Re: Configuring LXDM to display date and time

Yes, there is:
You edit /etc/lxdm/lxdm.conf.
SInce the greeter is gtk based, you should probably change the theme to a dark one (with light text, for a dark background).

Re: Flickering and thumbnail problems

Hello edward, I am a moderator here and accidentally edited your post instead of quoting it.
Now I cannot remember anymore what you originally wrote, and cannot restore it anymore.
The bits of original text I still remember, I left there.
I am very sorry.

Re: Need a help

here's a "Manage Networks" lxpanel applet that has up/dn speeds as a tooltip.
If that isn't enough you will have to resort to sth like conky or gkrellm.

Re: How to permanently change screen resolution?

So you just need to re-apply your custom settings after every login?
Go to
Preferences => Default Applications => Autostart
and add the command that does what you want.

BTW, is this "monitor" a TV?

Re: Fensterposition und Größ erinnern?

Welches Programm?

Aber eigentlich sollte das einfach "von selbst" funktionieren, es sei denn das Fenster ist "Maximiert".
Ach, und manche Programme sträuben sich dagegen und beharren darauf immer die Gleiche Fenstergrösse wiederherzustellen. Also, welches Programm?

Re: LXDE 4.6 Desktop Shortcuts

1) What desktop icons are available and where are they located? 2) Is it necessary to left click then press enter to execute? Can it be set to a double click? 1) That's a complex matter, it depends on the icon theme amongst other things. You use an icon chooser for that, try 'yad-icon-browser' (you...

Re: lxterminal: selchars not taken into account

I recently moved from LXTerminal V0.2.0 to V0.3.2, and I noticed that a non-standard choice of "selchars" (the expression which specifies the set of characters that make up a "word" from a double-click) is apparently not any more taken into account as it was in the older version...
