Re: swap/re-map ctrl alt keys lxde/lubuntu (mac like behavio

Re: How To Lock Your Screen in Lubuntu

Anyway, I don't use Lock Screen often, but I like doing it using a short-cut, instead of an icon. What I did to lock my screen was make it a hot-key in the lubuntu-rc.xml file. I chose Super-l as an easy to remember hot-key combination. My code for it was: <!-- Super-L to lock the screen with the sc...

Re: how to bind "Super key" to "LXDE menu"

Right!! Got it all sorted out now, thanks to the posts here from gymka ! :D I found this section in the defaults in ~/.config/openbox/lubuntu-rc.xml for turning on the Super Key (usually has the Windoze logo on it). I commented this out, so pressing the super key would not open the LXDE menu and all...

Re: how to bind "Super key" to "LXDE menu"

It seems a shame since there are so few of us that are active in this forum that some knuckle-head(s) have to SPAM the forums for no reason other than they can. Where are the moderators when you need them? Getting back to the subject, the super key is already binded (is that a word) to the start me...
