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?
I did update
~/.config/openbox/lxde-rc.xml to contain
<keybind key="A-F7"> <action name="Move"/> </keybind>
in the section
When reloading the openbox config with
i can press Alt+F7 to move the window.
1In Lubuntu 16.04 I have the settings in
~/.config/openbox/lubuntu-rc.xmland there is no the
lxde-rc.xmlfile. Jan 24, 2017 at 14:32
A bit late ... but for whoever might be interested : Alt+click & Move does it !
lxde doesn't provide a window manager, read this.
4Thanks. So, can I use openbox's window manager? Actually, I can use 'Alt + space' and 'move' to simulate 'Alt + F7'.– HXGuoSep 9, 2013 at 13:18
@HXGuo yes you can use openbox or any other window manager that you like– LynobSep 9, 2013 at 13:22
Could you tell me how to config it in lxde-rc.xml? thanks.– HXGuoSep 12, 2013 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– LynobSep 13, 2013 at 13:21
