I have to show little pictures without frame/bars etc on the screen (keyboard dispositions for Asian keyboards). Is that possible?

Hi drooly

Kubuntu 17.04

But I would prefer to start as LXQT, not as KDE...

Kind regards

Ubuntu 17.04 along with all of its flavors, of which Kubuntu is one, is still in development and testing so it bound to have problems. If you are looking for a solid version, I would recommend that you install 16.04 which has Long Term Support (5 years for Ubuntu and 3 years for any of the flavors. Any time you install multiple desktops you do have the option to choose which desktop environment that you you want to boot into. However, since each comes with its own list of programs there is occasionally conflicts.

I have problems yes, but not with 17.04 but with 16.04 (as well as 16.10)! :lol: And the problem is solved in 17.04 :mrgreen: ...

back to my "main" problem:

how to show some little picture?

ImageMagick, for ex., supplies the needing tool

Code: Select all

display mypicture.jpeg


but, although display is a CLI command, it comes with some title bar...

"it" is probably not the correct expression: The Window Manager (LXQT alt. OpenBox) gives to him this in my case unwished propriety!

the question is also: how to commute down this propriety :idea: (it is for ex. possible in Xombrero, the browser of Lubuntu minimal: as it is a VI like app, it is possible to shut down the command bar in it (I don't know if it is possible to avoid that LXQT add some head bar above :mrgreen: !)

perhaps I have to change the WM (according to the Arch Wiki, LXQT seems to be able to operate with other than OpenBox :idea: :!: But, which one :?: I did register JWM in ~/.config/lxqt/session.conf as recommend in https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/LXQt but I did see no difference :oops: !

i see.

you can set up your openbox to NOT dispay titlebars around this.
you need to add an entry to your rc.xml (it's probably lxde-rc.xml somewhere in ~/.config/openbox or ~/.config/lxde), in the applications section (read the link!).

example:

Code: Select all

<applications>
  <!-- match display windows, and remove their decorations -->
  <application class="Display">
    <decor>no</decor>
  </application>
...
