Are they handeled by Openbox in LXQt or by a special application?

I modified rc.xml to call a personal script (scrotview, easy to modify) who does the work.

"Print screen" (or Impr Ecran or the german translation) is easy to remember.  ;)

Would be nice (but not necessary) to have a menu entry for this script.

I rechecked the live USB.
nm-applet icon was flawless from begin on. Octopi notifiere needed one activation of Octopi to be displayed.
I tried world-clock (didn't understanf excalibur1234 that this was the second clock he mentioned) and it works on vertical panel.



I still didn't find out how to make the menu transparent. :(
The menus of some applications are transparent (lxterminal), but on most they aren't.

And I totally love how you can modify icon sizes on the panel. Especially useful is that you can modify height and width of taskbar icons. This way you can make them smaller than launchers. I'd rather have a way to make the tray icons smaller as well.

What I'm also missing is a sensor panel plugin. It didn't work for me on previous LXQt releases, it works on LXDE.

I installed LXQt to hard drive and there have been some package updates. There is a sensors plugin now, but I don't know yet whethter it works.
nm-applet isn't shown in system tray.
I switched from Chromium to Qupzilla, it works fine. I only need to find an Adblock for it. EDIT: Addblock is integrated.
I would also like to ask: What is the command for changing desktop background? Same as in LXDE?

xsensors is fine.

Else, right-click on the DE to change the wallpaper. I also added a function to all pictures, "define as wallpaper", who must work.

It is fine, but you need to click its window to see it, I prefer to have a panel applet. (Although on Openbox I made the tint2 panel shorter and placed a small conky in the left bottom corner.)
I'd like to use a small script for regularly changing the wallpaper. I found out now what works:
Code: [Select]
#!sh
delay=600
while true; do
  dash -c 'pcmanfm-qt -w "$(find /home/eugen/Pictures/Wallpapers type f | shuf -n1)"'
  sleep $delay
done
Is there a difference between dash, bash, sh? I simply installed dash, because it wasn't there.
PS: I noticed the nice and useful function "Define as Wallpaper" and thought it was from upstream.

Update: I checked the box "wait for tray" at nm-applet autostart options and it worked now. It appeared. It also recovered from pixel errors from first session where I started it first time manually.

I don't know dash. sh is the Bourne-Shell, so the old Unix one, a subset common to all distros.

You will create a lot of process with you loop, no ? And you can"t call pcmanfm-qt directly ?

I played with the command some time ago and got only this result working. Perhaps it is a bit complicated because I used it originally for a cron job. But then I switched to a sleeping script. I'll see if I can simplify it and report back.

@Esclapion: I checked the script, the pcmanfm-qt command works directly in a terminal, but for the script it must be wrapped either by bash, dash or sh. Then I get two processes in task manager sh with 3MB and sleep with 500-700kB. The wallpaper changes then every 10 minutes (600 seconds). Works on LXDE either with pcmanfm without -qt.

I have a new look, and I think there is a mix between sh and dash. Anyway, i don't understant why you use this. I can do tries because my PC is broken but typically $( ) to get the result of a command is an extension bash (or dash) not understood by sh. Thus, you call dash only to understand this extension.

In command line, you are under bash by default, not sh.

Not very simple to explain...

Example :

Code: [Select]
#!/bin/bash
delay=3

while :
do
    for i in /usr/share/backgrounds/*.jpg
    do
        echo $i
        pcmanfm-qt -w $i 2>/dev/null
        sleep $delay
    done
done


I don't know exactly what you will do, but...

Well, I copied the command from LXLE and I didn't learn UNIX scripting. In your scrip proposal I don't see any randomization. I want a random picture without repetition of the last picture. Maybe one can integrate it, but I don't see any advantage besides learning to code. I agree there is an advantage of less complex code for scalabily, but on a PC in such a small application there is no need for optimization. It works and it is enough. :) ;)
PS: I also corrected my first line to #!/bin/bash

Replace :

Code: [Select]
for i in /usr/share/backgrounds/*.jpg
by :

Code: [Select]
for i in $(ls /usr/share/backgrounds/*.jpg | shuf)
