I need a way to open a program in its standalone X server (for the RaspberryPi)...

Sadly I can't use startx directly with my app as a client because it has some weirdness...
startx /path/to/my/app

With Openbox, it works fine but I want to simulate the behaviour of startx, ie when the client exits, Openbox should exit too...

Is this possible?

Thanks :)

Why don't you just add killall openbox to your script? –  terdon Sep 10 '13 at 13:52
