Hello all.

I've found a problem which doesn't seem to be unique to Siduction; when I'm in Openbox and try to move a window around the desktop, the desktop doesn't refresh and the window leaves a trail all around the screen.
Fortunately there's a fix for it, which I found from a Ubuntu forum. You have to look for a directory called /usr/lib/x86-64-linux-gnu and then, in that, a file called openbox-autostart. Then uncomment this line;
#test -z $BG || $BG -solid "#303030"

Hi again,
I just want to say that I'm in Ubuntu 19.04 now and have discovered this exact same problem (and the same solution) there as well, so it's clearly not a problem exclusive to Seduction. I've just joined the Ubuntu One forum and mentioned it on there.

I expect, but only for your test. Disco is EOS.

Thanks, you're right. It's possible they've fixed the bug by now and should check to make sure. I installed Ubuntu 19.04 from a cover disk from an old Linux magazine (Linux Format) and probably shouldn't have.

Thanks again; I found the Ubuntu homepage confusing. I had to sign up to Ubuntu One before I could post there, but you're right about that being its address.
