So I am running Lubuntu 12.10 and I just switched my windows manager to xfwm4 following the instructions here:

Is there a lightweight way to snap windows in Lubuntu?

I was wondering, how do I add xfwm4-settings to the preferences panel?

I found this page: http://www.h-bomb.nl/2012/08/10/xfwm4-window-manager-lubuntu/

that showed how to add the Windows Manager Tweaks preference box but I'm still not sure how to add the settings preference.

  • Could you please explain why you found it necessary or advantageous to switch your window manager to xfwm4?

  • I wanted to be able to use the "snap to other windows" feature while still having a lightweight window manager.

  • That's why I asked. Openbox, by default, does have a lot of "poor man's aerosnap". The first sentence in the less voted answer in the link you provided covers that. And that's what I use.

Turns out it was a similar file:

xfce-wm-settings.desktop

I removed the following line:

OnlyShowIn=XFCE;

and it appeared.

  • Where could I find this configuration file?
