    It could well be locale dependant. I used
    Code:
    xev
    to determine what the key was.

    That showed just grave for me. My keyboard is set the US way.

    2. Re. "dead_grave" ... I had to Google to find out what that meant but now I have this:
    Code:
        <!-- Launch Customize Look and Feel-->
        <keybind key="A-grave">
          <action name="Execute">
            <command>lxappearance</command>
          </action>
        </keybind>
    Note that it's a simple grave for me. Trying dead_grave didn't work (but didn't throw up an error either). Maybe it's locale-dependent? In any case, thank you for the grave tip.
    So what is the key combination when I add dead_grave?

    ALT + what?

    I added this code:

    <!-- Start Expose for LXDE -->
    <keybind key="A-dead_grave">
    <action name="Execute">
    <command>skippy-xd</command>
    </action>
    </keybind>
    <!-- End Expose for LXDE -->

    ran openbox --start

    but nothing happens. What is the key combo for this a work?

    ALT + What?

    Well, you can use any keys that are convenient for you. The main thing is to make sure the combination isn't already in use somewhere else. There's no warning.

    The grave or dead_grave key is on the left side of the keyboard, just below the esc key (and just above the tab key). Without holding down shift, pressing that key should give a ` (grave used in many European languages and even in Bash). Holding down the shift key and pressing that key should give a ~ (tilde).

    Not
    openbox --start
    but
    openbox --restart

    I prefer
    openbox --reconfigure

    Also try grave instead of dead_grave.

    As I pointed out earlier, if you run 'xev' in a terminal it will tell you the code and/or name of the key/s you have pressed.

    the first post code is already updated to correct the syntax error

    after applying the first post code simply hold down alt then hit `


    no need for the secondary post of the code

    Is it possible to have a transparent background like in your screenshot? Mine is not as good.
