I'm experiencing the same problem. Was running standard Ubuntu 17.10 with gnome. Wanted to try out openbox. Ran 'sudo apt-get install openbox obconf' Logged out, restarted, logged in.
Haven't spent much time on it because of the window issue. Have noticed I also get an error box "Invalid output from pipe-menu -i lxde-applications.menu" when I pull up the right click menu and move the mouse to "Applications". -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1733125 Title: desktop background does not refresh To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openbox/+bug/1733125/+subscriptions -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
