hey guys me again :D

i decided to give full archlinux a shot. and im also trying to install gentoo , mainly to gain experience in doing it from scratch :D  ive learned alot like installing python. burg. etc

and ive got a perfectly well running archlinux setup with xfce, burg, plymouth, anime themes :D  yea it rocks and ive learned so much

But the one thing i cant figure out is this

I installed openbox normally as a seperate session, ofc i dont want to loose my XFCE setup

is it possable to copy CTKArchs installation/setup/config files into a current arch installation without causing issues. like messing up xfce, or the KDM Login etc

and get the main programs/panels/scripts/themes/configs etc that CTKArch offers ( which i love how u guys setup fbpanel and tint2 to switch with that script, thats impressive stuff )

like im afraid if i just go copy everything itll mess something up, like kdm , or the rc.conf

You can copy the configuration files from source,
Just copy the config files you are looking for. If you copy only the ones you are interested in, you won't mess your kdm or rc.conf.
scripts are loaded in .scripts, openbox themes in .themes, and so on.

thanks for the reply :D

thing is, im an openbox noob still haha :P  so im not exactly sure what files i need

basically i just want the right click menu, the look, themes of the panels and the script switching between the fbpanel and tint2

most of the installed programs, but ofcourse i have so of my own in xfce so id want a way to access them

and ofcourse PCManFM and the presetup desktop icons and the script to turn them on and off, and ofcourse the stuff that the menu has, like effects, transperancys, etc etc

so im not sure what files what with openbox, and if its all in one big config file, or multiple script files etc

Just copy the files (from the sources archive) in the home/arch directory to your personal home folder.

And please make an effort on the topic title next time.
