Wow, ten years later there was no response to this.  I tried it now and I have to admit it has been the poorest openbox installation I have ever tried.  Maybe I should reinstall because too many things in openbox didn't work and I couldn't find a rational explanation for them.  Same things did work on xfce.

Considering this was a build for a VL version that has long since expired, trying to install this particular package would have been foolhardy at best.

Please stop necroing ancient posts. They'll have absolutely no bearing on today's versions of VL, which is a completely different animal from 10 years ago.
