Manjaro-Lxqt 16.04 released

The Manjaro Community is proud to present our new Lxqt Edition.
Manjaro-Lxqt aims to be light, fast and resource friendly, yet at the same time complete and ready to use for all typical everyday office- and multimedia-needs.

Downloads



What is changed

- menu item  leave connected to i3lock with blur
- gnumeric added to 64 bits
- calendar is now readable
- shortcut reboot moved at the right
- new sddm theme futuristic
- a lot of enhancements for french translation
- lila-hd icons theme added to the 64 bits (and to AUR)
- bug on default applications solved
- by default, no notification if a removable disjk is connected
- speedcrunch replaced by kcalc
- smplayer-mpv replace by smplayer-svn (AUR), skins and themes added
- white backgrounds changed (FFFFFF -> F8F8F8) for less eyestrain
- incosolata replaces monospace
- root partially themed
- administrator terminal works now
- capture tool added to the menu
- brand new repository, named manjaro-lxqt



Known default

It can happens than you get the message "A stop job is running for ..." at shutdown or reboot, and must wait 1'30". This is not specific to lxqt, I have that too under fce.

In Lxqt, "Magic keys" are activated. So, instead of wait so long, you can press :

Alt + Print screen + B for reboot, or
Alt + Print Screen + E for shutdown.

Do only that in this case, in can be too hard on running applications.

Well, the Krosoft theme from the previous release was more pain than joy. This one makes a Linux user feel @home.
The fast startup isn't anything new, is it?

one question:
i assume you already have included the new qt5.6 in this release?


It can happens than you get the message "A stop job is running for ..." at shutdown or reboot, and must wait 1'30". This is not specific to lxqt, I have that too under fce.
you are right, this is not caused by lxqt!

if that happens regularly, please do the following:
open these files:
      /usr/lib/systemd/system
      /etc/systemd/system
      /etc/systemd/system.conf
and change the following line to your liking:
       "TimeoutStopSec="

I've noticed that for me, this seems to happens when I have a USB storage device attached at shutdown.

Nice..... Installed, working and reconfigured. Each edition better than the last. Thanks again.
I think I installed/reinstalled more LXQT than all the other Manjaro's combined.

i agree. it is great to see all the theming esclapion comes up with.
i do not care about the look of my DE much, but esclapion seems to have an artistic streak.

also, i think lxqt is slowly picking up pace.
just look at the views of my wiki list of qt apps. a couple of weeks ago i looked at that number accidentally. i am impressed!

i think lxqt will become even more popular when ubuntu is released with unity8 (qt based DE).

Next time you should add the SDDM Configuration Editor to the repository and ISO to make it easy to change the theme, auto login, etc.
https://github.com/hagabaka/sddm-config-editor

You know, you can change the default background of sddm just by adding a theme.conf.user file in the theme directory that points to a different background image?
Code: [Select]
[General]
background=/usr/share/wallpapers/{background image file}
