Tired of several problems with KDE4 and (especially) Plasma, I'm investigating in some alternatives which seem to suit me -- one of them being LXDE. Switch seems a breeze, got most things working to my satisfaction within minutes -- but got stuck with my Superkaramba theme I use for years (with small adaptions):
The first line (defining a Karamba theme) reads
KARAMBA x=-1 y=-1 w=1280 h=35 locked=true interval=1000 topbar=true ontop=true
This worked fine back with KDE 3.5, caused not much problems with Plasma -- but seems to have issues on LXDE: the x/y is completely ignored. Which would be no problem if I could simply unlock, move, and re-lock. Unfortunately the "Lock position" option is grayed out. Sure, next idea is to edit that line setting
locked=false (yepp, works), move the "widget" to where it shall go (works), hope the line is updated accordingly (doesn't work) and set
locked=true (widget snaps back to the wrong position).
Is this a known issue? Any work-arounds known? Or alternatives supporting Superkaramba themes and work with them (I tried Screenlet, but it completely failed all Karamba themes I tried as soon as it comes to interaction or anything beyond "still images")?
