Hi all,

I figured how to fix three of Lubuntu 12.10's issues.

1.  "Known issue":

"Graphics and Display

On some GTK3 applications, some tooltips have a black background and a
black font. (1065941)".

Solution: Edit the file
/usr/share/themes/Lubuntu-default/gtk-3.0/settings.ini, and change the



to: ntooltip_bg_color:#C0C0C0

2. Desktop notifications, like those of Pidgin, appear at the top
right of the screen, instead of the bottom right:

Solution: Run xfce4-notifyd-config, and change the option "Default position:"

to "Bottom right".

3. "Known issue":

"Calling file-roller inside pcmanfm doesn't work (978789)".

Work around: Install the package xarchiver. Then go to File Manager's
(PCManFM) Preferences->Advanced->Archiver integration, and select

I hope you will find these helpful.
