Upgraded, now CTRL+A and LXapperance do not work

I updated my sources from stretch to buster. Everything went fine. Except 2 issues.

1) Geany is opened and I want to select all text with CTRL+A, instead CTRL+A opens the LAST terminal session I had, and it will even show all the text on the screen of the last terminal session. Closing it, and pressing CTRL+A again, will open it again. It typically takes 1 to 5 repeats of this until CTRL+A works normally to "select all text" on my system.

2) LXappearance simply does not work. No changes are applied ever. And in a file dialog of Thunar I used to have shaded rows in every other row in detail view, that is gone now. Some colors are off, I am sure this is a results of LXapperance not working.

Anyone know how to solve these two issues? below is a copy of my sources list...

You are still using terminator as terminal? Change to lxterminal or if you continue with terminator, disable shortcut for terminator.

Edit ~/.config/terminator/config.

[keybindings]
#  hide_window = <Shift><Control>a

Disable row abowe.

2) LXappearance simply does not work. No changes are applied ever.

Have you run both obconf and lxappearance?
Jgmenu => Preferences => Appearance, starts LXAppeance
Jgmenu => Preferences => Openbox => WM Preferences, starts ObConf
.

You must choose same theme both in lxaperance and obconf. If you choose Bunsen Dark He in lxaperance, you can not choose Clearlooks in obconf.

Do you want a dark theme? Why not use BL-Lithium. That theme works. Some themes might be problematic.

They apply to GTK apps only. You have to close/open the apps in question after "Apply"ing.

Re: Upgraded, now CTRL+A and LXapperance do not work

Something is broken on my system, opening and closing apps, even restarting the system does not apply any "Look and Feel" changes. I have other bunsenlabs PC's those all work, but they are clean installs, I did not upgrade those from stretch to buster. Also the Theme only changes the theme of "title bar" nothing else changes. Only thing I could find with similar problem was this old post... https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=130198

Re: Upgraded, now CTRL+A and LXapperance do not work

I tried a program called "gtk-chtheme" that seems to work, but every restart the selected "look and feel" option would change at random, so I had to uninstall it. After doing that, I can change "look and feel" but it only applys after a restart.

What happens if you use BL Utilities > BLOB Themes Manager to choose another theme collection?

You can use the command

$ bl-user-setup --refresh

to restore BL user files to default state. Run "man bl-user-setup" for more info.

Not in man: File ~/.cache/bunsen/bl-setup/log, is log of changed userfiles. You can easy use any diff-tool and examine diff from your old settings and default.

Thanks for the reminder - that will go in the manual.
EDIT It's there:

man bl-user-setup wrote:

A log is made at HOME/.cache/bunsen/bl-setup/log

This is correct, not an error.

Re: Upgraded, now CTRL+A and LXapperance do not work

Could you also post the file contents in /etc/apt/sources.list.d?

In your screenshot the Lithium themes aren't available

I'm just wondering if there was an issue with the upgrade

Ah, sorry for missing that. But, maybe it should be changed to
"A log is made at $HOME/.cache/bunsen/bl-setup/log"
