Comment 1 Michael Vetter 2019-02-27 09:57:15 UTC

The correct behaviour is:

If exactly one WM is found -> use that WM.
If several possible WMs are found, and none are set as default -> display dialog:


https://openqa.opensuse.org/tests/863145#step/reboot_icewm/8 shows that Icewm, Openbox and Twm are installed.

https://github.com/lxqt/lxqt-session/commit/6d8753f6b0cbb379e4a0668eb0152702e9c1abde shows that Openbox is not set as default WM by them anymore and that they want the user to configure the WM upon first run now.

Personally I would leave it as is and let the user choose the WM upon first start.
We could also default to Openbox, but currently we only have it as Recommends, which I think makes sense so users can choose to install any other WM instead.

@Dominique, what do you think?
Comment 2 Michael Vetter 2019-02-27 09:59:37 UTC
bug#1099800 was about changing the location of the default configuration files. Where we use https://build.opensuse.org/package/view_file/X11:LXQt/lxqt-session/lxqt-0.13.0-xdg-config-dir.patch. So it's something different now.
Comment 3 Michael Vetter 2019-02-27 10:26:44 UTC
If we set Openbox as default WM in session config, and a user installs the LXQt pattern without Recommends, thus omitting Openbox from being installed, the ChooseWMDialog is shown anyways. So I will prepare a patch to set Openbox as default.
