I recently installed Arch for the first time in VMWare Workstation 9.0.2, twice (I reinstalled to change some partition sizes). In the first installation I was able to start Openbox instead of X when running startx by copying xinitrc to my /home/user directory, and then simply adding "exec ck-launch-session dbus-launch openbox-session" to the end on both the xinitrc in my user folder as well as the one in /etc/X11/xinit. However, on the second installation, although modifying xinitrc in the same manner as the first time, X starts instead of Openbox after running startx. The end of both xinitrc files look like this:
twm & xclock -geometry 50x50-1+1 & xterm -geometry 80x50+494+51 & xterm -geometry 80x20+494-0 & exec xterm -geometry 80x66+0+0 -name login exec ck-launch-session dbus-launch openbox-session
Does anyone know what the issue is?
