Re: How to change default date format?

http://www.linux.com/archive/feed/53781 Arrange your startup so LANG (or at least LC_TIME) is set in time for whatever launches PCManFM to pick it up. Typically you put export LANG= in .bashrc, and then if you have a login shell somewhere in your startup sequence, it gets set. You can do this by hav...

Re: Workspaces in LXDE

Workspaces are an illusion created by the window manager. Since you do not say what your window manager is, we do not know. If it is Openbox, this setting is discussed here http://openbox.org/wiki/Help:Configuration It would be really, really nice if people would say what version of LXDE they are ru...

Re: Applet programming

LXDE uses the gtk applet framework, the same that gnome uses. This is why many gnome applets work in LXDE. There are some tutorials for this out there. The clock applet is one of the core lxpanel applets, so it can be found in the lxpanel source. I believe the gnome clock has a similar feature to t...

Re: Menu plugin crashes lxpanel, weird problem

It's quite possible that the configuration for the failing user is corrupted, and the configuration for root is not, and that's why it is working, rather than a permissions issue.
rm -rf .config/lxpanel of the failing user should get you back to where you can recreate.

Re: Switching from GDM to LXDM

You really need to get someone from SUSE familiar with the boot mechanism to help. The basic idea is that you run the display manager from the init process. In the old days you would edit the Runlevel 5 entry in /etc/inittab to be whatever you wanted to start. But now there is systemd and upstart, s...

Re: Fedora OS

Yes, it can. Linux can read and write ntfs partitions. It should show up in your file manager as a drive that you can click on to open.

Re: LXDE and Wine

Two obvious differences are, the Exec key has an environment variable assignment in it the Path key has some garbage [$e] and refers to $HOME I do not remember whether lxpanel supports environment variable assignments in the Exec key. I know this was added to lxsession at some point. (This is the pr...

Re: compiz won't run as the configured window manager

I have no idea what you mean by "desktop session options from the preference panel" If you mean lxsession-edit, the 0.2.0 release appears to write the file with the correct name. There was at one point a change in the configuration file name from "config" to "desktop.conf". As with most problems, yo...

Re: Install fonts?

You put the font files in an appropriate font directory that you locate with xset q, then you run fc-cache in that directory, then you xset fp rehash You haven't said what your font source is, but if you have a tar file, untar it into a temporary directory and see what files you've got that have the...

Re: .desktop shortcuts

There is lxshortcut, which admittedly has a very poor interface for specifying the input and output.

Moreover nothing stops you from running alacarte.

If you want a fully GUI-ed experience you might be happier with Gnome or KDE or Xfce.
