comment Replace notifyOSD with the XFCE version
As of Ubuntu 15.10, both notification daemon packages can be installed at the same time, but notify-osd will win and be in control of the notifications. So you'll have to remove it: sudo apt-get remove notify-osd and sudo killall notify-osd (or logout and login).

comment How to customize on screen notifications?
This tools provides the same options and does the same, but is a different one from notifyosdconfig. Looks a bit different, seems to be its Qt4 port. A bit more information is here.

These install instructions do no longer work in Ubuntu 15.04 and up. See this answer for an alternative.

Note that xfce4-notifyd cannot control the notifications if notify-osd is also installed (true in 11.10 and still in 15.10). To fix this without re-login: sudo apt-get remove notify-osd; sudo killall notify-osd.

comment How to install NotifyOSD-Config?
The notifyosdconfig package is no longer available for Ubuntu 15.04 and up in the webupd8 PPA. Checked according to this answer with: awk '$1 == "Package:" { print $2 }' /var/lib/apt/lists/ppa.launchpad.net_nilarimogard_webupd8_ubuntu_dists_wily_main‌​_binary-i386_Packages

If your xfce4-notifyd-config settings do not have any effect, it could be because Ubuntu's notify-osd is also installed – then, it will show the notifications, not xfce-notifyd. To fix this: sudo apt-get remove notify-osd and sudo killall notify-osd.

comment Getting MTP enabled devices to work with Ubuntu?
And yes, this answer applies also to "Ubuntu 13.04 [and above; where] storage access to external devices via MTP is supposed to work out of the box via a GVFS-MTP module". Because it may just not be installed out of the box. Even when your MTP device is somehow automounted already! (But giving you read-only access or other problems.)

Similarly, you get the Openbox context menu when right-clicking in a maximized window with the mouse pointer hitting the upper screen edge.

comment Lubuntu 15.04 lost battery indicator
The required panel item is called "Battery Monitor" under Lubuntu 15.10. After adding it, double-click it in the list of existing panel items and enable "Show Extended Information". It will show current laod, remaining capacity etc. when mousing over the panel icon. Can make switching xfce4-power-manager unnecessary for some.

comment Lubuntu 15.04 lost battery indicator
Works under Lubuntu 15.10 in the sense it installs (~15 MiB of stuff) and can be started manually. But how to integrate it as an indicator in LXPanel, I don't know.

comment How to get xfce4-power-manager to work in Lubuntu 14.04?
After all this, the battery icon might still not show in your LXPanel. Then start xfce4-power-manager-settings and enable "General → Appearance → Show system tray icon". Also, if "Menu → Preferences → Default application for LXSession" does not exist in your menu, install lxsession-default-apps.
