Thx for the tip, I've gone ahead and installed openbox from the git repo.
It seems to work but not very reliably, in fact it works only with one
program ( lilyterm , and even with that, not always ) but not with :
mousepad, firefox, geany or chrome .
is there any log files or anything I can look into in order to find out why
it's not working?
