Window placement, geometry and preferred desktop on program startup.

I'm not sure what file to edit. Usually it's rc.xml but I don't know how it works with bunsenlabs.

Also, you're Subject title is well specified but your OP tells us almost nothing.

Openbox still manages the windows, so you will edit the applications section of the rc.xml file to define application preferences (i.e xterm maximized on desktop 4).

Re: Window placement, geometry and preferred desktop on program startup.

In a BunsenLabs session the file is ~/.config/openbox/bl-rc.xml
The changed name is so a default rc.xml can also exist for vanilla openbox sessions.

So there are possibly two files to edit, depending on which session the user will be logging into, or just to maintain consistency?:

Bunsenlabs Session
This is the default:

....

The menu is run with jgmenu, keybinds for commands are set by xbindkeys, and Openbox keybinds are set with bl-rc.xml.

Openbox Session
This is provided as a legacy for those users who wish to recreate their old Helium setup (specifically, so that users can have a separate Openbox setup). ~/.config/openbox/autostart is a template, and any autostart settings need to be added.

The menu is set with ~/.config/openbox/menu.xml, and keybinds with ~/.config/openbox/rc.xml.

For BunsenLabs there's bl-rc.xml
BL users just have to edit that one file.

People who also want to configure another openbox session can use the "vanilla" OB config files. BL no longer ships rc.xml but users might have legacy files left over from earlier BL or CrunchBang systems. They can copy over any settings they want to keep of course.

So only users who want two independent sessions have to edit two different files. smile

(Lxde - and maybe lxqt - do the same, so their sessions could also co-exist with BL or default OB.)
