LXDE Issues
« on: 2015/01/25, 17:06:16 »
When I click "Menu->Abmelden->Computer sperren" (I don't know the exact terms in English, but should be like: Menu-Logoff->Lock Computer), nothing happens, the computer is NOT locked.

In "Paneleinträge hinzufügen/entfernen->Desktop-Pager->Einstellungen" (add/remove Panelentries->Desktop-Pager->Setup), a message appears that there is no program found to config the windowmanager.

Version is Indian Summer

For this, install obconf. Then go Menu > Preferences > Openbox Configuration Manager. The sixth tab down on the left marked "Desktops" is where you can make changes to the desktop pager.


This isn't a bug...it's just not installed for some reason.

and the reason is: The maintainer has removed the dependency to obconf in the lxde metapackage - some of the functionality is in lxappearance. If you think thats a bug - file a report against package lxde/sid. At least obconf should be a a recommend of lxappearance-obconf or lxde i think.

PS: i think, thats a bug or a not very lucky move.

I know the right-click error goes back as far as Lubuntu 11.10. (The last LXDE I had before my current Indian Summer LXDE.) I filed a bug report on it back then...hmm. Maybe the OP should file a bug report to remind them.

I think their goal is to have all controls on one GUI. The desktop pager seems to be the only thing missing from lxappearance.

thats no magic - they use the same packaging :)

anyway - i can not change it for indian summer, but i have hard wired obconf in our buildsystem - so it will be there in the next release, no matter what upstream/debian does.

Thanks for the workaround.
