Re: Can LXDE save size/position of shell/ternimal windows?

Well I have had a jolly time editing ~/.config/openbox/lxde-rc.xml and I have put the terminal window exactly where I want it however sizing the window does not seem to work by this method I suspect the /usr/local/sbin/lxterminal file has to be edited but for the moment I have restored my old edit t...

Re: Can LXDE save size/position of shell/ternimal windows?
