Ubuntu – Manage Keyboard Shortcuts in Ubuntu with LXDE


My problem is that after I switched from GNOME to LXDE I can't use my keyboard shortcuts for volume correctly (I can't unmute). Whenever I change the commands in ~/.config/openbox/lubuntu-rc.xml nothing changes. What could be the reason?

At the login screen you can choose your session, and openbox uses different .xml files for the different sessions:

  • for Lubuntu sessions:

  • for LXDE sessions:

  • for Openbox sessions:


After editing the correct file either execute openbox --reconfigure or log out and log in again to apply the changes.
