I just move from gnome to LXDE. It is quite good, fast and light. But, some functions are lost in from gnome. For example, I can press Alt+F7 in gnome to move a window with keyboard or mouse. But, I can not do it in LXDE. Can I set it up in configure file?

lxde doesn't provide a window manager, read this.

Thanks. So, can I use openbox's window manager? Actually, I can use 'Alt + space' and 'move' to simulate 'Alt + F7'. –  HXGuo Sep 9 '13 at 13:18
    
@HXGuo yes you can use openbox or any other window manager that you like –  Fischer Sep 9 '13 at 13:22
    
Could you tell me how to config it in lxde-rc.xml? thanks. –  HXGuo Sep 12 '13 at 23:46
    
@HXGuo to be honest i used lxde once for like 2 weeks, so i didn't configure it or anything but you can watch this video youtu.be/YkOFStobVhI and read this pclosmag.com/html/Issues/201011/page09.html and this linux-commands.wikidot.com/howto-s:lxde if you need further help consider asking here unix.stackexchange.com those guys are expert in the linux world –  Fischer Sep 13 '13 at 13:21

I did update ~/.config/openbox/lxde-rc.xml to contain

<keybind key="A-F7">
  <action name="Move"/>
</keybind>

in the section <keyboard>.

When reloading the config with

openbox --reconfigure

i can press Alt+F7 to move the window.
