LXAppearance functionality via terminal?

Postby ibram » Mon Dec 03, 2012 10:26 pm

I am going to customize lubuntu 12.04 using Ubuntu Customization Kit (UCK) and I want to change default window border's theme, and cursors. How can I do it via terminal or file manipulations? I cannot use GUI lxappearance from UCK.

Unfortunately, no. As I understand that info a few outdated.
  • I haven't got /usr/share/lxde/openbox folder.
  • in ~/.conf/openbox I have a file lubuntu-rc.xml, not rc.xml
  • I replaced lubuntu-rc.xml to /etc/xdg/openbox/rc.xml, make a reboot and nothing changed

I haven't got /usr/share/lxde/openbox folder.

There are many operating systems that have the LXDE desktop. Some like to corrupt the generic lxde names (lubuntu-rc.xml instead of lxde-rc.xml), usually by somehow adding the distribution name. The role of the file is not changed by what it is called, but locating it might be. So keep the name that came with your system (lubuntu-rc.xml), and place the same copy, the one you want, in each of the directories: /etc/xdg/openbox, /usr/share/lxde/openbox, ~/.config/openbox, regardless if there was or was not one there originally.
Create /usr/share/lxde/openbox.

Done.
/usr/share/lxde/openbox,

Done.
~/.config/openbox,

I don't know how to do that in UCK (I don't know where is the home folder for future user which will be created during OS installation).
Create /usr/share/lxde/openbox

Done.

Unfortunately nothing changed neither for LiveCD mode nor for installed OS.
