I may have the solution for you, but to test if it will be the solution for you, then do the following:Right-click at your desktop, choose "Settings", then "Compositor" and "Disable Compositing". If the icons now look as they are supposed to, then enable compositing again (Settings-Compositor-Enable Compositing).Does the icons still look good?

I've managed to disable compton from drawing shadows on tint2 by adding this to compton.conf .shadow-exclude = [ "tint2" ];Problem is if I reboot the shadows show up again until I restart compton, I am not sure but I think this might be due to compton being initialized before tint2 ? How should I work around this ?
Hi Nikki,Try adding those xrandr settings to your openbox autostart script above the nitrogen and compositor lines.You can find it through the settings menu: settings --> openbox --> edit autostartMake sure you add an "&" after each command so you don't mess up any of the other autostart applications.That should set up your external monitor properly when you login and you

Ctrl/Alt/f2 doesn't work, and I have to power off to get it going again.Remember that Openbox has no panel and no desktop icons, so even if your screen was blank it might have been working fine.
