Re: [PLUG] window manager features with lxde and debian

The problem is the the trackpad driver.  There's a whole lot of stuff that doesn't seem to be working under debian.  The power management isn't working right, it doesn't suspend when I close the lid and and the trackpad driver doesn't work right.  The wifi didn't work on the default install too.  I got the wifi working, but I don't want to also try to get the power management and the trackpad working.  I'm thinking about trying lubuntu instead.  I realized it was the trackpad and not the window manager when I looked at the output of dmesg.

Michael, I use LXDE on a Debian box, and I have no trouble left clicking and
moving windows.  (I didn't explicitly select a window manager, so I'm not sure
which one it's using, but I think it's openbox.)  For me, right clicking opens
up a new context menu (but I changed a setting somewhere to make it do this).
