New ISO Lxde-QT bêta 64 bits available !
« on: 12. April 2014, 19:26:43 »
Hi all,  :)

This release follows the 32 bits announced HERE, more :

- a lot of technical and cosmetics improvements ;
- proprietary drivers ;
- gimp

- compton is integrated, but not activated (some problems woth compton.conf)

DOWNLOAD LINK (0.8.9.3)

Size of the ISO : a bit < 900 Mo, installed : 2.7 Go, RAM in VBox : 154 Mo, Kernel 3.12.

not included : manjaro-printer, manjaro-pulse (choice), turbulence

Some screenshots with black theme :





This release is fully operable. Each part of a window can have diffferent colours with qtconfig-qt4, etc... Gnome themes can be mixed with Openbox themes.

May be more customizing possibilities than xfce(I run the risk here  ;D) , but with the speed of Openbox.  ;)

i installed it in virtualbox and customized it a little. i also spend about 2 hours in it.

it looks nice and i did not notice any obvious bug.
i can tell you put a lot of effort into this release. well done!

i found 1 strange thing: when i install kernel 3.14 and boot it, manjaro lxqt (in virtualbox) does not fill my whole desktop - only a very small area of it. with kernel 3.12 everything looks alright.

one question: where did you change the background color of windows to black?
(i would like to exchange black with a dark grey...)

Hi,  :)

Thanks to all for your tests.

Initially, this release was built with the kernel 3.14. But this kernel doesn't work on my PC with Catalyst.  So I reverted to the 3.12 LTS,   not add problems of  a new kernel and problems of a new DE. Few kernel subreleases later, I will take again the 3.14, but not now. It's a pity, but...

I wish also. May be a value to change directly in a theme. The current is the Mediterrean, but is a mix of the Gnome version (in /usr/share/themes) too big, and of the Openbox-3 version (in the home) very small.

My main problem for the moment. It's a bit difficult for the user to change that, and need simplification.

I must also modify a bit thus to allow auto-connect during installation.

For the remaining, some translations are missing, but I saw in the mailing list  that the Lxde-QT team was working on it. But they have a lot to do : for example study QT5 and prepare Wayland.

Confirm working with linux313 (I'm using nvidia)
o Fixed autologin (in sddm.conf)
o Still unable to fix numlockx
o PcManFm still unable to single click

Changed wallpaper (don't think its' an issue changing themes but didn't try it).
Nice selection of preinstalled apps.

Thanks again.

All the upcoming 0.8.10 installation media is going to use 3.12 series OOTB anyway. :)

To have a white background for the windows, you can choose here Gtk+ instead of Cleanlooks :



It's only a trick, but it solves this problem for the moment. May be it's due to the use of a gtk theme on a qt support.  ::)

@ gohlip : for the problem of numlockx, add to the end of ~./xprofile :

Code: [Select]
/usr/bin/numlockx on &
or off, as you want.

Hey, it works! Thanks. You're a great help.

ps: Previously, I tried various combinations of "numlockx & "/usr/bin/numlockx" "/usr/bin/numlockx &" in
.config/lxqt/lxqt.conf
.config/openbox/autostart
/etc/sddm.conf
/etc/xdg/lxqt/lxqt.conf
/etc/xdg/openbox/autostart

Why is this thing in .xprofile?  heh heh heh

ps: your 2 bugs you mentioned. I did a "pacman -Syu" - nothing needs updating. So I guess nothing for us to worry about.

Great work. Thanks again.

Didn't even try the CLI this time:)

Memory usage on actual hardware with Nvidia drivers.  Would probably be a little lower in another 15 minutes or so once systemd and gvfs settle down.  I'm actually rather surprised given the last time I tried Razor it was using ~350 Mb and had next to nothing installed.

After a few minutes poking around.

Menu:
1.  Language set to English(U.S.).  System Tools has French entry 'Ajouter/supprimer des logiciels'.
2.  Internet.  The Qupzilla and Web Browser entries are a bit redundant since both launch Qupzilla.
3.  Accessories.  The 'About XFCE' entry looks a little out of place:)
4.  Preferences.  LXQT Power Management doesn't have an icon at least with Faenza.

The theming is a bit confusing.  You have lxappearance and the new QT version of same?  Lxappearance for GTK themes?

Suggestion.  Set up a custom theme for Root so when you're running PCManFM-QT as root you have a clear visual indicator of that fact.  For example SpaceFM sets the top panel to red when running as root.
Brain just engaged edit>  Ignore this one.  'Open as Root' was removed in the latest non-QT PCManFM so I wouldn't be surprised if it was gone in next QT version.
