Re: Crashed X server

Um, do you have a prompt? You could type startx and see if that gets it going again.

Re: Crashed X server

Ran that, and it gave me an error saying that it can't find any screens.  I think the problem is something that I did in the openbox autostart.sh file.  Can you please give me the directory for it so I can try editing it in nano?

Re: Crashed X server

OK, but for future reference it's in your home directory under home/(yourname)/.config/openbox/autostart (no .sh)

What were you doing when it crashed?
