Hey guys. I've stopped using a tiling WM as I run pretty much everything at fullscreen. I still use split Tmux panes for console activity though.

OS: Ubuntu Linux 12.10 (64 bit)

Everything other than the wallpaper is pretty much stock.

Wallpaper is a photograph my wife took of my son and I going for a hike while we were on an overnight camping trip (If you can call it a "trip", we own the property) this past weekend.

Got a new Samsung SyncMaster 2493HM 1920x1200 display. I'm rockin' Crunchbang with Openbox. Love Crunchbang! Not a problem, but the only annoying thing I've encountered was haveing to edit and add an application to your menu every time you install something new.

I really like Crunchbang's Openbox configuration, but the manual menu editing kinda annoyed me a little bit too. Fortunately there is an auto-updating menu available for Openbox in Debian. The installation procedure is described on the extensive Openbox page on the Debian wiki and again on the Crunchbang wiki. The Crunchbang procedure is a little more explicit (in that it has all the required steps neatly listed in one place, not spread out over and entire page) but both pages have very good information. That procedure worked for me; I hope it solves your problem too!
