LXAppearance – OpenBox Integration is Finished!

Since LXAppearance now supports plugins, it’s possible to add new features to it with third party plugins. Today I ported the GUI configuration tool for OpenBox obconf to LXAppearance. Now a plugin for seamless OpenBox integration is available.

A picture is worth a thousand words:

No additional dependencies are added to LXAppearance. You get this “Window Border” page and the openbox support only when the plugin is installed. In addition, the plugin won’t be loaded if openbox is not in use. Perfect!

The source code is here for the brave:

Note: Ubuntu 10.04 users cannot get this correctly compiled and linked due to a bug of Ubuntu 10.04. The bug will be fixed in Ubuntu 10.10. So don’t bug report to me if it doesn’t compile/link on Ubuntu 10.04. That’s normal.

Cheers!
