    Very useful, I have bookmarked. Thank you very much vasa1

    Lubuntu is the one distro which resurrect my old pentiumIII laptop (ten years old), 1 GHz CPU, 512 MB ram, from which 64 MB go for the sis 630/730 graphics card. Before, it was running win xp sp3, but the computer only worked for the antivirus.

    I will try some of the tips and tricks addressed in the guide.

    One nice tip (Section 3: Desktop) for thicker window borders: open themerc and edit this line (near the end of the file):
    Code:
    border.width: 1
    to a suitable value.
    My themerc is here: ~/.themes/Theme_name/openbox-3/themerc
