Title: What are your favorite qt4/qt5 applications ?
Post by: Esclapion on 11. June 2014, 21:29:56
Hi all,  :)

Following a suggestion of Excalibur ( ;) I search a list of the best (light, seaxiest, stable, not kdebase-dependent, ...) applications to integrate in lxqt (but not only).

A list  of some possibilities is available HERE (https://github.com/Razor-qt/razor-qt/wiki/3rd-party-applications).

Not using LXDE-QT. But looking at the list, I'll go for clementine, vlc and transmission-qt. They are the most used applications on my system.  :)
Hotot-qt was a good old memory though, until it stopped working.

Thanks. Vlc is Qt based ? (I'm not very happy with smplayer)

mpv
not really keen on any of the media players there
flacon and qtractor definitely, lmms is pretty good
qbittorrent
Calibre

That's about all I've used from that list.

Yeah. Just do a pacman -Si vlc and see what it depends on. And it is in the list you wrote in the OP.  ;)
Not even a video player can get me back like vlc does. Now I don't even try the others.  ;D

mpv is nice, also if not especially Qt.  :)

I would be interested on how do have increase/decrease volume on Up and Down. (0 and 9 are unusable on an Azerty keyboard).
Title: What are your favorite qt4/qt5 applications ?
Post by: Esclapion on 11. June 2014, 22:17:41
@ crazyg4mertz : OK, a very good candidate.  :) With mpv, but why not both ?

The list of the OP is only an example, absolutely not something to follow.

these are my favorite qt based web browsers (they are not kde based, so you do not need to install kdebase):
- qupzilla
- qtweb (AUR): is a lightweight browser, but it does not have any extensions and it lacks java support.
- otter-browser (AUR): otter-browser is still in early development (the beta 1 was just released - it wants to rebuild the opera 12 experience in qt5).

google chrome is NOT gtk based anymore. it uses its own toolkit called aura: http://news.softpedia.com/news/Google-Chrome-35-Officially-Released-Linux-Version-Ditches-GTK-for-Aura-443108.shtml
when i look at the dependencies of chromium, i still see gtk2. this is strange.


vlc is definitely the best media player. it is NOT dependent on gtk or kde - it just depends on qt4

Post by: excalibur1234 on 11. June 2014, 23:09:32
i have found two qt based file arching programs (they are not based on kde):
- peazip (AUR - it installs one orphaned package)
- b1-free-archiver (AUR - it reads a lot of formats, but can only create .zip and .b1 files)

this eliminates the need for 7-zip.

Thanks. Vlc is Qt based ? (I'm not very happy with smplayer)

I think it is. the only ones i am really missing is a browser, something like chromium or firefox would be convenient to have in QT.  Also a really cool office suite in qt would be dream

my favourites are
minitube, clementine-qt, qsopcast, kate, kopete and quassel. Those are software I use daily.
Title: Re: What are your favorite qt4/qt5 applications ?
Post by: LCJr on 11. June 2014, 23:18:52
-screengrab(AUR)  Been using it for screenshots since I tried Esclapion's LXQT alpha.
-pkgbrowser  Must have for me.  Makes browsing the repos a little easier and gives a lot information on packages.  Depends, installed files and their location, etc... 

Anyone know of any non-KDE QT paint/image editing programs?

- easypaint-git (AUR)
- pencil (AUR - but it depends on firefox (which depends on gtk2) - this is really strange)

these were also in the link provided by esclapion: https://github.com/Razor-qt/razor-qt/wiki/3rd-party-applications


these are qt and kde based programs i have found. so these are useless for us:
- kolourpaint
- krita
- digikam

i found an alternative to libreoffice writer:
- focuswriter (AUR)
- abiword (i have not seen any kde, gtk, or qt dependence in there - please take a closer look yourself)

if you like it simple, try
- juffed
- tea

I'll look at easypaint but at first glance it looks like it might be a little too basic.  Pencil looks like it is for designing GUI's.

I like Sayonara music player
Quote
Sayonara is a small, clear and fast audio player for Linux written in C++, supported by the Qt framework. It uses Gstreamer as audio backend.

QTbrowser used to be a very lightweight Portable browser for Windows but is is also for Linux...though I have never needed to try it on linux..it seems to have a download for debian RPMs and Bsd...etc just not Arch.

pdf viewer

currently, there is xpdf, very light (9,89 MB), installed. But it's not really qt.

I found 2 pdf reader :

1) pdfviewer (AUR) : Qt4, 13 votes, last maintained 2013-03-26,  0,87MB installed size,  5,40MB when removing
depends on : poppler, poppler-qt4


2) qpdfview (AUR) : Qt5, 90 votes, last maintained 2014-05-04, 2,3 MB installed size, 7,22 when removing
depends on : poppler, poller-qt5, qt5-svg

Thoughts ?

xpdf (the default pdf viewer right now) looks ugly and is not qt based. definitely get rid of it.

i have tested both. both are much better than xpdf.
pdfveiwer has a simpler interface.
imho, qpdfview is faster and has a lot more settings. i definitely prefer it.

mpv

A very good light player, thanks. May be installed in conjunction with vlc ?

What about mpv vs cmplayer ? Are they the same (cmplayer calling mpv) ?

I believe cmplayer is just a gui frontend for mpv, so essentially the same thing. Makes it more like vlc rather than like mplayer.
Title: Re: What are your favorite qt4/qt5 applications ?
Post by: Esclapion on 13. June 2014, 23:33:46
OK, thanks. It's what I think too. So it's a concurrent of VLC. But mpv alone is so leight...
Title: Re: What are your favorite qt4/qt5 applications ?
Post by: spectromas on 13. June 2014, 23:40:12

Indeed, it's all I use and have need for, works great and is easy to basic stuff with the display bar.
Title: Re: What are your favorite qt4/qt5 applications ?
Post by: Esclapion on 13. June 2014, 23:46:14
For my personal use, I think I will use mpv. But vlc/cmplayer can do more complicate things.
Title: Re: What are your favorite qt4/qt5 applications ?
Post by: Salinko on 14. June 2014, 01:01:46
I think mpv is probably the best media player available right now and paired with cmplayer, it covers virtually all the bases.
Title: Re: What are your favorite qt4/qt5 applications ?
Post by: Esclapion on 14. June 2014, 01:05:09
If we use cmplayer, we dont have mpv.

Apologies, I don't understand?
Title: Re: What are your favorite qt4/qt5 applications ?
Post by: Esclapion on 14. June 2014, 01:45:51
I think that cmplayer includes a mpv-like, but we can't call that alone.Or we install also mpv, but we have two applications with the same functionnalities. So, it's or cmplayer, big and concurrent of vlc, or mpv.
Title: Re: What are your favorite qt4/qt5 applications ?
Post by: Salinko on 14. June 2014, 02:22:56
As far as I know mpv is a dependency for cmplayer. However, I've not tried installing cmplayer, without having installed mpv (git version) so maybe it pulls mpv as part of its installation when installed in isolation?
Title: Re: What are your favorite qt4/qt5 applications ?
Post by: spectromas on 14. June 2014, 02:23:27
I'm confused, the aur page doesn't list mpv as a dependency but the github page does (http://cmplayer.github.io).
Title: Re: What are your favorite qt4/qt5 applications ?
Post by: Salinko on 14. June 2014, 02:53:30
I was taking my information from git too. However, pacman -Qi also doesn't mention mpv. Curious...

qpdfview is very fine; have been using it for quite some time. Can be integrated with LyX as well. Surprised to find that it's not the installed and default PDF viewer in the ISO.

i have heard the same thing.
sooner or later, there will be a lot of qt-only applications (not dependent on kde.

within a year (or two) we will see one big and popular DE switching to qt-only: unity 8.
it is confirmed that unity 8 (together with mir) will be the default DE in ubuntu 16.04.

Cmplayer have built-in mpv. The developer explains somewhere (possibly in github issues) why it has to be so for the time being. MPV has gapless audio playback, but it (and cmplayer) have no library/playlist capability like Vlc (see screenshot of my Vlc).
Title: Re: What are your favorite qt4/qt5 applications ?
Post by: Esclapion on 17. June 2014, 13:41:59
I think to a tandem mpv + vlc. Two in the same ISO can seem too much, but for me it's not the same goal.

mpv is incredibly light.

Since not yet mentioned: goldendict (the best dictionary app), luckybackup (the best backup tool), makemkv (not opensource but free, best DVD/Bluray to MKV convertion tool),  Cantata + MPD (the best audio player), LyX (the best document procssor), colord-fake (for printing packages without GTK cruft). gbscan (depending on gambas libraries other than Qt), flirc (remote app), convertall, copyq, xgrabcolor.

ssx (instead of gksu) as su/sudo frontend, though not a Qt utility, doesn't depend on GTK either freeing me from another GTK cruft. Yet Octopi can't be used with it, you can use pacmanxg instead of octopi.

But, what about for the text editor, the office suite and the image editor, without kde dependences? Do you have any ideas?
Title: Re: What are your favorite qt4/qt5 applications ?

You may want to take a look at this if you haven't already. The source is 11mb+. Not too big, not so small? Looks nice, though. Cross platform. No dependencies. Updated by the maintainer in February of this year. There are more screenshots and a video of the app in action (windows) here: http://b1.org

na easy just do "yaourt -Sb --export ~/build_dir b1-free-archiver" and edit the pkgbuild directly and it will build both the b1-free-archiver package and libudev.so.0 package then put in your local repo and add to the build package list

I do something as this, but I have a loop on the modified packages, and I keep them. Dont' forget that it's to do in 32 and 64 bits.

With too much manually operations, I'm almost sure I will forget some.

Btw, must I keep the 3.12 LTS or take the 3.14.8 ? Maybe a question for PhilM...  ::)

qCheckGmail (https://github.com/mhogomchungu/qCheckGMail (https://github.com/mhogomchungu/qCheckGMail)). There's a KDE version in AUR though it can be compiled as Qt-only (or even as a Lxpt panel plugin) too.

I use the fine old qgmailnotifier (http://qt-apps.org/content/show.php/?content=85979 (http://qt-apps.org/content/show.php/?content=85979)). Though not updated since 2008 its only glitch is a smaller icon.

You may need some gst or gstreamer plugins.

pepper-flash could not be configured to work with qupzilla as the developer mentions in github because of qtwebkit, though qupzilla-webengine-git (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/qupzilla-webengine-git/) or  qt5-webengine-git (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/qt5-webengine-git/) may.

Flashplugin requires gtk2 if you install it, but if you just download adobe flash package and extract libflashplayer.so and put it in usr/lib/qupzilla you're done without any gtk.

Post by: Esclapion on 25. June 2014, 11:43:14
Yep, but it's difficult to absolutely suppress gtk, 2 AND 3.

For example, to suppress gtk3, we must suppress gnome-keyring and network-manager. lxqt-kwallet and qconnman seem not be ready.

Not a Qt app, but doesn't depend on gtk either: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/gphotofs/ (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/gphotofs/)

udevil can eliminate the need for gvfs for mounting work, but I don't know how or if it hanles cameras. gphotofs handles them with minimum configuration. See its github page and Arch wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Digital_Cameras#GPhoto2_usage (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Digital_Cameras#GPhoto2_usage).

After the configuration you just need to assign two keyboard shortcuts to mounting and unmounting commands.

EDIT: Or those commands can be integrated to pcmanfm-qt.

Yes, if you install flashplugin from the repo it installs some dependencies, but if you just download the package and unarchive it and put the libflashplayer.so (which is really the thing doing the work) in relevant places (/usr/lib/qupzilla and maybe /usr/lib/mozilla) you're done without any gtk. One just needs to repeat this whenever libflashplayer.so (the adobe flash package) is updated.

(http://zupimages.net/up/14/26/f5fo.png)

It's a little bit cheat, but...  :D

- i have remembered this post:
ssx (instead of gksu) as su/sudo frontend, though not a Qt utility, doesn't depend on GTK either freeing me from another GTK cruft. Yet Octopi can't be used with it, you can use pacmanxg instead of octopi.
but i am not sure, whether it is a good idea to kick out octopi...

- i am pretty sure that lxappearance is just a system setting to change the theme/icon. if other system setting tools can do the same job, you can get rid of it.

- you have still exo installed. it is required by xfburn. i think you can safely remove it.

- libxfce4ui is required by exo. if you do not need exo you do not need this package anymore.

- gtkhotkey and libunique are required by synapse.

- gtkmm is not needed by any programm (at least in your current public lxqt image). i do not know, why it is installed.

- libglade is required by pygtk. pygtk is required by python2-notify and pywebkitgtk. python2-notify is not required by any program. pywebkitgtk is required by manjaro-welcome.

- vte is required by lxterminal. you can probably remove it without any problem.


so, manjaro-welcome and octopi are dependent on gtk2. thus, synapse, libreoffice-installer, and gparted are also dependent on gtk2. i do not recommend to release lxqt without these great (mostly) manjaro tools.
what is your opinion about that?
Title: Re: What are your favorite qt4/qt5 applications ?
Post by: Esclapion on 25. June 2014, 17:51:02

A lot of things, thx.

1) lxappearance is the only way to change the openbox theme. I dont know alternative

2) exo is bad, but what else than xfburn ? I searcher another burning program, and none. Maybe a  new topic for that

3)
(http://zupimages.net/up/14/26/1px4.png)

4) synapse is interesting, I think

5) gtkmm required by gparted. What else ?

6) I suppressed manjaro-welcome, but I always have that : to study

7) I dont know exactly why I must have lxterminal. Somewhere, it's maybe bound to octopi.

It doesnt disturb me to have some gtk2 or gtk3 tools. But each time I can replace one by an equivalent, I do that.

Sure, Octopi is good. Manajro-welcome also, I had it in the preceeding release. But it does the boot slower and for a desktop whose one of the main qualities is the lightness, I hesitate.

i agree. as long as there is no alternative, keep using the gtk2 dependent package.
octopi, synapse, manjaro-welcome, thus, libreoffice-installer, and gparted are all dependent on gtk2. therefore, you should keep gtk2 until you find equivalent alternatives.

but you can get rid of gtk3. gtk3 is more modern and bigger (and it introduces incompatibilities with each release, but that is another  topic). lxqt becomes lighter when you do not have any gtk3 dependencies anymore.
i am not sure, but i think you already have eliminated gtk3 from your lxqt release. is this true?
(your latest public release image of lxqt is NOT independent of gtk3)

1) lxappearance is the only way to change the openbox theme. I dont know alternative
ok. then, i think it is important. keep it until it is possible to change the openbox theme within another lxqt settings window.

2) exo is bad, but what else than xfburn ? I searcher another burning program, and none. Maybe a  new topic for that
3)
(http://zupimages.net/up/14/26/1px4.png)
sorry, i was not aware that lxqt still uses xfburn. i am not sure, but i think we have already search for a qt only CD/DVD burnining utility without success. maybe it would help to start a new thread about it, because threads are easier to find (just in case in the future somebody finds that topic and knows a good qt only CD/DVD burning utility).

4) synapse is interesting, I think
5) gtkmm required by gparted. What else ?
6) I suppressed manjaro-welcome, but I always have that : to study
synapse, gaprted, and manjaro-welcome are important programs and simply the best available programs. please do not remove them. if this means we have to keep gtk2, then please keep gtk2.

7) I dont know exactly why I must have lxterminal. Somewhere, it's maybe bound to octopi.
vte and lxterminal are dependent packages. i have removed lxterminal from the current lxqt release and octopi keeps working. octopi uses qterminal. i think you can safely remove lxterminal (and vte).

mmm...
You could still have Manjaro Welcome without the overhead by including the directory /usr/share/manjaro-welcome (only 447.8kb). Could you not simply add a desktop launcher called "Manjaro Welcome" to start qupzilla and load with /usr/share/manjaro-welcome/index.html? It's basically a simple single HTML page that could even be edited if necessary to remove the items that start the installers if you have desktop launchers for them or unless the links work properly in qupzilla, of course. MAny of the links are to external URLs and are of the form "cmd://link?http://forum.manjaro.org". These could be rewritten, dropping 'cmd://link?' and tagged so they open the link in new tab.

Not a qt app but, I just installed it and was pleased with first use. Seems I had all dependencies but two already installed (no undesirables required, it seems) . So, build and install went quick. Program itself is small, loads quickly with a pleasing interface, and is easy to use. Took only 9 seconds to convert a 4:30 MP4 to MP3.
curlew
Easy to use, Free and Open-Source Multimedia converter for Linux in Python
Convert to more than 100 different formats.

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/qwinff/ (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/qwinff/)
I don't know, qanjaro. Maybe not. curlew may convert more audio and video types than the others. But, maybe it's overkill. feff seems limited. qwinff does only audio/video with ffmpeg. But with the adition of document and image conversion, ffmulticonverter seems to do more than all of the others. 'FF Multi Converter converts audio, video, image and document files between all popular formats, using ffmpeg for audio/video files, unoconv for document files and ImageMagick for image file conversions. '

If it matters, qwinff is the only one of the three to have been updated this year. ffmulticonverter worked quickly converting same mp4 to mp3 but, seems to manage fewer audio and video types than curlew, and has a rather plain-jane interface. Had to install 2 additional dependencies for ffmulticonverter to manage image and document conversions.

Following a suggestion of Excalibur ( ;) I search a list of the best (light, seaxiest, stable, not kdebase-dependent, ...) applications to integrate in lxqt (but not only).

Hmmm… Some of you may like this.

Bespin developer Thomas Luebking's new creation for Qt5, Virtuality:

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/virtuality-qt5-git/ (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/virtuality-qt5-git/)
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/virtuality-qt4-git/ (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/virtuality-qt4-git/)

Seems the Qt5 config utility affects Qt4 apps as well though you need to install Qt4 one too to set the virtuality theme for Qt4 apps.

Virtuality has already three subsets/presets (flynn, sienar, virtualbreeze) though they're just some minor hardcoded color sets in very few areas which you can achieve via virtuality's control panel anyway.

As always, you need to add one of these to your ~/.bashrc (and then relogin):

export QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE=virtuality
export QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE=flynn
export QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE=sienar
export QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE=virtualbreeze

Theme/widget style itself is too experimental or modern for me; hopefully it quickly gains the vast configuration options of the late Bespin.

Changed colours aren't honoured by Qt5 apps and this issue has already been reported in github (I'll participate after this as well).

There's also the new version of quantumstyle (a different qt engine by a different dev):

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/kdestyle-qsvgstyle-kde4/ (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/kdestyle-qsvgstyle-kde4/)

Don't pay attention to "ked" parts in the above aur naming it's a qt utility as virtuality, but this one is a Qt4 app (at the moment).

It seems Qt theming requires a thread of its own.

The new UI uses (for now) the stock Qt theme. This isn’t ugly per se, but it does look a little out of place on the Ubuntu desktop, especially compared to previous builds. Memory usage is also reportedly higher, in some cases jumping from 60MB when idle to more than 178MB. Those on low-end devices should resist the temptation to try this [experimental] build — at least until this particular bug has been addressed.

How to test Qt-based dropbox on your system

1. First of all quit Dropbox either bu right clicking on the dropbox icon on the task-bar or running dropbox stop command in the Konsole
 2. Download the experiment buld from this link
 3. Extract the zip file (it would be a hidden folder)
 4. Cd to the ‘dropbox-lnx’ folder
mukt@the-mukt-online:~ > cd /home/mukt/Downloads/.dropbox-dist/dropbox-lnx.x86_64-2.11.0/

5. Then run this command:
dropbox start

You have the Qt based dropbox running on your system.

If you want to go back to old Dropbox, simple stop dropbox again, delete the downloaded and extracted folder. Then run dropbox from your menu.

I took a quick glance at the html version. Looks great! But first, I must sleep before looking more closely. Also, I'll check about account creation on the wiki. It may be locked due to the recent trolling. Maybe I can get the sysop to create an account for you and notify you by PM? I can create the page, if necessary.

Yes, and it's what I use now in lxqt.

For a pure Qt system:

tkpacman –for package management; doesn't require gksu, uses just terminal for authentication and is better looking than pacmanxg without 32bit libraries.

gtksu –for authentication; can be compiled as a Qt5 utility (see the relevant part of the wiki: https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php?title=HOW_TO_MAKE_LXQt_PURER_(LIKE_KDE)_AND_LEANER_WITHOUT_GTK#Password_authentication_and_GUI_package_management (https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php?title=HOW_TO_MAKE_LXQt_PURER_(LIKE_KDE)_AND_LEANER_WITHOUT_GTK#Password_authentication_and_GUI_package_management))

yapan –for update noitification; more capable than octopi-notifier and can be integrated to any package manager at the expense of a bit higher memory consumption.

Hi,

For me, its a replacement for evince, so only for pdf, but lighter : 2350 kB vs 12059 kB for evince (and evince has a lot of dependency).

otter-browser version 09.02 beta2 has been released and is available in AUR. i am writing this post in it.
it supports bookmarking and adblocking (with adblock plus filter lists) now.

look here: http://otter-browser.org/


flash videos (e.g. on youtube) still do not work out of the box. but the development speed of otter-browser is impressive.

it is interesting to read the planned features for future versions, too: https://github.com/Emdek/otter/blob/master/TODO

otter has this on their to do list:
Quote
- extensions (Firefox and Chrome APIs support)
does this mean we will be able to use firefox add-ons AND google chrome extensions in otter?

maybe it depends on the backend otter uses?

- Blink backend (with upcoming QtWebEngine, when API will be useful)

it sounds to me like they plan to support chrome extensions, because they plan to support the blink backend (the google chrome backend) as well. i think it is impossible to have firefox add-ons with the blink backend.

Perhaps you are right but the devs clearly mentioned firefox addons. To be honest i don't want you to be right because i would love to see firefox addons in otter since chrome extensions lack when compared with Firefox addons  ;D.

Edit: sorry a typpo wanted to say FF addons but instead repeated chrome

Phototonic can be used for setting wallpaper as well. From the dev:

That's acutally possible starting from 1.03. Two ways:
a) manually edit ${HOME}/.config/phototonic_XXX.conf ; adding something like

OK that it. Flash is out of here!
QMPlay2
It can be built in qt4 or qt5. AUR is qt4.
QMPlay2 supports most formats of movies, music and subtitles
QMPlay2 supports video playback and Internet streams (eg. Youtube, http, rtsp, rtmp, mms, and many others)
Improved support for "youtube-dl"

It does not mention this. But You can install gst/gstreamer to add to Youtube support. I have both youtube-dl and gst/gstreamer.
Even though I'm using aur. Cpu is way lighter then flash video. Ram ok too. Can be any were from 50M to 150M of ram(150M took me like 10 hour)
http://zaps166.sourceforge.net/?app=QMPlay2 or http://qt-apps.org/content/show.php/QMPlay2?content=153339 His main web page is in Polish.  ;)

And for the Web Browser with all the install gst/gstreamer. You can used a userscript called "ViewTube" Have tons of support to common video stream site.

The only reason I will see flash being used by anyone is flash game site. Witch only be used by younger audience.

I was going to ask what's wrong with deadbeef-qt. But, then I found this:
But for me it's a pitty that the "deadbeef-infobar-plugin" is only workin' with gtk-ui. So deadbeef-qt it's not for me. Still lookin' for an alternative...
But then, I don't really understand why that should be a problem, except for those who must have the deadbeef-infobar-plugin, because there are no gtk dependencies for deadbeef-qt. Maybe the dev for deadbeef-infobar-plugin would be responsive to a request for a qt version?

notepadqq has a little less settings than juffed, but that does not need to be a bad thing.

how did  you manage gtk2 dependency for libfm ?
Title: Re: What are your favorite qt4/qt5 applications ?
Post by: qanjaro on 05. December 2014, 20:18:32
libfm-git must be gtk-free, though I've got gtk2 now because of firefox hopefully soon to be replaced by otter-browser when it's based on qtwebengine and has improved bookmark  and password management.

Post by: mt12345 on 05. December 2014, 20:38:06
libfm-qt-git fails to build.

I replaced firefox with opera.

I has never been  big big fan of pcmanfm, In past I was using qtfm (qt5).
(andromeda is awkward and I don't like doublecmd)

If I remove pcman/libfm will I loose ability to mount disks and pendrives?

Post by: qanjaro on 05. December 2014, 20:44:14
Haven't tried libfm-qt-git for some time, but libfm-git seems to be gtk-free.

Opera (new, Chromium based one) needs gtk.

You don't need pcmanfm for mounting. Previously I've used ldm, but recently replaced it with easymount (no AUR, but easy to install: http://qt-apps.org/content/show.php/easymount?content=157956).
Title: Re: What are your favorite qt4/qt5 applications ?

OK I will try libfm-git.
I use opera12 (I dont care it's outdated  :P )

Post by: mt12345 on 05. December 2014, 23:30:20
I removed gtk2. libfm and pcmanfm were removed as dependencies.
(lximage depends on libfm too but I replaced it with qimageviewer earlier).

I couldn't install libfm-git because of conflict with libfm-extra.
lxqt-panel and lxqt-runner depend on libfm-extra.
after reboot I lost wallpaper and panel-mounter doesn't work. Looks like it works only when pcmanfm runs in daemon mode?



Title: Re: What are your favorite qt4/qt5 applications ?
Post by: excalibur1234 on 05. December 2014, 23:49:55
you can replace the functionality of lximage-qt with qimageviewer and screengrab (lximage can also take screenshots).

i do not like pcmanfm-qt (it is dependent on gtk2) and it is heavily integrated into lxqt. i do not know exactly how, but it sounds reasonable that it handles wallpaper and mounting...
try easymount for mounting. now, you only need a qt wallpaper changer/app.

do you know a qt replacement for gnome-keyring (or do you just not save any passwords)?
Title: Re: What are your favorite qt4/qt5 applications ?
Post by: qanjaro on 06. December 2014, 00:28:20
Now, for wallpaper and desktop icons you need pcman to be running in daemon mode, but if you only need wallpaper-ing you may use feh.

I prefer phototonic as image viewer and wallpaper setter (via feh or pcman).

pcman doesn't need gtk really, but lxqt currently seems to need for some things, but then I've removed some time ago lxqt (and feel guilt –a bit!).

So in my system if I try to install libfm-git pacman just warns me to replace libfm and libfm-extra with libfm-git, i.e. no appearent issue here.

I don't know a replacement for gnome-keyring and yes, don't save passwords.

easymount depends on pmount. So first install pmount from the repo. Then download easymount from the above link. Extract the easymount archive; go to that extracted directory; open a terminal in that directory; then one at a time issue these commands:

qmake

sudo make install

You need to enter your password at the last terminal command.

Now you've installed it and you can autostart it if you want.

qtfm is quite nice, but had inconsistent mime handling in my experience. Then again pcman can be installed without any gtk. When I attempt to remove all gtk pacman offers to remove only firefox and some obscure deps, mostly of firefox.

hahaha quite the opposite here!

qtfm looks into deafult mimeapps.list, besides it has nice built-in mimetype editor (!) whilest pcman doesn't seem to know whats going on. it suggest opening images in lximage. well, lximage was uninstalled couple of days ago!

Been using that for a few weeks now and it works great.  With MPV and MPlayer.  I haven't checked if SMPlayer in the Manjaro repos supports MPV or not.  Some 14.9's have it, some have it partially supported, some have no MPV support at all.  Gotta love it when new features are being developed and you're not sure which version to use outside of git/svn.

The topic states qt4/qt5 so I assumed one or the other works.

New file manager with custom actions and mime type handling, similar to qtfm but seems a bit better. Not tried extensively, but it works with wayland too:

Code: [Select]
yefm -platform wayland

Fine work, thank you excalibur.

Opera (new) uses gtk. Haven't heard of QScanner before; nice find.

Media converter – hybrid-encoder
Text editor – qtcreator
