Re: Windows and desktop icons dissappear

Since the desktop icons are also provided py pcmanfm, I have to assume that pcmanfm crashes. Which distro (also version) and desktop environment (LXDE presumably)? Which version of pcmanfm? Is this the only problem you experience? Is your system up-to-date? After the crash try to execute the followi...

Re: Task Bar pushing all other items off of panel after update

No, the task bar settings seem to be in order.
I have to assume that the rest of the panel stretches over to the second monitor, and is currently covered by a terminal.
Please also show us the Geometry tab of Pamel Preferences.

Re: lxhotkey + Midnight Commander => can not get this to work

I never use lxhotkey because I always edit rc.xml directly but I'm pretty sure all you need to supply is a working command. If it needs to be executed in a terminal (like mc), you either need a command that launches the terminal, and then mc in it, or maybe lxhotkey has a checkbox for "run in termin...

Re: New Xorg gestures

Again, LXDE is a desktop environment. If it runs on top of Xorg then yes, Xorg supports xf86-* drivers.
It seems you are asking if there's a gui utility do modify libinput settings?
There's lxinput, but it's possible it does not support what you want.
There's xinput-gui, maybe it'll do better.

Re: New NTFS drivers

Sorry but this has nothing to do with LXDE. You should ask your distro's forum.

Re: Running LXDE over X11. Taskbar setting is "out of reach"

I have no idea what XQuartz is; maybe you need to adjust your screen settings/resolution somehow.

Re: How to use keyboard as mouse in lubuntu 21.10 ?

IMO, what you really need is some sort of accessibility software (usually for people that cannot, for whatever reasons, operate a mouse or touchpad). Here's a Ubuntu solution. most likely GNOME-specific: https://help.ubuntu.com/stable/ubuntu-help/mouse-mousekeys.html.en - maybe something similar is ...

Re: Restore Default Panel

I manage to remove the panel accidentally and struggled to get it back like it was. Is there a way to store the default panel? The panel I am referring to is the one at the bottom of the desktop. In windows, it is called the taskbar. Have you tried simply restarting it? Or, have you logged out and ...

Re: Shortcut for Lightdm restart

Chances are your raspberry Pi's OS uses systemd, so the first command is right.
Have you tried entering that command without sudo? Maybe it'll work.
If not, you have to find a way to enter the password graphically - try "sudo -A systemctl restart lightdm".

Re: NetSpeed plugin - applet for lxpanel

Your options for lxpanel specifically are limited to the plugins that are available for it - or you can write your own. I forget where, but I think there was a dummy plugin somewhere you can use as a starting point. FWIW, I display my network speeds on my root window with conky. Or you could use xfc...
