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 ...

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. ...

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 ...

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

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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, ...

As warl0ck noted, LXDE uses openbox as the WM, so you may just have a problem in your configuration settings. Hopefully these LXDE file locations should get you back on course: The config files of LXPanel are stored in ~/.config/lxpanel/. Under LXDE, we use a different profile name - LXDE. So it's in ~/.config/lxpanel/LXDE. In this way, if you changed the ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

Thunderbird, as a GTK+ application, supports a --class command-line option that sets the WM_CLASS property: $thunderbird --class TEST & $obxprop | grep 'OB_APP' _OB_APP_TYPE(UTF8_STRING) = "normal" _OB_APP_TITLE(UTF8_STRING) = "Mozilla Thunderbird" _OB_APP_GROUP_CLASS(UTF8_STRING) = "TEST" _OB_APP_GROUP_NAME(UTF8_STRING) = "thunderbird" ...

Apparently LXDE doesn't have a proper session manager. However as you've mentioned we can use the autostart file. All we need to do is create a dynamic list of the programs we are running before we exit the desktop. Here is a little bash script I whipped up that will parse the children of the root X11 window looking for apps to add to the autostart file. ...

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.

go to system>preference>mouse, in the "double-click timeout" section set the double-click speed. there is more advanced ways to configure it but it seems this one can resolve your problem.

See this post. You have to modify /etc/xdg/openbox/rc.xml and "smartly" remove all the tags matching a "ShowMenu" command. This will completely disable the OpenBox menus (all of them), but you can adapt it to your needs, as the file contents are pretty intuitive. You can also modify a copy of this file under ~/.config/openbox/rc.xml to make the changes only ...

Maybe try adding a setxkbmap command such as this - @setxkbmap -option "compose:menu" to ~/.config/lxsession/LXDE/autostart and restart your session.

Because your current theme doesn't support GTK-3, i.e a gtk-3.0 folder in the themes directory, all gtk3 based app will look ugly (the default builtin theme), So simply goto gnome-looks.org and find some awesome theme (in the gtk-3.0 category, which will support both gtk2 and gtk3), and put it to ~/.themes/ To change the theme, use lxappearance

Though this is a bad idea yes it is possible. The fastest method would be to do a Ctl+Alt+F1 and login as root. If there is no root password then login as a regular user and do the sudo su. After that you can use top to find and kill the xserver. Lastly run startx which should put you at a graphical desktop. This is a very bad idea. If you need to run ...

Try gdevilspie, match lxterminal window, and auto-maximizing, Just an example on how it works (with gnome-terminal), first hit on 'Get' and select the LXterminal, And in actions, select 'maximize', save the rule. So any time you start LXterminal, it would start maximized. Last thing you need to make sure if daemon is running at start:

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)

I'm not the expert in X11 and even Linux, but I heard that OS X implementation of Xorg Server doesn't support some required extensions for visually rich UI. Or may be transparency (and other effects) in Linux can only be achieved with composition manager (such as xcompmgr, Compiz, etc.) on client side, so they can not transfer them over network based X11 ...

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

Simple, copy files like /usr/share/applications/XX.desktop, to ~/.local/share/applications, And remove the unnecessary mimetypes, from the Mimetype= line (You might need to re-login, not sure if LXDE reloades them automatically)

You should see the output from your program in ~/.xsession-errors. If you want to run the command in a terminal itself you have to install a terminal which allows you to specify the command to be executed (most of them should support it), i.e. for xterm you can run: xterm -e python /path/to/script and place it in your autostart file.
