As I said that day, there are several commits after latest release. total 7 affecting the concerned file. But among those commits, other files are also changed. So I will have to try to create a patch of each concerning commit and then merge all patches into one. *Then* try to apply that patch. A bit busy today. Have a marathon tommorow. Will give it a shot on friday.

The_LoudSpeaker added a comment to T30: Theme GRUB.

In the /etc/default/grub,
GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE is set to 'hidden' by default for new installations if only lubuntu is installed and not dual booted.
This makes grub to not show up in single installation systems. Thus, not showing the theme. It should be changed to menu or be unset. I don't know which task this comes under. Maybe cala settings? @wxl @kc2bez @hmollercl any inputs?

About not finding package, I am not sure I understand what happened. But I just upgraded a vm from 19.04 to 19.10 and Installed the ppa and was able to use sudo apt install lubuntu-grub-theme.
Maybe you tried adding the ppa to a 19.04 system.

I took the most recent code. Checked out to the xdg-config branch. Then built it using normal instructions. It did build and also got installed locally and that was how I tested it. I will try tomorrow without checking out to that branch. Will get back once done.

Hey! @wxl I tested this pull request It works fine. Even the Super+Fx key bindings work fine as they should. I will now try packaging it. The only problem is, the patch is not on master branch, its on xdg-config branch. So after downloading source, I will just checkout that branch and then build it. hopefully it will work.

We should add a script at the end of installation, after it sets bootentries and makes directories under ESP, which will set

GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian

but the problem we will have, as @apt-ghetto said in the task description, is that lubuntu-grub-theme will not use the hummingbird logo, I will lookup what can I do about that.

Hey @wxl I commented out the media keys from lxqt-rc.conf and added them to globalkeyshortcuts.conf. Those which were transfered were Mycomputer and Calculator. I couldn't add the Terminal key. I tried setting it to something else and then change it by editing the file but no. that entry disappeared after a reboot.
Also, added a couple of new media keys, (got hands on an extra keyboard for sometime):

Yup! I have been noticing it since day 1. That's why I wanted to see how it looks on actual hardware in bios. What's the default resolution on actual hardware in bios?
Idk why the icon is looking pixelated, I have used the one with maximum pixel size 512x512. If smaller are used, they do not look as much detailed in larger screens.
About top logo being scrunched, it is because, it's a part of the background. There is nothing like "Title-logo" which could point to the logo file. So I had to paste it over earlier background.

For openbox and for lxqt, I am assuming that both the local config files are generated from the ones kept at /etc/xdg/openbox/lxqt-rc.xml and /etc/xdg/lxqt/globalkeyshortcuts.conf (Tell me if I am wrong.)

GoToDesktop = C + A + $direction cannot be added to lxqt-global config. It works from openbox conf.
Reason:
Apparently, 'panel/desktopswitch/left' or 'panel/desktopswitch/next' doesn't work as a command.
