Re: [Solved] How to switch between Openbox and Fluxbox?

I don't get it; if both fluxbox and openbox have a "replace" option, you shouldn't need "killall *box" at all.

Fluxbox doesn't have the "--replace" option.

I think the --replace option is actually xfce.

Openbox has "--replace" as an option; it's in the man page. I think it is used to replace the window managers for Gnome and KDE, as well as, Xfce.

I don't think fluxbox has it; if it does, it's undocumented.

Re: [Solved] How to switch between Openbox and Fluxbox?

Yep:) everything is good now.  Can freely switch between openbox and fluxbox with windows open, just like you are switching themes instead of window managers.
Building now, and will hopefully push later this evening.

I can't decide if it's sad that I like sitting here and toggling this back and forth. Lol.  Okay, I'm going to the woods for a while. Thank you everybody. Don't know what's next. but it should be fun!

*edit - Changed the title to reflect the situation better.

From the man who spent 4 hours (so far, I'm just getting started) setting up an openbsd-cwm session on a Buster Cinnamon system...

Yes, very sad.
