menu to the Menu key.

You need a menu key to do that...

Before today I didn't know there was such a thing  and now that do I notice my Microsoft-branded keyboard don't have one while the no-name keyboard for my secondary computer do.

Re: Favorite alterations you've done

Cairo-Dock used to be one of my favorites, but then xfce4-panel(12) implemented intelli-hide. So now it's probably that, and I really like lxdm instead of slim or lightdm.

What is the "Menu" key, please? And by "Openbox main menu" do you mean the one to display menu.xml's contents?

Keycode 0xff67

The symbol on the key looks like a menu list (or the old "hamburger" symbol that Windows is so fond of).

Yes, thanks! I figure it out using xev.

And I prefer to open the Openbox Main Menu at a fixed position on my screen (1366x768). For that I have a small script which provides a "mouse right-click" at specified position on my screen which is empty:

#!/usr/bin/env bash
xdotool mousemove 630 5
#sleep 0.2
xdotool mousemove 650 5
sleep 0.2
xdotool click 3
