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 – Lynob 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 and read this and this if you need further help consider asking here those guys are expert in the linux world – Lynob Sep 13 '13 at 13:21

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

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

in the section <keyboard>.

When reloading the config with

openbox --reconfigure

i can press Alt+F7 to move the window.
