Deli & OpenBox
Experimental, but the first signs are good Smile

No fancy backgrounds or panels, just plain openbox.

It's always nice to see people who know how to deal with .xinitrc :]
Once it is marked as stable, we could add it in the list of supported WMs :]

RE: Deli & OpenBox
Well the .xinitrc wasn't the hardest part :]
And it's pretty stable (no crashes or something), but I have to figure some things out. This package is without the xinerema dependency. I don't know yet why they're using it. I've got an excuse for not knowing that, I've not that much compiling experience and with installing openbox after a cli installation with 'sudo apt get install xorg openbox menu' you'll never get much information Smile So I'm learning a lot the past weeks.

RE: Deli & OpenBox
Today I've played a while with Delicate and Openbox.
It's stable, but as basic as can be. :]
No themes, no backgrounds, no configuration tool.
Some manual things need to be done after this.
That's usual with openbox, you have to copy the usr/etc/xdg/openbox map to your .config dir.

Code:
# Maintainer: Theo - nl2stk

pkgname=openbox
pkgver=3.4.5
pkgrel=1
pkgdesc="OpenBox, a lightweight window manager for X11"
url="http://icculus.org/openbox/"
license=('GPL')
depends=('libxml2'
'libxrandr'
'libxfont'
'pango'
'libxext'
'glib2'
'libxcursor')
source=(http://www.icculus.org/openbox/releases/$pkgname-$pkgver.tar.gz)
md5sums=('06e007ef96ab3f7f4bbc34c4464af6c2')

build() {
  cd $startdir/src/$pkgname-$pkgver
  ./configure --prefix=/usr --build=$CHOST --host=$CHOST
  make || return 1
  make DESTDIR=${pkgdir}/ install || return 1
}

It's without xinerama support (multiple monitors).
ObConf is not included (that's another compile I guess)

RE: Deli & OpenBox
A small update. I've tried to make a ObConf package, but it's not working... It seems that it's missing a package 'libstartup notification-1.0' And the message is that I should consider to adjust the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if I installed software in a non-standard prefix.

An alternative is to set the environment variables STARTUP_CFLAGS and STARTUP_LIBS to avoid the need to call the pkg-config.

Considering that I'm not a linux-expert, it takes some time to figure that one out. :]

It is not that important.
It was more like an experiment, just to see of it works with Delicate
And it does... :]

And there is nothing wrong with the *standard* IceWM window manager.
As far as I know (I've done some network installations with Debian/Ubuntu with different window managers) IceWm is one of the lightest non-tiling WM.
Fluxbox/OpenBox/PekWM/JWM/FvwM are using a bit more memory. No big difference, just a couple of mb's. The only WM that I'm not sure about is WindowMaker.
