[NOT A BUG]Script errors

Hi!

The two last lines in /usr/share/bunsen/skel/.config/openbox/environment says:

## Modify xdg-open behaviour
export XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=XFCE

Should that not be openbox?

No. It is correct as-is.

Openbox is not a well-supported 'desktop environment', becaues it isn't a desktop environment. This variable gives the XDG subsystem and applications that use it hints on how to behave correctly. The behaviour targetting the XFCE desktop has proven itself to be the most desirable.

A lot of freedeskop.org-integrated softwares (like xdg-open) have special cases depending on the desktop environment used; they of course handle major desktops like GNOME, KDE, XFCE but not random window managers like Openbox. You may set it to Openbox (or Unity, or Awesome, or i3) as a test and observe the effects.
