that is installed. Unfortunately it just simply does not show up in the menu.
And you replaced openbox with kwin_x11? I am not familiar with using kwin as replacement for openbox, but it does seem strange that KDE Systemsettings isn't available in your menu. Try running "systemsettings5" in a terminal and see if that works.


Best regards.

systemsettings5 launches it. Openbox is not even on my system anymore. I installed synaptic and it appears to work with that. Thanks for the help  ;)

I replaced openbox with Kwin and the window borders and effects are all working. What turns me into Madness however, is the fact when i go to preferences-->lxqt settings I dont find Kde-systemsettings anywhere? what is this? Also when i click the window panel and try to go to window manager settings, it does not work.
I have this problem as well since two updates ago. systemsettings5 has disappeared from my LXQt Settings menu

Glad that worked. You could manually create an entry in your menu, for ease of access. :)

i have nothing in start menu --> preferences --> lxqt settings, too.
but i have 2 links to systemsettings5 in start menu --> preferences. in english, they are called "kde system settings" and "system settings". these links have been there at least since lxqt 0.8.
please look at my attached screenshot. in german these links are called "kde-systemeinstellungen" and "systemeinstellungen".

Also when i click the window panel and try to go to window manager settings, it does not work.
you are right. it does not work for me either.
i have never used this method for opening systemsettings5 before, so i cannot tell you whether this has worked in the past or not.

It would be very interesting to know how your links are done... a .desktop ?  ;)

i have installed systemsettings for a while now. i think i installed it as version 5.0 or 5.1.
maybe the latest version 5.3 has a bug?

Sorry, I was busy.

It's simple, we have a line in systemsettings.desktop :

Code: [Select]
OnlyShowIn=KDE;
it must be changed into :

Code: [Select]
OnlyShowIn=LXQt;
(care to the word LXQt :) )

There are together 2 .desktop : 1 for KDE, and one for the others, it seems.
