Hi Guix, 

Based on issue that I submitted before 
( http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/help-guix/2019-05/msg00372.html ) ,
lxqt-session copies an openbox related file (lxqt-rc.xml) to user's home directory, 
since this file permissions are set as readonly in `gnu/store`, users are unable to 
modify this file using openbox settings GUI, for this I submitted following patch to 
set proper permessions to `lxqt-rc.xml` file after initial copy to user's home 
directory.

That will make every file executable.

What about just:

  chmod u+w "$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/openbox"/*

?

One last thing: could you provide the explanation you gave in just one
or two lines of comment right above this ‘substitute*’ expression?

Thank you,
Ludo’.

Hi, 

>   chmod u+w "$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/openbox"/*

you're right, setting the write permission to lxqt-rc.xml is preferred.

I also add a comment line before permission modification phase and amend 
my last commit. 


Best, 
Reza
