LXDE-common 0.5.6 released.

After 3 years of silence in the package which some people think of as LXDE core package (though LXDE does not have one), the little bugfix release happened. Not much of changes, just some updates.
New release tarball download link:
lxde-common-0.5.6.tar.xz – SHA1: 4ce700232870db2601ca21b508e65ecc920a54e0

Changes since previous release 0.5.5 (see git log for details):

  • The “Fullscreen” keybinding in Openbox rc.xml file changed from F11 to Alt+F11, Many applications already have this keybinding bound to own processing so let not interfere with them.
  • Installation: added fix for invalid $sysconfdir in configure in case of $prefix is /usr.
  • Fixed incorrect path to pcmanfm.conf file in startlxde script.
  • Changed location of all configuration files placement from somewhere in system shared data directory to location under system config data directory.
  • Added keybinding for ‘lxpanelctl menu’ on Alt+F1, the same as it is in GNOME and Lubuntu.
  • Added keybinding to launch gnome-screenshot when PrintScreen is pressed.
  • Installation: updated autogen.sh to support automake > 1.11.
  • Changed default distribution tarball format to xz instead of gzip.

New LXDE Components available

PCMan released new LXDE Components and improved settings structure of LXDE.

1. LXInput. This is a config tool used to configure your keyboard and mouse under LXDE.
2. The lxde-settings-daemon: The original lxde-settings is moved from lxde-common to a new separate package and was renamed to lxde-settings-daemon. In addition to the theme, now the settings daemon will configure keyboard and mouse for you. (works with lxinput config tool)
3. lxde-common 0.4: some fixes were done, and unused files are removed. lxde-common is now a noarch, data-only package, and doesn’t contain any binary program in it. The settings daemon is now in lxde-settings-daemon.
4. menu-cache 0.2.5: binaries are now moved to libexec.
5. The original lxsession is deprecated, and will be totally replaced by lxsession-lite since X11 session management is problematic, complicated, and rarely used by applications. GNOME now replaced XSM with dbus, too. So we don’t need that anymore.
