EinarMostad added a comment to T128: Alt-Tab and Alt-Shift-Tab feature request (openbox conf).

After some looking in the source of lxqttaskbar (part of the source for lxqt-panel), I was unable to find a function for switching to the next task. I only found the code for switching to a specific task number from 1-10 as is already implemented in Lubuntu at the end of the source code.

I have done some digging and this is what I have found thus far.

Just wanted to say that although I am not on IRC right now, I haven't forgotten about this. This day just turned out a bit heavier than expected at work, so I haven't got as far as I thought I would by now. I have read a bit on freedesktop.org about standards for window handling, but haven't had time to look into the source of lxat-globalkeys or dive deeper into packaging. I also need to set up a VPS with an IRC bouncer. I think tomorrow afternoon and the weekend will be a good time to dive deeper...

Thank you! I'll be in touch soon. And thank you for giving me this chance to learn and hopefully contribute something! :-)

Maybe I can to a certain degree? I haven't tried, so I wouldn't know. Ok. I need to brush my teeth and go to bed now, but I am looking forward to learning more and hopefully contribute something useful to Lubuntu. :-)

Ok, so maybe 20 is a good bet then. I am not fluent in C++ (or any other programming language really. In the 90s I did some very entry level 68k Assembler on a microcontroller and played a lot with HyperTalk/HyperCard, so unless the source code is really well commented, the cpp manual will probably be greek to me. I have just started reading a bit about python to dip my toes into the programming water again, but maybe C++ would be more useful?). I like to learn stuff, so hopefully that will help...

Ok. I would have to look into that as well. It's been a few years since I was on IRC last time.

OK. I am going to brush my teeth in 29 minutes and go to bed. Tomorrow, I have a long work day from 8 to around 20 with some open time in the middle. I will start to read up on the packaging documentation then. Maybe I could get in touch on IRC in that break or in the evening after I come home? (I have a one hour commute home as well.) I am at Central European Time (UTC+1), so that would be somewhere around 15-17 UTC or after 20 UTC.

Perfect! I don't use any of them much, but I could easily fire up an IRC client.

You are right. I have plenty of time to translate the rest. If the offer still stands, I'd be curious to learn about packaging and development! :-)

That sounds very interesting, but I am afraid to take on responsibilites that I am unable to fulfil properly. I already have some work waiting with translating LXQt and tsujan tools to Norwegian Bokmål that I should finish before taking on more. But thank you for the offer! :-)

Strange. I was trying to take s screenshot and hitting PrtSc did nothing, but when I do it now, it launches Screengrab. Hm. Maybe some sort of user error?

D'oh! I have completely misunderstood the move to phabricator. I am sorry for wasting your time! (Maybe the wiki shold mention that Phabricator is only used to track development so others can avoid the same misunderstanding.)

This release page (https://lubuntu.me/eoan-released/) says under bugs: Another great method to get involved is bug reporting. If you notice an issue, please file a bug using the instructions on the Lubuntu Wiki. The Lubuntu Wiki brings me to this page: https://phab.lubuntu.me/w/bugs/ It explains that you need a launchpad account and how to file a bug on launchpad.
