    GUI For Lubuntu Keybinds (Binding Keys)

    obkey - Openbox Key Editor - Google Project Hosting

    Lubuntu's window manager is openbox, which lacks a GUI for binding keys to stuff;
    click on above link to download a tarball. (With Oneric, Dont worry about PyGTK bindings)

    after unpacking the tarball you will need to run it from the terminal.
    Go to the directory where you unpacked, type
    Code:
    ./obkey ~/.config/openbox/lubuntu-rc.xml
    Enjoy

    P.S. obkey has no help file, no nothing

    What a great app! Thanks marinara!

    This is just what I was looking for to solve a keyboard layout switching problem. I should cross-reference that thread to this one.

    The only oddity was that I couldn't assign the "setxkbmap gb" (for example) command to SHIFT-ALT-1 (= ALT-!) for some reason. But as soon as I used CTL-ALT-1, it worked great.

    Thanks again!

    Thank you for this tip!
    Is there a minimize all windows action ? I can't find it.

    Thank you for your answer!
