How to start up into Crunchbang properly [SOLVED]

I think recently I installed another desktop environment to boot into. Since then I deleted it. But now when I boot into #!, if I don't press F1 to boot into my proper Openbox enviroment, I boot into what looks like a broken DE I used to have installed. How can I get rid of this so that when I start up Crunchbang it loads properly?

Is it something in my autostart file I have to delete?

## Openbox autostart.sh
## ====================
## When you login to your CrunchBang Openbox session, this autostart script 
## will be executed to set-up your environment and launch any applications
## you want to run at startup.
##
## Note*: some programs, such as 'nm-applet' are run via XDG autostart.
## Run '/usr/lib/openbox/openbox-xdg-autostart --list' to list any
## XDG autostarted programs.
##
## More information about this can be found at:
## http://openbox.org/wiki/Help:Autostart
##
## If you do something cool with your autostart script and you think others
## could benefit from your hack, please consider sharing it at:

## Have fun & happy CrunchBangin'! :)

## Turn on/off system beep
xset b off &

## The following command runs hacks and fixes for #! LiveCD sessions.
## Safe to delete after installation.
cb-cowpowers &

## cb-welcome - post-installation script, will not run in a live session and
## only runs once. Safe to remove.

It's nothing in the autostart file; that is Openbox's start-up config.
I'm not on my #! machine at the moment so can't remember exactly, but you may just need to look at /etc/slim.conf for a line that starts sessions : the first entry there is the default login, so openbox-session should appear first.

Re: How to start up into Crunchbang properly [SOLVED]

Is this the section you mean? I see the openbox session is not commented but I'm always booting into something else.

# Available sessions (first one is the default).
# The current chosen session name is replaced in the login_cmd
# above, so your login command can handle different sessions.
# see the xinitrc.sample file shipped with slim sources
#sessions            default,startxfce4,openbox,ion3,icewm,wmaker,blackbox,awesome
sessions            openbox-session

Re: How to start up into Crunchbang properly [SOLVED]

Hi there Randy,

Is it like a turquoise desktop, ugly as sin?  I ran into this when I was trying to add openbox to a netinstall.  There seems to be some basic desktop integrated into X that it goes to if it can't find anything else.  If you type "openbox-session" to start it, do you get any errors?

randy@cb11dv6:~$ sudo update-alternatives --config x-session-manager
[sudo] password for randy: 
There are 3 choices for the alternative x-session-manager (providing /usr/bin/x-session-manager).

  Selection    Path                      Priority   Status
------------------------------------------------------------
* 0            /usr/bin/startxfce4        50        auto mode
  1            /usr/bin/openbox-session   40        manual mode
  2            /usr/bin/startxfce4        50        manual mode
  3            /usr/bin/xfce4-session     40        manual mode

Press enter to keep the current choice[*], or type selection number

Re: How to start up into Crunchbang properly [SOLVED]

So I changed it to this:

  Selection    Path                      Priority   Status
------------------------------------------------------------
  0            /usr/bin/startxfce4        50        auto mode
* 1            /usr/bin/openbox-session   40        manual mode
  2            /usr/bin/startxfce4        50        manual mode
  3            /usr/bin/xfce4-session     40        manual mode

Press enter to keep the current choice[*], or type selection number: 1
randy@cb11dv6:~$ 
randy@cb11dv6:~$ 

Do I just restart my machine now? In the future if this happens again, is there a config file I can go into to change this or is this the proper way to do it?

Re: How to start up into Crunchbang properly [SOLVED]

Shouldn't be any need to do a full restart, just log out/in

"update-alternatives" is the way to do it, if it isn't working with slim.conf. (I think it is also available in the default menu: Settings->Edit default applications)

For all the options see

update-alternatives --all
