1. gpasswd -a MYNAME wheel
2. uncomment in /etc/sudoers:
%wheel ALL=(ALL) ALL %wheel ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL
3. remove "ck-launch-session "
exec dbus-launch openbox-session

Permission error combined with dbus update, thanks for posting your solution.

i have same problem , i did . gpasswd -a cirrus wheel (cirrus added to group) ,then i uncommented both entries in /etc/sudoers , and checking xinitrc for "ck-launch-session " tho i came up empty it was not in there , after editing the sudoers and rebooting i could only boot to CLI however an fsck got me back in X , yet im still unable to edit rc.conf through openbox menu, should i just recomment both entries and just edit rc.conf via nano,fileman ??

You should have user created and set up during install if you have added a new user since then yes you need to add groups..
check .xinitrc notice the '.' in front of file [means hidden] post what you find
TY Mr Green heres my rc.conf # and i am the only user on this box , strange thing on 2 other AB installs that have had the same update methods it seems to work on them ?

with nano ,export VISUAL=nano; visudo , and it seems the changes have stuck too.
heres an excerpt
## Runas alias specification
## User privilege specification
root ALL=(ALL) ALL
## Uncomment to allow members of group wheel to execute any command
%wheel ALL=(ALL) ALL
## Same thing without a password
%wheel ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL
(edit) i just resorted to editing the obmenu all good)
