Today (September 04, 2021) was a big update, over 200 packages.
Now my keybindings for window tiling don’t function anymore.

/home/me/.config/openbox/lxqt-rc.xml I defined

    <!-- Lubuntu specific. Keybindings for window tiling -->
    <!-- # HalfLeftScreen -->
    <keybind key="C-W-Left">
      <action name="UnmaximizeFull"/>
      <action name="MoveResizeTo">

I put my keybindings also into /home/me/.config/openbox/rc.xml and did a openbox --restart
Now the keybindings work as before.

Not sure if this is a solution, because my keybindings were defined always only in /home/me/.config/openbox/lxqt-rc.xml

Hi @neblaz,

With LXQt 0.17 there was this change:

Renaming the existing ~/.config/openbox/lxqt-rc.xml to ~/.config/openbox/rc.xml is correct.

@guiverc @kc2bez @wxl I think, this should be mentioned in the release notes for 21.10.
