Edit ~/.config/openbox/lxde-rc.xml with your favorite text editor and then, within the existing <keyboard> element, add the following lines: <keybind key="Print"> <action name="Execute"> <command>scrot</command> </action> </keybind> Use the openbox --reconfigure command to use the new settings. ...

But shouldn't it have been sourced during the graphical login? There's a minor debate about that on which some graphical logins take an unusual stance... I add $HOME/bin to $PATH from ~/.profile. However, it seems it is not sourced during login. I use a login manager - lxdm I think Correct. Most DM's do read ~/.profile when you log in. However, ...

On LXDE ~/.config/openbox/lxde-rc.xml config is used instead. To check how openbox was started you can do: $ ps ax | grep openbox 2109 ? S 0:29 openbox --config-file /home/marcin/.config/openbox/lxde-rc.xml

Openbox will give the functionality you are looking for to windows whose _OB_APP_TYPE property is set to "desktop" (You can use obxprop to check the properties of a window). So we need to set the _OB_APP_TYPE for your terminator window to "desktop" so that this will happen. Reading through the openbox source code, in client.c I could see that _OB_APP_TYPE ...

I don't have Lubuntu installed to test but maybe: To configuration file ~/.config/openbox/lubuntu-rc.xml adding the lines below : <!-- Option to maximize all normal window when launched--> <application type="normal"> <maximized>true</maximized> </application> Removal of this was suggested as a way to STOP it from doing so ...

I doubt that LXDE vs GNOME will make a significant difference, but I don't have hard figures. I doubt less that the default configuration of LXDE and the default configuration of GNOME will make some difference. To keep power consumption down, turn off desktop effects (animations, anything 3D). Make sure you're not running any kind of “screen saver”. Most ...

I found it - the "Default font" combo is (mis)placed in the "Widget" tab. I really don't understand why they didn't put it in the "Font" tab.

This can be done easily by creating a .desktop file for each application you would like to add to the menu. This is all explained clearly in the LXDE wiki for the main menu1. *.desktop Locations If you want the application to appear in menus for all users on a system, add the file to the directory /usr/share/applications/. For example, you may have /usr/...

Give the command ps aux | grep gnome-shell It will give the output /usr/bin/gnome-shell --wayland --display-server If Wayland is active.

There's no reason why sourcing a file, with the standard sourcing command, that is . not source (which is a cshism also supported by tcsh, bash, ksh and zsh but not standard) wouldn't work from .xsessionrc. You have to make sure the syntax in the sourced file is standard sh syntax.

First a couple of terms which will help you to understand this issue in particular and other things in general WRT a linux GUI: Window Manager (WM) Desktop Environment (DE) Someone should really write a simple, canonical explanation of these in a linux context...anyway, the base windowing system generally used on *nix systems (including linux) is the ...

It turned out that lightdm (the login manager LXDE now uses) does not source ~/.profile. What worked for me was creating ~/.xsessionrc: if [ -d $HOME/bin ]; then export PATH="$HOME/bin:$PATH" fi You can also add this to /etc/X11/Xsession.d/90userbinpath if you want all user to benefit from this (each user would benefit for his own path) with a system-...

AFAICT, you are right in attributing the system tray icon to notification-daemon. If you are not happy with the icon, try another notification daemon. Notifications work on the basis of client server. Any notification client can communicate with any compatible server. I myself am using dunst and I am very happy with that. It does not have any system tray ...

Yes, something like it currently exists, but it is not the same resize grip in the corner that is used in gtk themes. Something like that would need to be coded into openbox. Add a Handle In your themerc for the theme you are using, you can set window.handle.width to a number of pixels and handle will appear below the window1. The handle includes diagonal ...

Short answer: aptitude install lxde xorg will do. Longer answer: The aptitude show command will show you a description of a package and its dependencies from the command line, so you can use that to decide whether to install the package or not. Keep in mind that aptitude and apt-get have automated dependency resolution, so package lxde will install ...

Right click on an existing application shortcut in the panel and you will get a context menu with "Application Launch Bar Settings" at the top, this is what you want. If you do not have any existing shortcuts preset... I do not know.

There is also $ openbox --restart Since it was not mentioned yet, I will do it. This will not restart X as well. Presumably --restart is "more powerful" than --reconfigure.

Two things to check for: Port 6000 needs to be open on the 222 machine (configure or disable the firewall), and the X server itself needs to be listening on that port. This is often disabled in modern distros. Check if it's listening with # netstat -nltp | grep 6000 tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:6000 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 10818/Xorg ...

Apparently, it was the entry in ~/.config/openbox/lxde-rc.xml. Logging out and back in wasn't enough for some reason, but I rebooted and now my F11 key is back in action.

The applet for the Battery Monitor plugin does not use a simple icon. It draws a 2D vector graphic using the Cairo library. You can only edit the panel item's appearance within the limits provided by the plugin, which does not currently include an option for replacing it with an icon. It's normal that themes do not affect this panel item's appearance ...

A disadvantage to twm is that it does not appear to implement extended window manager hints (EWMH). This is not necessary to running contemporary apps, but many of them may exploit this (and I believe the GTK and Qt libraries may, also) -- for example "fullscreen mode" will require this in many cases, and apps that arrange themselves in particular ways ...

There is no option to change the appearance for the active window in lxpanel's Task Bar (Window List) plugin. You can patch the lxpanel source file launchtaskbar.c in the most recent version, LX Panel 0.7.1. - LXDE - Lightweight X Desktop Environment - Browse /LXPanel (desktop panel) at SourceForge.net For example, you could make the active window use bold ...

Your notification daemon has probably not been started. Try to start it by hand with: /usr/lib/notification-daemon/notification-daemon If you have a properly started daemon, you might have hit this bug, which causes the daemon to crash.

That icon has nothing, nothing to do with libnotify, nor dbus. This is entirely dependent of your DM/WM (I'm guessing cinnamon, but could be wrong) and dbus/libnotify can't do anything to control it. For comparison: XFCE doesn't use such icon, and I'm aware that GNOME Shell does show a icon independently what method you use. If you need to get rid of the ...

you could try the jupiter applet, its a power management applet for laptops and netbooks, very very handy to get longer battery life,i use it in ubuntu, but its also meant to be supported in Fedora 14, have a look here http://www.fewt.com/2011/01/jupiter-applet-gets-its-own-home.html

That's an lxterminal bug. It doesn't show in other shells because zsh is nice enough to try and show you hidden characters showed by the previous command when you don't include a trailing newline before issuing a prompt. If you type echo -n foo, you'll see foo%. The % indicates that there was no newline character. Above, what happens is that lxterminal ...

On my computer (111): ssh -X 192.168.0.222 followed simply by: xclock will run xclock on the other computer (222) and display on my computer (111). Note: For this to work X11Forwarding should be enabled in /etc/ssh/sshd_config at computer (222)

Here's the answer http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1920761&highlight=double+click It's a separate setting for java programs (netbeans for example). For that create a file called .Xresources and/or .Xdefaults. Add to both of them this line *.multiClickTime: 750. 750ms is the double click speed. You're welcome.

In the file .config/lxpanel/LXDE/panels/panel you can find the following stanza: Plugin { type = menu Config { image=/usr/share/lxde/images/lxde-icon.png system { } separator { } item { command=run } separator { } item { image=gnome-logout ...

1) Right click on the panel and select "Add/Remove panel items". 2) Select "Application Launch Bar" in "panel applets" sub menu and click "Add". 3) This pops up a window with options to select items from. Again select "Application Launch Bar" from the options and click "Add". 4) This adds a blank "application launch bar" generally at the right end of the ...
