Re: [SOLVED] Unable to copy and paste

I have Fedora installed on a second system (with AMD video) and have a few other desktop environments installed on that. When I looked at LXDE on this other system, I noticed it was not loading Clipit at login, which explains why I did not have this problem on that system.

Re: Unable to copy and paste

you still have to key Ctrl-C then, or right click and "Copy". well, actually it depends if you or the application in question uses the primary or secondary clipboard. for the primary, a simple highlight is enough to copy, and SHift+Insert to paste, or middle-click. primary and secondary c...

Re: Can't sort desktop icons in LXDE(Ubuntu 18.04.1)

I'm running Fedora Linux 29 here. If I highlight all of the desktop icons and right-click, there is a selection Snap to Grid. That will evenly space the desktop icons. As for sorting them in any particular order, it should be possible to move them at will.

Re: Lxde does not start for user

It almost sounds like your system isn't loading in the driver for the video card/chip. I'm running 29 and had to disable acceleration in the driver (nouveau) in order to get the Plasma desktop to come up. Plasma, LXDE and LXQt all work fine in this mode. MATE and Cinnamon do not and have been remove...

Re: If LXDE is deprecated, can it still be used safely?

For the time being lxde and lxqt are both being developed. I believe that Lubuntu is the only major distro that has chosen to replace its DE. There may be others. There are well over 40 other distros that use lxde. LXDE is still in the Ubuntu repositories and is still being updated. Both will exist...

Re: is LXDE dead?

I have both LXDE and LXQt installed on Fedora 29 now and both are equally fast. I'm pleased with both.

Re: Unlock keyring prompts after LXQt login [SOLVED]

I found a solution. I renamed the folder keyrings , located in home/<username>/.local/share/ , to keyrings.old and rebooted. The window/prompt to input the password to unlock the keyring has not appeared after this and it automatically created a new /home/<username>/.local/share/keyrings folder. I'm...
