@bjlockie thanks, though one thing that would be nice is a comparison to the old compton. Does one use more or less resources?

wxl added a comment to T59: fix keyboard shortcuts.

In case it wasn't obvious, I believe I have a solution that will make the lxqt-globalkeys patches work. If people could use the above PPA to test (see here for a testcase), that would be great. This is very important because if we don't have some sort of solution here, we won't be able to include our own Lubuntu-specific changes to the lxqt-globalkeys config, which means we won't really be able to do anything with the shortcuts. Raman's put a lot of hard work here that I would not like to see go to waste, nor would I like to make some rash decisions before release to deal with the fact that the Super key conflicts. So please go test!!!

Please drop the shebang on the desktop and then you won't need to override unusual-interpreter or script-not-executable though I still advise removing chmod +x lubuntu/*.desktop from the root Makefile. Also it looks like it's executable. You can undo that.

Strangely xdg-desktop-menu forceupdate isn't really behaving nice, but a log out and back in does the trick. I can change various attributes but that indeed seems to have no effect.

It does it on a live iso, I wouldn't think there was any cache.
I also did try this on a different .desktop file and I tried a logout and login as well as a reboot. They all still show.

I don't know this one off the top of my head, but you should see what environment variable the menu reads from to determine whether or not to show menu items. Probably in lxqt-panel.

@wxl I am confused here. I added NotShowIn=LXQt; to the desktop file yet it still shows in the menu. I re-read the spec and still don't see where I went wrong. Any ideas?

We should bounce this to 20.04 IMHO. There are some issues still upstream, this one impacts us. Then there is this, this and this.
To top it off, I can't see where you can remove packages, only add them, we'd have to tinker on that too. As much as I would like to see it, I don't think it is ready for us at this time.
