I noticed that on this page there is no mention of using ''systemctl enable lxdm.service'' but on the [[Display Manager]] page that is what is described. I'm new here, so before I edit this page I just wanted to make sure that adding information so the two pages are in sync was okay.

Turns out that the Keyboard Layout Handler in the panel overrides at least the setxkbmap command with its own set of "-option"s.

Hi,
+
I'm testing lxde desktop with openbox window manager under qemu (1.0).
+
 
+
If I start xorg with xf86-video-vesa driver (2.3.0-7), then lxterminal (0.1.11-1) - and only lxterminal - is badly displayed.
+
 
+
If I start xorg with xf86-video-cirrus (1.3.2-7), then lxterminal is well displayed.
+
 
+
If I start qemu with the parameter "-vga std", display problems with lxterminal and xf86-video-vesa disappear.
+
 
+
May be a bug in lxterminal... Screenshots are available if needed.

:Software problems should be solved in the forums, mailing lists, irc channels, bug trackers (also upstream). Then you should come back here and update the article if needed :)

== Directories for .desktop files ==
+
 
+
LXDE looks in two other directories besides /usr/share/applications
+
to find applications to put into its menus:
+
 
+
/usr/local/share/applications
+
 
+
~/.local/share/applications
+
 
+
This is important if you want to add your own applications to LXDE;
+
you don't have to mess with directories controlled by pacman.

"Keyboard Layout Handler" versus setxkbmap and xmodmap

Just to make a note of something I have been struggling with for quite some time: I was unable to get any setxkbmap command to work. Neither in the autostart, nor manually in a terminal window. Neither could I use xmodmap to do my tweak via xinitrc before I started lxde (that works for me with e.g. a barebones openbox, however), while it was possible to use xmodmap manually once LXDE was up and running.

Turns out that the Keyboard Layout Handler in the panel overrides at least the setxkbmap command with its own set of "-option"s. So if you use that: don't try the autostart way described here, but use the GUI option. Persilja (talk) 18:11, 22 August 2013 (UTC)
