Hi all, I'm trying to make Kali autologin as root and default to OpenBox. Kali is installed vm.

I'm able to autologin to the default window manager (gnome3?) but I'm unable to set the default to OpenBox - I have tried xinitrc, xsession, modifying /etc/gdm but so far nothing has worked.

Switching default WM shouldn't be this difficult, I have had no issue with other flavors of Linux (Ubuntu, CentOS, Gentoo, Mint), and given that this ignores xinitrc/xsession I'm wondering if this should be considered a bug...
