i installed openbox for the first time , i dont feel like it now , i have mate , how to i completely uninstall openbox guide me guys
First switch to mate so that you don’t uninstall your active de and then use -Rs the same way you used -S to install.
Also remove ~/.config/openbox to remove all the config files.
That is if you are not going back to use openbox again.
do i just type pacman -Rs openbox
okay , but will it create the config file again if i use openbox in the future ?
You will need to build it up again following the instructions here for example:
Or EnOS’ Openbox community edition:
If you like the way you have already set it up, so leave it as it is.
and as @archbtw suggested , i just wanna confirm , i just type sudo pacman -Rns openbox right ?
First logout from your Openbox session and login to your Mate DE as mentioned by @archbtw.
thank you sooooo much
wiki a wonderful thing
it says " could not prepare transaction ( could not satify dependencies) removing openbox removes dependency ‘openbox’ required by obconf
edit : i am really sorry for being annoying and dumb but plz help…
This guy gets it!
Also - If I were me, and I had such a new install - I would just start over with a fresh install anyway to make sure you clear everything unnecessary.
Remove obconf first.
If you ever decide to install lxqt… it czn interfere witj old openbox config if its stil there
