General sluggishness, especialy lxpanel

I've done some playing around writing plugins based on the CPU Usage Monitor and the digital clock. I made a GUI Bitcoin price monitor and a text one. https://sourceforge.net/projects/btctick/ Anyway my network connection is through a cell phone, so I thought something I'd written was blocking waiti...

Re: Can't change focus or drag windows Topic is solved

I wasn't actually compiling ffmpeg, it was done and installed. I did a make uninstall then later a make install to put my new one back. The one I just built is 4.2.2, the one in debs is 4.1.4, but I was having odd problems with it. I blame my crash on grub-uboot. I don't actually need it on this Ras...

Re: Can't change focus or drag windows Topic is solved

Got it. Booted to just a command line, I renamed /root/.config/openbox/lxde-pi-rc.xmlo to .off. Did a startx and it's mostly normal. Right-clicking on stuff in lxpanel doesn't work yet. I enabled a pager with obconf and set it to 6 desktops but I only see 1. I'm thinking I need to quit LXDE to cause...

Blimy! If I log in as pi instead of root the problem goes away. So it's maybe something in /root/.config. I'm getting warm.

Re: Can't change focus or drag windows Topic is solved

I was thinking of xinput-calibrator but that's only for touchscreens.

Re: Can't change focus or drag windows Topic is solved

I think this time I'm logged in correctly, time will tell. Aha, something's wrong with the calibration. If I click about 1/8 inch below the title bar on a window I can drag it. Still can't change focus to it though. Yes, there are probably defined keystrokes for that, I should look them up. Alt-tab ...

Re: My desktops keep rearranging

No screen locker, I get rid of those as soon as I can. A console screenblanker like you get rid of by putting noconsoleblank in your kernel config string. 20 years ago or so I had a goofy girlfriend and we were into xscreensaver. But you could never watch them very long, the screen would go blank. I...

Re: My desktops keep rearranging

It's not that LXDE always does it, I've never seen it before. But I also don't have another desktop/window manager on here to compare LXDE to. I don't change resolutions, it's always 1920x1080. It seems like somewhere there must be a table that holds the coordinates of each window and that gets lost...

Re: how to set up the weather plugin

Localisation is a different thing entirely that includes your keyboard map and wifi country, language. I had the weather plugin working once and decided it wasn't worth bothering with. There are different standards for sending online weather info to be readable by programs like the weather plugin, b...

My desktops keep rearranging

The stuff on each pane of the desktop I mean. Only on one machine, my Rock64 running Debian Buster. Never saw it before but it's probably peculiar to LXDE. I'm not sure where this info is stored but something happens to it. When I go away for maybe 10 minutes I come back to find all my application w...
