Implementing Rox and Rox pinboard in Crunchbang

I have to say at the start that I enjoy using Puppy Linux (Lucid). The reason I use Crunchbang is mainly because of the stable Debian repos. Is there a way to configure Crunchbang so that when I start it up, I am using the Rox filer and Rox pinboard but still maintain the look and feel of Crunchbang? Conky and Tint2 are gems as far as I am concerned and are well implemented in #!. What I love about Rox is the speed, configurability and simplicity that work well for the work I do.

Looking forward to what you have to say. Thanks!!!  smile

Re: Implementing Rox and Rox pinboard in Crunchbang

this is really easy to do.
since rox does not provide its own window manager.
so you can keep on using openbox & autostart.
(just make sure you disable the thunar daemon, unless you want to use 2 file managers)
also you might want to replace thunar with rox in settings --> edit default applications (not sure about this. most distros have a gui tool for "favorite apps" or some such, not #! though).

and yes, rox rocks. fyi, many years ago it was the default DE for debian.

Could it be that to change default fm in #! you would need to go the Xdg-open way!?
