You can configure this by opening up the run dialog (ALT+F2) and typing in gnome-power-preferences. > > With a Synaptics touchpad.

Is there a way that works that anyone knows? There seems to be no gui option in the Openbox configuration but you can open up the configuration file ~/.config/openbox/lubuntu-rc.xml and try to delete the following lines under the <context name="Desktop"> paragraph: <mousebind button="Up" action="Click"> <action name="DesktopPrevious"/> </mousebind> <mousebind button="Down" action="Click"> <action name="DesktopNext"/> </mousebind> After saving and a relogon it should be gone. > > When I double click on a text file (txt extension) nothing happens.

Just create a text file and right click on it go to properties and set the right programm to 'open with'.
