What was the error you got?

Openbox is not supported out-of-the-box by Variety, as there is no standard way for drawing the desktop there - it depends on your specific configuration. Basically for Variety to work in Openbox to work, you'll have to edit both the get_wallpaper and set_wallpaper scripts in ~/.config/variety/scripts.

Normally Variety works even if get_wallpaper results in an error, but you may be hitting https://bugs.launchpad.net/variety/+bug/1393136.

Can you help with this problem?
