::1. Well, this is not a really good example. It was taken from [https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=903057#p903057]. I think we should add the link to description. The idea is to lock the screen and switch off backlight. But with simple {{ic|slock & xset dpms force off}} it is not enough delay for hotkey to be released and backlight comes back. The more simple is to create an atrificial delay {{ic|slock & (sleep .5 && xset dpms force off)}}. [[User:Vas|Vas]] ([[User talk:Vas|talk]]) 11:10, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

::2. Special character replacement works fine. I've found an example [http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.window-managers.openbox/6806/focus=6814] in openbox mailing list. [[User:Vas|Vas]] ([[User talk:Vas|talk]]) 12:33, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

as mentioned pcmanfm has a desktop manager, lxappearance sets gtk2/3, icons and cursor's icons. i think [[Openbox#Desktop_icons_and_wallpapers]] can be removed and noted in [[Openbox#GUI_configuration]] or redirected to [[pcmanfm]] and [[LXDE#Cursors]] or similar ― [[User:Ubone|Ubone]] ([[User talk:Ubone|talk]]) 05:14, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

actually both [[Openbox#Desktop_icons_and_wallpapers]] and [[Openbox#Mouse_cursor_and_application_icon_themes]] should be moved to [[Openbox#GUI_configuration]] ― [[User:Ubone|Ubone]] ([[User talk:Ubone|talk]]) 05:19, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

complex command

Re [1], 1. why are two DPMS commands run in succession 2. "Special characters should be replaced", but I still hope the &amp are formatting mistakes and not to be taken literally. Else these commands should be included in a script. -- Alad (talk) 15:42, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

Ok, 1. launches slock in a subshell, which is then backgrounded. After that, the dpms delay is set to two seconds. After slock exits, the dpms command in the subshell sets the delay back to a reasonable 60 seconds. Similar to the inactivity timeout of i3lock.
For 2., I've found [2]. That's just horrible. -- Alad (talk) 19:17, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
1. Well, this is not a really good example. It was taken from [3]. I think we should add the link to description. The idea is to lock the screen and switch off backlight. But with simple slock & xset dpms force off it is not enough delay for hotkey to be released and backlight comes back. The more simple is to create an atrificial delay slock & (sleep .5 && xset dpms force off). Vas (talk) 11:10, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
2. Special character replacement works fine. I've found an example [4] in openbox mailing list. Vas (talk) 12:33, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

Desktop icons and wallpapers

as mentioned pcmanfm has a desktop manager, lxappearance sets gtk2/3, icons and cursor's icons. i think Openbox#Desktop_icons_and_wallpapers can be removed and noted in Openbox#GUI_configuration or redirected to pcmanfm and LXDE#Cursors or similar ― Ubone (talk) 05:14, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

actually both Openbox#Desktop_icons_and_wallpapers and Openbox#Mouse_cursor_and_application_icon_themes should be moved to Openbox#GUI_configurationUbone (talk) 05:19, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
