Your rc.xml file should be in ~/.config/openbox. Back it up first and then please try: <keybind key="W-Left"> # HalfLeftScreen <action name="Unmaximize"/> <action name="MoveResizeTo"><x>0</x><y>0</y><height>100%</height><width>50%</width></action> </keybind> <keybind ...

In MATE, right clicking on the menu and selecting "Edit menus" will get you the menu editor: Find the Telegram entries under the Internet category in the menu editor application, and uncheck one of them. The process is very similar for XFCE. Note that using this menu editor, you can completely customize the menu, move things around, and so on. It's pretty ...

This should be classified as "user error", but it may be worth noting what happened: I transferred an .XCompose file from another machine and it became corrupted in the process.

On an older PC one should consider using "light" desktops like LXDE, Xfce, Mate, or, even lighter, Openbox or Fluxbox. But as far as old computers go, the desktop is not the only thing to be considered: maybe equally important is the kernel and Ubuntu version. Therefore, use one of the above desktops but stick to the old still supported LTS (14.04 at the ...

at the moment Unity, Cinnamon, GNOME 3, KDE and LXQt are using graphic acceleration and MATE, Xfce and LXDE does not (by default). beside them there are much desktop-environments/window-manager which are mostly less resource hungry than the named one, but most of them won't be comfortable (for beginners). so i named only DEs which are easily to get on ubuntu,...
