Customizing Lubuntu is mostly down to personal preference. I like things a certain way and I’ve listed a tweaks that I do on a fresh install of Lubuntu/Openbox.
Change notification time:
Firstly, we need to install xfce notification daemon by
sudo apt-get install xfce4-notifyd
Then we can change the preferred settings by invoking the following command:
Volume notification via fn key:
This is an fundamental for any operating system and Openbox can have it too.
The way to get this working is by installing the xfce volume notifications daemon
sudo apt-get install xfce4-volumed
Then we navigate to Menu -> Preferences -> Default applications for LXSession
Click the Autostart tab
Then all we need to do is check the XFCE Volume Daemon box
Then a restart is in order to get the fn+vol keys notification working.
