Re: Revisiting LXDE

Why couldn't Lubuntu offer two images, Lubuntu (the original) and Lubuntu/Qt?

Fedora offers both and I believe there is at least one other distro that does as well.

Re: font corruption and desktop trashed.

When I said kernel related, that could be explained by kernel modules. I also have an onboard NVidia and I have to use nouveau since the proprietory drivers don't support this older GPU any more. ( Wasted days on that one before ). In my experience nouveau (sometimes) does not work so well with old...

Re: font corruption and desktop trashed.

I have an older NVIDIA chip in this, the GeForce 6150SE / nForce 430. The drivers for this chip that had been provided by the RPM Fusion repository, were EOL'd beginning with Fedora 28. It's very easy to disable GLX. In /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ add a file named 01-my-disable-glx.conf and put the follow...

Re: Icons and Fonts

In Fedora, I found a package lxde-icon-theme, which does not install with their default LXDE installation.

It provides the nuoveXT2 icon-theme. The summary describes it as the default icon-theme for LXDE.

Re: font corruption and desktop trashed.

That definitely looks like video corruption. I had that on my other desktop - if it didn't crash completely, if I tried to use Cinnamon, Plasma (KDE), MATE, or XFCE. Unfortunately, there is no safe way to remove most installed desktops without DNF wanting to remove hundreds of other packages and dep...

Re: Icons and Fonts

I was able to successfully remove the Cinnamon desktop on one system,. going to try ti on the other. But KDE/Plasma, unfortunately, not so much. It removed the packages beginning with kde* with others, but when I then attempted to remove all of the plasma* named packages, it wants to remove over 200...

Thanks, I'll try it! The method I used seems to work fine for the "real" desktop, when it was connected to a monitor - but not for virtual desktops. I don't get why keyboard mappings depend on the display!
That's probably by design. I've never actually used a virtual desktop/machine before.

Re: Colors from some apps(Skype, by example) on Ubuntu with LXDE

I do not use Ubuntu, but take a look at the available Themes. In LXDE, those can be viewed and changed using the Openbox Configuration Manager.

<soapbox mode on> I've been experiencing multiple crashes of an e-mail app, with related kernel crashes that are referencing the e-mail app. They are queuing up in ABRT on my system because Fedora's retrace (bug processing) server has been offline for a while due to a data center move. The e-mail ap...

Re: How to change LXLauncher background bar appearance?

There is a manual entry for lxlauncher, referencing a ~/.config/lxlauncher/settings.conf file containing display settings, but on my Fedora system, ~/.config/lxlauncher/ does not exist.

Code: Select all

man lxlauncher
