What is everything needed to make cb-exit work in another distro?

I had used Crunchbang for a good while and really like the log out dialog that pops up. I beleive it is a python script called cb-exit. Personally I love Openbox but have moved on from Crunchbang looking for a distro that has newer packages. So I have moved to Archbang. The one thing I really miss though is the log out dialog. I was wondering if someone could help me figure out what I need to install to get cb-exit working on Archbang?

Re: What is everything needed to make cb-exit work in another distro?

I do not like "cb-exit". Why do not use the normal openbox-menu with the same entries (~/.config/openbox.menu.xml)?

For dependencies (python-gtk2, consolekit, upower). Hope Arch uses the same packages.

debian/control (in the tar-file):

Source: cb-exit
Section: misc
Priority: extra
Maintainer: Philip Newborough <corenominal@corenominal.org>
Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 5.0.0)
Standards-Version: 3.9.1
Homepage: http://crunchbang.org/

Package: cb-exit
Architecture: all
Depends: ${shlibs:Depends}, ${misc:Depends}, python-gtk2, consolekit, upower
Description: CrunchBang logout script.
GUI logout/shutdown/restart/suspend script.

If I'm not mistaken, cb-exit uses HAL, so it might be kinda wierd to implement it in arch. There are several other allternatives in the AUR, like oblogout and goodbye-git, have you tried using one of them?

Manjaro Openbox, another Arch distro, has adopted cb-exit.  It may be easier to steal it from them - I have not tried.

@CBiz:  I know you were just being CBiz, but I have to side with chillicampari on this; petrochemicals is new here, so there's no reason to expect him to pick up on your humor (Poe's Law) the way we do.

Awww shucks Damo and Unia .. thanks.  angel

@Op ... probably was having an off/impatient day, shrugs. Though he/she found something that works for em so all's well that end's well. Yeah should probably stick more to the old "if ya don't have nothing nice to say etc." Otherwise resist the urge to hit the submit button ... arghhh ! BAD biz ... Bad, bad !
