    Terminal command for Customize Look and Feel

    Hey all,

    I've been using Lubuntu/Openbox for awhile now. I really like the tint2 configuration on #!, and I've been using its config file with tint in Lubuntu. However, in removing the stock taskbar, I lost my menu button, and have no idea how to launch the customize look and feel window.

    Does anyone know what the command is for this in a terminal?

    Thanks

    Exactly what I wanted. Thanks a bunch.

    Also, I feel really stupid for asking this, but I cannot remember how to mark a thread as "SOLVED."

    No problem. Glad to be of help.
    Don't feel stupid- the plugin doesn't work with the new version of VB (yet). Just edit the original post and add [SOLVED] to the front of the thread.
    Good luck!

    Here's something, not limited to Lubuntu, that gives you both the descriptive name of a program as well as the command to invoke that program in a terminal as Name and Command pairs:
    Code:
    sed -nrs '/^\[Desktop Entry\]/d;/^(\[|Name=|Exec=)/p;${g;p}' /usr/share/applications/*.desktop > ~/Desktop/a1.txt
    This code creates a file called a1.txt on your desktop and it looks like this, in part:
    Code:
    ...
    Name=Shutdown
    Exec=lubuntu-logout
    
    Name=ScreenLock
    Exec=xscreensaver-command -lock
    
    Name=Lubuntu Software Center
    Exec=lubuntu-software-center
    
    Name=Customize Look and Feel <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
    Exec=lxappearance
    
    Name=Terminal emulator
    Exec=/usr/bin/x-terminal-emulator
    
    Name=Web Browser
    Exec=/usr/bin/x-www-browser %u
    
    Name=Keyboard and Mouse
    Exec=lxinput
    
    Name=Lxkeymap
    Exec=lxkeymap
    ...
    By its nature, it's limited to programs with .desktop files located in /usr/share/applications only. I can't explain the order in which the names and command pairs appear and so the name or command pair may not appear in strict alphabetical order. (The code above is slightly modified from that here.)
