Just annotations of little "how to's", so I know I can find how to do something I've already done when I need to do it again, in case I don't remember anymore, which is not unlikely. Hopefully they can be useful to others, but I can't guarantee that it will work, or that it won't even make things worse.

[WORK-AROUND] Bug on dragging windows of KDE/QT apps under openbox

If you accidentally (or not) click/hold and drag the left mouse button from the inner area ("client" or "any empty area") in a KDE/QT window, it starts to be dragged/moved along, but it's not dropped when you release the button, unlike the behavior with GTK windows (at least GTK2, I guess). You got to press "enter" or "esc", I guess.

Presumably that doesn't happen under KDE proper/kwin, maybe not even with other window managers, but I didn't test it.

The work-around for this in openbox is to configure whatever KDE theme to drag only from the titlebar (where you do that varies from theme to theme), which doesn't have this bug. Chosing "use the GTK theme" on KDE will do it too, but unlike some GTK apps, you cannot drag from the menubar.
