It turns out it was the current day being highlighted causing the problem. I was able to fix it by turning highlighting off (cal -h)

As jasonwryan says, you can use xseticon to set the icon of windows. If you want to do this automatically, you can use Devil's Pie. I created a small script that sets a window's icon based on the current GNOME icon theme (it can easily be adapted to work with KDE). Here it is. The corresponding Devil's Pie configuration looks like: (spawn_sync ...

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" ...

I found that the responsible of this is the gnome-settings-daemon. /usr/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon

If I get the question correctly then your question is like this: whenever you click on ToggleShowDesktop then you want all open application to get minimized except terminator. If this is so then you can achieve this by writing a wrapper script, which will internally call two commands #!/bin/sh xdotool key "super+d" wmctrl -a "terminator" Replace the ...

I came up with the following script which looks like it solves your problems. #!/bin/sh make_wid_desktop_app() { # set the type of the window to xprop -id $1 -f _NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE 32a -set _NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE _NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE_DESKTOP xprop -id $1 -f _MOTIF_WM_HINTS 32c -set _MOTIF_WM_HINTS 0 xprop -id $1 -remove _MOTIF_WM_HINTS } ...

Regarding the pros and cons: I'd say use openbox without Gnome. That way you don't get saddled with all the Gnome stuff and it is easier to be picky about what things you want/need. Gnome is less 'modular'.... What right-clicking does is set in the rc.xml file; for me that brings up the root-menu (is that what you mean by 'context menu'?). Easy to ...

This question is very old, but you need to remove the line from /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart that is starting pcmanfm. The right-click menu you see there is not from openbox, but from the pcmanfm desktop window.

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 was experiencing a similar problem. It turned out that it was caused by ibus. I simply uninstalled it as I don't need its services. I found the culprit by using your trick of replacing setxkbmap by a script, however I also added ps -AF --forest to identify the caller of setxkbmap.
