Re: Change color of desktop-icon text-background

@drooly, Thanks, for your input. I spent some time with the code you directed me to, and found that section for the LXDE version. The way I'm redoing the Xfce template - or either the possibility that it is not even a themeable component vis-a-vis PCMan and my Openbox/Metacity-Compiz setup - has ren...

Change color of desktop-icon text-background

Hello, I am a SuSE-LXDE user, and I wish to change the color of my desktop icon’s text background. I found precisely what I need, below, to put in my .gtkrc-2.0.mine file; but it is written for Xfce and not LXDE. I was hoping to find out what I needed to change here to make this tweak work for LXDE'...

Re: Need Help Getting a Media Indicator Up On My Panel

Hi again seppalta, Even though I strictly use Suse, I went on ahead and temporally installed Lubuntu on a laptop of mine - owing to the fact that it is Ubuntu-based - just like the panel app. Plus, the whole set of these same indicator packages is already pre-installed on that model of LXDE. Neverth...

Re: Need Help Getting a Media Indicator Up On My Panel

xdotool really seems like a nifty apparatus; I am giving it a look, here: http://tuxradar.com/content/xdotool-script-your-mouse . It does offer bash help regarding media player stuff; but I can perhaps see this tool helping me achieve other goals as well. Not sure if I want to try to make it work in...

Re: Need Help Getting a Media Indicator Up On My Panel

Why not use passystray? Hi again seppalta, Pasystray allows setting the default PulseAudio source/sink and moving streams on the fly between sources/sinks without restarting the client applications; but what I need is the pause/play/stop buttons plus volume . There is a volume feature with Pasystra...

Re: Need Help Getting a Media Indicator Up On My Panel

The package you show in code: gir1.2-appindicator3-0.1 is not coming up available currently in any OpenSUSE repos. My research is indicating that it is alive and well in Deb/Ubuntu Land but Suse must use something else to fulfill the function of this dependency. It was, interestingly, somewhere, ove...

Re: I Would Like a Notification Banner/Baloon to Appear *SOLVED* Topic is solved

Well, since a community response didn’t appear to be forthcoming, after four days, I installed one more notification daemon - and this time... with success! :o The mate-notification-deamon did it for me. Notably, it required no dependencies (even though I had no other MATE software installed); and f...

I Would Like a Notification Banner/Baloon to Appear Topic is solved

I was hoping someone could give me a hint as to why I can't get my notification banner to appear. After switching over to LXDE, a couple of years ago, for some reason I never realized that my pop-up banners were gone. I was using someone's MATE, the other day, and there were those forgotten notifica...

Re: Desktop Concept for Lubuntu/LXDE

drooly » but you knew that, didn't you?

I'll never tell... :ugeek:

But, one thing I can tell you is - if you throw enough of it against the wall, some of it will indeed stick. :lol:
