Where is the option or config file to align the desktop icons to a grid in LXDE/Openbox?

You highlight the icons you want, then you right click on one of them and you select from the menu that is popping to "Align to grid" and automatically they will align to grid.

Right, thanks, I didn't say that I want them to be aligned automatically. Right-click and "Align to grid" aligns them, but as soon as I move an icon, it's not aligned anymore. – basic6 Nov 29 '11 at 19:41
Thanks, it works. – Czarek Tomczak Mar 15 '12 at 23:41
