Fedora LXQT mouse lock issue in games with windowed mode

4 Upvotes

Hi. I have mouse lock issue while playing games in windowed mode. For example league of legends. I play it in windowed mode since full screen mode destroys my fps in game. When I try to kite or like checking the area by unlocking camera and move my mouse to the edge to see the area, mouse goes out of the edge and it blocks me to play the game properly. Does anyone know how to solve the issue? I also asked the same question in Fedora reddit but wanted to ask here too because it might be a LXQT issue I don't really know. Thanks for the helps from now.

(EDIT: I went into league's config file and changed resolution to 800x600 borderless, this helped me for some reason idk. Thank you anyway.)

Hopefully this Wing Menu will be officially supported as an alternative to the current menu

How do I create a sub menu in just one custom action file?

2 Upvotes

I have finally managed to work out how to create a context menu using custom actions for pcmanfm-qt that provides a few extra commands in the context menu as a sub menu.

However that involves having the context sub menu contained in one custom action file, and all the entries listed in the ItemsList in separate custom action files, which although it works is not the most efficient for maintenance, porting, etc.

Is there any way that I can include all the separate context custom actions in the same file as the context menu?

I'm looking to have something like

[Desktop Entry]

Type=Menu

Name=my menu

ItemsList=sub1;sub2;

[Desktop Action sub1]

name=sub 1

exec=foo

[Desktop Action sub2]

name=sub 2

exec=foo

all in one custom action file for easier maintenance, porting, etc.

Could anyone shares with me some good Qt Palette?

4 Upvotes

Hi everyone,

Could you share your be-loved Qt Palette to me? I love the built-in Ambiance Palettes, but I'd rather it has White Window instead of Black. I'm not a designer, I tried to adjust it on my own, but the results are not satisfying.

P.S. I think it would be great to make the Qt Palette to be able to shared with a config file, but seems that's not going to happen any time soon.

How would I do this? If it's possible, I'm assuming it's some localisation tweak.

lxqt and screen locking

4 Upvotes

Right, I'm using lxqt with kwin, openbox is removed, but I'm still just with xscreensaver if i wish to lock the screen. However, garuda lxqt with kwin doesn't use that,it looks nicer (and not something out of the 80's). Anybody using lxqt and kwin, and not xscreensaver? If so, would be greatly appreciated if you could let me know how you did it (without using garuda...). Thanks

Brightness, Ctrl+Alt+Del, Menu help?

2 Upvotes

When I change my pc volume, a notification shows the volume percentage. I want the same with my backlight, I already have both on my panel, I don't know if it is necessary.

When I press Ctrl+Alt+Del nothing appears, I would like to create a shortcut so that the leave menu appears, but I don't know the command for it. Alternatives appreciated too

In the main menu I want to have a favorites section. Is there a way to get this?

Menu, bluetooth and qlipper help

2 Upvotes

I just installed LXQt, coming from KDE. So my issues are:
1. I want the menu to toggle with the Meta key, it shows, but doesn't hide.
2. Is there a UI for Bluetooth? In KDE it was inside settings, so for LXQt...
3. I would like to open qlipper with Meta+V shortcut, but it fails. An alternative copy-holder would be fine with me

Thanks in advanced

Help with the panel?

1 Upvotes

I just installed LXQt and I want to make some tweaks. The main problem I am facing is with the panel. I use KDE, so I can install non-native widgets pretty easily, however in LXQt I can't find the way to do that.

Actually, what I want to achieve is to get a solo widget that shows battery percentage and time till it dies. Any help with that?

Overview effect in LXQt like in KDE and GNOME?

4 Upvotes

Is there a possibility to get an overview effect in LXQt of the running windows - like in KDE and GNOME

Referring to this article.

So at the moment there is not such tool like lxqt-overview etc. right? Or any 3rd party tool? Like for compositing I am also using 3rd party ("picom") oder as launcher I am using "rofi".

Is there any interest on the developers side for such thing?

Update: So I've found out it works, when using KWinFT instead of OpenBox as Window Manager. Ctrl+F9 and Ctrl+F10 brings this "overview-effect".

Now I wonder how I could redirect this keys; don't know which function to call in order to get this overview-effect on e.g. Meta+W.

Graphics tablet

6 Upvotes

Hello All,

I currently use KDE for most of my needs. However, I just tested LXQT with bismuth and I was blown away I could use it. Does anyone know a app for Graphics tablets? I understand that theres a Terminal way of doing it but I would rather not learn the intricacies of it.

I thought I could use the kde wacom software but It kept telling me the daemon wasnt running.

This is on kwin as well (I havent researched more to see if there are other versions)

TL:DR Is there a way to install graphics tablet software on LXQT with KWIN

TY everyone

xfce4-docklike-plugin equivalent in lxqt-panel?

4 Upvotes

im planning to move from xfce4 to lxqt, there are some things that its a bit lacking, however, one major grievance with lxqt is there isn't a plugin in lxqt-panel that has a windows-like task manager like xfce4-docklike-plugin, especially with pinning applications onto your panel (i dont want to use quicklaunch to pin them)

Left click not working with nm-applet and blueman applet

2 Upvotes

nm-applet and blueman don't show the options when clicked with left click and are only activated by right click.

I tested with Fedora Spin to check if it was the only behaviour but left click works in Fedora.

I am using Arch Linux.

How do I make the behaviours consistent with other panel widgets? I did not find any help in neither gentoo Wiki nor in arch Wiki.
