Playing with rounded corners: openbox-patched from AUR :slight_smile:

Installation:

yay openbox-patched

Then add this line to the <theme> section of your Openbox config ~/.config/openbox/rc.xml.

<cornerRadius>8</cornerRadius>

Is this something that would eventually make it to the official repo’s?

These patches are experimental and in my opinion such packages should not be in the official repositories. Arch User Repository (AUR) seems an appropriate place for them.

I like it!

BTW, can the window have colored border?
Is there even such a setting?

EDIT
Yes, there is!

Colored window borders are part of Openbox theme.
No GUI for setting borders afaik.
There are 3 lines about window border in openbox themerc file:

window.active.border.color: #169f6f

window.inactive.border.color: #2c2c2c

border.width: 2

If you want to experiment with themes the best way is probably to copy theme to your home dir, like for example:

mkdir ~/.themes
cp -a /usr/share/themes/Mabox-superdesk/ ~/.themes/

Anyway windows borders does not look very good with Openbox with rounded corners patch.

Here is complete Openbox Theme specification

Is this with

border.width: 1

It looks like it’s 2 or 3 :thinking:

BTW, there is an app called obtheme where you can change everything…

border.width is 4 in screenshot :slight_smile:

I know obtheme app, very nice and works but unfortunately it is very old and does not recognize all theme elements.

Anyway definitely it is worth to play with it :slight_smile:

Playing with rounded corners: openbox-patched from AUR i have tested but it is not compatible anymore there is a conflict and it want to deleted openbox :sweat:

Sure, you can’t have both installed at the same time.
Just install normal openbox if you need it back - it will replace openbox-patched.

yay openbox
