I use Eclipse IDE and there is a handy binding that I use when I'm running Eclipse on Windows that doesn't work under Openbox. Ctrl-Alt-Up causes a line to be duplicated. I've tried everything to have this key sequenced passed to Eclipse under Openbox, but it seems Openbox is taking itI've tried commenting out all the C-A-Up settings in rc.xml, but that doesn't seem to work. How to configure Openbox (or whomever) to pass the sequence on to the application?
I ran ubuntu 10.04 for about half a year now-but rarely logged into it. Recently, I wiped ubuntu 10.04 and installed lubuntu 11.04 with the intentions of ditching open box/lxde and just installing fluxbox. However, I like openbox/lxde combo a LOT so I'mma gonna keep it. My question is: I would like to be able to do one of two things: Either ctrl+alt+del to lock the workstation when I leave it OR have a window popup up with lock desktop/log-out/restart/shutdown options listed. I am familair with installing applications on linux and can use google fairly well so if someone knows a way to do the second option(preferable) and can get me off in the right direction about what pckgs I'd need that would be great! Thanks. John PS: there is a button like this by default on lubuntu 11.04 but it has NO lock desktop option on it.
Edit: Changed the title to fit the solution I found (which is to replace pcmanfm), and added some stuff. This was originally about mailcap, which is an exotic thingummy to change preferred applications, but did not work.
I have an older laptop (P4 Compaq Presario 2110; 512mb RAM) on which I installed Lubuntu 10.10. I am using a Buffalo wireless G PCMCIA card (Broadcom 43xx chip set) on the LXDE side which works perfectly. Out of curiosity I installed 'icewm' and 'openbox.' My wireless card shows when I check lspci as "UP." Using wicd, I can see networks, but my router will not resolve an IP address. NetworkManager does nothing.
I have tried using both ifconfig and iwconfig commands with no love.
Is this something inherent with lighter WMs and desktops? Is there a means to allow my router assign an IP and why would it be different for a different WM? Should the IP address be assigned to the computer?
I installed lxde, but my wireless internet doesn't work. I can switch back to gnome and it works perfectly. I tried wicd and manually connecting with the command line. Both fail while trying to get an ip.

I set openbox wallpaper with: Code: feh --bg-scale ~/Pictures/image.jpg & In ~/.config/openbox/autostart.sh last line. But some kind of KDE stuff overrides it and sets default again after few seconds. I can override it again with manual command. How can I set wallpaper then in openbox in proper way?
after a while of using Gnome with Fedora 12, I installed Openbox and started the configuration process. Everything is pretty much just the way I like it, but when I open the package manager and try to install something, it says "Authorization failed: you have failed to provide proper authentication. Please check any passwords or account settings" I'm sure it's because I forgot to add something to my autostart.sh, but I'm not sure exactly what...
I installed Fedora 15 on my netbook the other day and I decided that I will remove everything but the absolutely needed to make things lighter, faster and less time/power consuming. I thought that GDM isn't needed on a single-user machine. Maybe I can remove it and have a script run on boot and take care of (auto-)loging in and starting the DE? (Xfce, but I plan switching to openbox/fluxbox and 3rd party panels/widgets etc). Is it possible? (and does it worth it?)
Lubuntu is nice - but it seems the LXDE version is not as up to date as Fedora LXDE Spin or even Debian squeeze with LXDE installed. I do like Chromium on Lubuntu though... its faster and a nice touch. I am looking for a lightweight 64-bit distribution for my main laptop (it is by no means "old" or "low spec" but I like that Lubuntu starts up in like 2 secs).
LXDE version seems not to be recent (esp in 10.04 version which seems to work more stably for me - with Nvidia drivers etc)64 bit install is currently a pain - requires first install of minimal CD or alternate CD both of which required wired Ethernet, then install of lubuntu from PPA. Native 64-bit support would be nice. Linux Mint LXDE, for example, is also only 32-bit.
I've tried to do a clean install of F10 on one of my pcs. I deselected Gnome and only selected LXDE. But after the installation-proces finished and I did a reboot, I only got a commandline in which I only was able to log into as root. No LXDE. Nor did the command "startx" start X. to my surprise. On another pc I did an install of F10 with Gnome and later on I've installed LXDE. After a reboot I was able to select LXDE in gdm. But how can I get a clean install of F10 with only LXDE? What am I missing here?
I installed fedora 14 lxde saturday, loaded about 1/2 the items from the unofficial fedora faq, and see videos on ....., but there is no sound. However, the sound works fine on sabayon lxde.# alsamixer -c 0 -- shows the sound settings are turned up. What can I do to get the sound working?
opera-11.11-2109.i386.rpm From opera's webpage. Installed with double-click. Asked for root permissions... the standard way of installing. Neither CLI 'opera' nor the GUI's menu -> internet -> opera does anything!
What is difference between fedora 15 GNOME and fedora 15 LXDE except their interface.(I think their is no difference except their interface). GNOME 3 interface is much better than LXDE but it uses a lot of system resources. If I have F15 GNOME then can i switch from GNOME to LXDE without reinstalling it if yes then how?
Tried an install of Fedora 15 LXDE. Says I need 1100 MB of RAM to install and only have 1000 MB of RAM. So will not install. First time I ever needed over 1GB of RAM on my netbook, especially LXDE which should run on 512 MB, install and everything.
I have F15 (gnome 3 version) and I installed lxde (yum install @lxde-desktop), but in lxde don't show window frames, where appear the application title, and minimize, maximize and close buttons. gdm allows start in openbox directly and I haven't the issue, but isn't comfortable work so. What I can do?
I use LXDE for about 2 days now, having several issues, but most important, its the only DE that hangs up itself every 10-60 minutes.
All i do is surf the web, watch a movie or listen music (mp3). I have no idea what could it cause, i dont get a error message.
Its acting like, do you know the old hughe black vynil long play discs? when they had a scratch, they were repeating it over and over and over and over and over and over... Well its kinda the same, just that it repeats either the music or the video (just the audio), mouse is frozen, and nothing but power shutdown works anymore.
After the 3 other DE's i was using, i kinda like LXDE the most, but that bug (?) is pretty annoying.
I'm using Fedora 12 with LXDE (sudo yum groupinstall LXDE if you want to try it), and while using LXDE rather than GNOME, the power button doesn't do anything. I found a possible solution here: [URL] but I have no /etc/acpi/ folder. Why is that? Package acpid is needed.
I tried installing Fedora 15 Gnome on my 8 year old laptop, but it didn't work so well since Gnome 3 couldn't start due to my graphics adapter (although it worked fine in Fedora 14), so I tried installing Fedora 15 LXDE and had much better results. Any way, after running yum update, I tried to install Google Chrome since I prefer it over FireFox, but I noticed that I didn't have the opton to automatically install it with a package manager, only download it. Once downloaded, I tried to open it via the GUI and it brought up a screen asking me what application I wanted to use to open the rpm. It didn't even know how to install a rpm!! I then tried to install it via the command line, but it failed because the package was dependent on others. After looking around in the Administration menu, there does not seem to be any package manager installed. How can this be? I've used many different versions of Linux before, but none that didn't have a package manager or didn't know how to install it's own native binaries. I don't get it.
My previous laptop died (HD failure, etc.) so I just put F15/LXDE on a Dell Latitude D610. All updates applied. I inserted my Canon Powershot A480 in a USB port, but o/s doesn't seem to react. No desktop icon, no FileManager presence, nothing in /media folder. Other USB devices are detected, mounted and recognized (external HD, memory stick, etc.), but not the camera. what I should do to get the camera recognized?
Edit: DigiKam and Digikam libs are installed and system was rebooted. Still no camera detection.
