Description: Ubuntu Wily Werewolf (development branch)
Release: 15.10

I expected this to work like a few times before when doing test installs and I noticed a small problem with the installer and was able to run ubuntu-bug from lxterminal launching from the context menu to easily report bugs from the installer without switching to a tty and exporting DISPLAY or opening Firefox which works from the menu downloading a file on the local filesystem and opening the containing folder to pcmanfm open and then use the applications menu to open a terminal and launch ubuntu-bug. I don't think for end users not reporting from the installer this has any problems.

Workaround 2 to launch ubuntu-bug without exporting display. switch to a tty and run cp ~/.config/openbox/lubuntu-rc.xml ~/.config/openbox/rc.xml switch back to tty 7 right click over the root window and select reconfigure for openbox. Then press control alt D to launch pcmanfm and from applicatoins menu launch a terminal.

Hmm one reason for this wierdness is that it appears that when launched choosing install from the menu pgrep -a openbox lists

openbox --config-file /openbox/lubuntu-rc.xml the normal place for this config file when using lxsession. It does not appear to be loading this file right as /openbox as a full path does not exist. But when logged into lxde normally openbox is launched with ~/.config/openbox/lubuntu-rc.xml.
