If you are german, I need the translation for the 2 pcmanfm actions  ;)
Name[en]=Edit as Root
Name[de]=als Root bearbeiten


Name[en]=Set As Wallpaper
Name[de]=als Hintergrund einrichten
Name[xx]=Masaüstü deseni yap         (replace "xx" with a "tr" - i cannot write it, because the forum software thinks it is a command. sorry.)


the tr translation is from qanjaro.

But less RAM consumption, less disk space, and more speed.

Yes  --  lxqt-qt5-0.8.10B -- is definitely fast!

the lxqt developers have not optimized lxqt yet (as far as i know). they will do this later.

lxqt is not as lean as openbox, but it is lightest DE based on qt5. this is the great thing about it!

(a small windows in the middle of the screen. you can see it in the video at 0:13 - 0.14)

214 MB of RAM for the 64 bits installed in VBox. Not so much.

compton is heavy. You have it installed in mine, but not activated. I'm not sure it works well, but to see for the next ISO.

Before :

I'm using 32bit version. I can't connect my Android phone. Pcman is terrible: no shift+delete; I can't copy a link to a file and paste it to terminal. Otter crashes too often. Window titlebar of Skype's dialog window is missing. I can't figure out how to pin apps to panel. Suspend/hibernate  doesn't work on lid close, even if lid watcher is checked in settings. I think manjaro lxqt is fast, lightweight, but still immature.

@Escaplion: Are you going to replace Openbox with Kwin/kwindowsystem now that it is portable?

Hi Lukimya,  :)

The preceeding kwin stand alone was not really standalone. Each time we wanted do something, we had to install kdebase, etc...

I know than some devs are working for integrate that to lxqt, but really standalone this time. I have no news since a moment.

That and the porting to wayland are two known goals.

Now, must we integrate that to a Manjaro, or produce an "howto" to explain what to do ? No idea, I must try it first to see the speed and the weight.

But an lxqt kwin-based would be awesome.  ^-^

And one more thing: is there a way to get titleless maximised windows?
