Hi all,  :)

Based on Manjaro 0.8.9.1 kernel 3.13 stable, and Lxde-qt 0.5 development. Useable, but...

A lot of enhancements.

Highlights :

- sddm : login manager ;
- openbox : windows manager ;
- installer : Thus and Cli. manjaro-welcome included ;
- icons : oxygen, krat-myrelax, faenza ;
- terminal : qterminal, xterm, uxterm ;
- packages-manager : octopi :
- editors : geany, leafpad ;
- audio : manjaro-alsa, no pulse ;
- vidéo : flash, smplayer;
- game : aisleriot ;
- internet : qupzilla, hexchat, qbittorrent;
- office : libreoffice-installer ;
- burning : xfburn, isousb ;
- task-manager : qps ;
- composite-manager : compton and its gui. For the moment, I do not know how to run that.
- others : catfish, file-roller, synapse.

An initialization service do a synchronization of mirror list and of pacman databases at 1st launch.

The main problem remaining is the "style" part of the windows, very ugly. In don't know how to change it.

This ISO contains neither the proprietary drivers nor manjaro-printer. On demand, I can upload another ISO bigger with them.

In Vbox, 117 Mo of RAM at start.

yes it still looks ugly, but i have not found it way to install themes (not for the window border, but for the content of the window).
i have successfully installed it with the GUI installer in virtualbox.

after i started octopi, i already had an update waiting for me...
after that, i installed octopi-notifier to see updates in the future much faster. unfortunately, octopi-notifier has xfce4-notifyd as dependency.

there are still some bugs, but they are related to lxqt and not your work.

Thanks for your test.   :) The widgets of the taskbar are in development also, AFAIK.

Shows much promise. I had tried some time ago qt-razor (I uninstalled within a day), comparatively Manjaro's lxqt has potential.
I'll report some issues here but nothing serious, so you work out the bigger ones first.

o autologin
o numlockx
o single click on pcmanfm

FYI, I tried the following to no avail......(lets see, I may forget)
add "exec lxsession" "exec lxqt-session", etc to ~/.xinitrc
add "numlockx &" to new file ~/.config/lxqt/autostart (after installing numlockx)
modified ~/.config/pcmanfm-qt/lxqt/settings.conf "SingleClick=false" to "true"
sorry, that's all I remember now.

Thanks for your work and good luck.

Thanks all for your feedbacks.

I will answer first the questions who are the simplest for me :

1) autologin :

With sddm, it's very simple to do. At the last line of sddm.conf, add your login name. For me, pat, it would be :

# Name of the user to automatically log in when the
# system starts first time.
AutoUser=pat

A change is necessary in Thus to support autologin sddm during installation. I could do it self, but I would prefer that is done by PhilM for general use of sddm, and it's written in complicated Python ;

2) numlockx :

OK, I add it to my list of packages now. So the next ISO will have it by default. But there are a lot of discussions about it on the forum. Generaly, people prefer have it off (I prefer on, lol). What to do ?

3) One click for pcmanfm :

 I will investigate to see if it's already possible, or what to do.

I seem to be unable to start the networkmanager. My box moans about rc.d compatibility daemon being unable to start. Do you need the hardware specs ?

Hi Verändert,

Do you have internet, or not ? Sorry for the question, but you are in VBox.

It's probably a bit the same question than tarak.  ;)

The problem is that the nework-manager-applet seems not compatible. And I forgot  that, sorry. The lan will work. For the moment, I see two solutions :

1) as root, launch nm-applet : you will see a black area in the right part of the notification area, without icon. If yes, you can click right an left on this to enter the parameters of your wifi ;

2) I found in AUR a network-manager-applet-lite , that you can install with :

Code: [Select]
yaourt -S network-manager-applet-lite --noconfirm
You can also launch it (as root) with nm-applet. This time, you will have an icon.

If it works, it would be interesting to add a command gksu nm-applet or similar in the startup tasks.

I think a bit to replace NM by wicd, but I hesitate.  ::)

Try the 2), please. Maybe I forgot it.

(edit)

but you can only have Internet with RJ45 for the moment, I fear.  :(  You can also configure with nmcli, but i's not easy.

nmcli also only finds the RJ45. So it must be that RTL8191SE sucker.

Is this driver normally included in others ISO and fails only in mine ?

It seems so, yes.
