lxterminal sometimes not showing prompt on start.

Installed lxterminal on archlinux + lxde. Sometimes, I found when I start lxterminal, there is no prompt in it. But, if I press any character, i.e. Enter key, the prompt come out instantly.
How did this be solved ?

Re: Which distros work best with LXDE?

I played around with a few distros with lxde and finally settled on xubuntu... I am using this on a netbook and I found it to be one of the faster solutions... and as a linux noob all the underlying ubuntu compatibility/support was a plus =) One for Arch. I like archlinux very much for its KISS. An...

Re: Lxde 需要打包吧

我不这样认为。
每个发行版都有自己的软件源,安装软件时应该从软件源中安装,而不是从软件的官网上下载,除非这个软件在源里没有。
理由是,相同的软件,在每个发行版中都不大一样。大多都在测试阶段就打上了patch或者mod。为的是更好的为本发行版服务。以ubuntu为例,大家都知道ubuntu源于debian,但是二者的软件包却不推荐混用,即使都是.deb格式。

inconsolata 字体在 lxde 下很差

我很喜欢 inconsolata 字体。在windows xp下,常规10号就很好看。但是在lxde(archlinux+lxde)下,若是常规10号就不清楚,必须要粗体才行。
同样的字体,为什么会有这样的差别?有谁知道怎样才能让inconsolata在lxde中的常规有windows下的清晰?

LCD Screen Font ?

I have arch+lxde on, and use inconsolata font. Under windows xp, inconsolata just use normal and seems fine, but in lxde(green text on black background), I should use bold to get better eyesight.

Is it due to LCD hinting or the font or the color theme ?

Re: any Plugin for Keyboard-Layout siwtching!

I can't imaging you are changing your keyboard layout when working. If you want to change the default layout, edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf, Core keyboard's InputDevice section. There you should see code as belows: Option "XkbRules" "xorg" Option "XkbModel" "pc105" ...

Re: DPI for Screen

I use slim as my login manager.
In /etc/slim.conf, thereis

xserver_arguments -nolisten tcp vt07

Change it to

xserver_arguments -nolisten tcp vt07 -dpi 96 // 96dpi for example

That's all.
