Unfortunately I'm not actively maintaining it any more. I instead made a new window manager called Wingo that is similar to Openbox, but has dynamic workspaces, automatic tiling and, as in openbox-multihead, proper multihead support. It's in the AUR: --- There's also a thread for it:

Hi there,

I would love to try this modification to have proper dual-monitor support. That is, an external monitor or presenter mapped to desktop 2.

Is this package still up to date and does it fetch the latest updates from Openbox?

Apparently the package 'docbook-to-man' does not exist anymore, which is a build dependency for this package. The package builds fine when you change this dependency to point at 'docbook2x'.

@burntsushi - do you have any plans to merge with the code from release-3.5.2 tag?

Here's an updated PKGBUILD:

I guess the "usr" in the backup line of the PKGBUILD is not intended:
backup=('usr/etc/xdg/openbox/menu.xml' 'usr/etc/xdg/openbox/rc.xml')

Thank you for providing this nice package! :-)

I've added the which-2.20.patch, title-matching.patch and moveresize.patch patches that are included in the Arch repo for Openbox. (I've added them upstream.)

I whitelisted the github IP, sorry for the troubles. :-)

Ah, pgl was blocking github somehow.
