Using LXDE with other window managers?

I find myself returning to LXDE each time I briefly move to another setup, and though I discovered LXDE while limited to a low powered used machine I increasingly prefer everything simple, from themes to applications. Today, though, I had a try at using Metacity with LXDE as I had done when messing ...

'autohide'

Hello. I have searched this here and through ddg, thinking it would be a common wish. Can the LXDE panel be made to move out of the way for programs starting in a maximized window? I have altered Opera's desktop file so that it opens maximised but ideally I would get the F11 look for it and a few ot...

Pointer for my Openbox theme?

A tangent maybe, but if it's okay I'd like some assistance with this window border on my Debian LXDE setup. I think I had once had a better version of this theme, adapted from another Openbox theme, where I kept the black border lines when the window went maximized. They currently don't. Can it be d...

Re: Thinkpad T22 will not shut down

After much googling I find now that (in the terminal) sudo shutdown -h now works. How can I assign this to the shutdown process' normal method. It had not been 'halting' (-h) whatever the difference is there! Somewhere in LXDE I gather there is a script triggered by the power button or the longer ke...

Thinkpad T22 will not shut down

(This is made from two posts to the mint forum.) I've recently bought quite an old Thinkpad, a T22 from 2001 - 900mhz, 20gb, 256mb. It came with XP on though it was designed for Windows 98 and 2000 according to a sticker on it, and as it was XP was a bit slow. New ram arriving this week. I've tried ...

Re: LXINPUT Keyboard and Mouse issues

You could try the LXDE version of Linux Mint, probably the most polished LXDE distro out there and familiar enough to a Lubuntu user. Some of the graphical interfaces for things like the mouse don't seem to communicate well with configuration files and I imagine there's one in a filesystem folder th...

Re: synclient and left click button [Solved]

After a couple of hours searching the filesystem and boards I learnt this should be added to the .gtkrc-2.0 file in the /home directory:

gtk-double-click-time=450

At least, 450 suits me anyway.

open browser fullscreen with one click?

I use Midori for internet, with Linux Mint 11 LXDE, and ideally I'd like my panel icon to open the browser fullscreen, in other words as if I'd also pressed F11. Can this be done?

Thanks.

synclient and left click button [Solved]

What synclient command/setting do I need to change and add to my autostart file to make double-clicks slower. In other words I don't want to have to be so quick with the second click to open folder etc. Currently to stop my netbook driving me insane because of its poor single button I've set it to o...

Re: 'flat' panel buttons - how is this done?

The one LXDE distro I have at the moment doesn't seem to have something for taking screenshots but I will show you my Gnome panel, with and without flat panel buttons , and will try explaining better. I have learnt how to make 'flat' panel buttons using Gnome 2 in the last couple of days. Screenshot...
