Re: Can't specify title of lxterminal running bash

Might also be related to permissions, because this works:

sudo lxterminal -T mytit -e some_script.sh

but it runs the whole script as root. Possibly I can use it as a wrapper to do something like;

sudo -u username -H -e some_other_script.sh

I'll revise this post after I try that.

A work-around

I found I can run a wrapper script in the background (so lxterminal can't mess with it) to get the title option working when invoking lxterminal. The wrapper must have a shebang that points to something besides bash. Both tcsh and dash work. I haven't investigated other shells yet. The shebang in th...

other odd behaviours that I suspect are related

Investigating this, I stumbled across some things I suspect may be related: 1.

Re: Can't specify title of lxterminal running bash

Thanks, Drooly. I wouldn't have thought of those 2 files. I'll post whatever I figure out.

Re: Remove program from right click context menu

Is there a penalty for heresy here? You might try spacefm as a gui file browser instead of pcmanfm. Takes a little getting used to, because the dev IgnorantGuru chose to ignore all sorts of conventions that are common to graphical file browsers and start from scratch. But it makes these sorts of thi...

Re: Menu Button Bind Corner of the Display

If you mean the menu that starts with "Send to Desktop" and ends with "Close", which is mousebound to the window edges in the rc.xml, do 2 things: 1. Make your window borders a little thicker. This is specified in the themerc file in the your Openbox theme. Try 5 pixels as an ini...

Re: ohhhhhh! terrible effect of xrandr -o normal/left in lxqt

Not pointless criticism but sincere well-intentioned advice: You need to work harder at learning how to express yourself in English if you are going to be communicating about technical subjects. Your competency in the language is probably more than adequate for a social situation, but you'd be a dis...

Re: Automount SD card when logging on as non-root?

Did you try putting an appropriate line in /etc/fstab? I'm assuming it works like any other removable media and I might be wrong about that. But if it does, fstab would be the traditional way. For the exact syntax, study: man fstab You want it set to automount, and NOT to put booting on hold if it i...

Can't specify title of lxterminal running bash

I have lxterminal 0.2.0-1 under openbox 3.6.1-1ubuntu2 under Ubuntu Xenial 16.04 LTS, 64 bit. Minimalist environment installed from the mini.iso and built up. Something, I suspect bash, is policing the titles of lxterminal windows running bash, specifically GNU bash, version 4.3.48(1)-release (x86_6...

Re: LXDE on Kali-2016.1 x64 configure hotkeys for teminal

Is necroposting OK here? Somebody might wander by looking for the same information, so: What I'm writing is based on plain Openbox, but lxde should be similar if not exactly the same. You might try setting keybindings in: ~/.config/openbox/rc.xml or there is probably a very similar file specific to ...
