NEW : Iso LXQT 0.7 alpha available !!!
« on: 09. May 2014, 13:27:36 »
Hi all  :)

Presentation

This ISO is the first official result of the merge between the teams Lxde and Razor-Qt. It's well described in THIS POST.

It's an alpha, but it's very stable and I use it as production environment.  It is nevertheless not intended for absolute beginners.
To made it, I used the kernel 3.12 LTS and manjaroiso 0.8.10pre1.

Its goal is to be light and complete. It will evolve soon to QT5. Currently based on Openbox, Kwin should be offered in the future.


Highlights

- sddm : login manager ;
- openbox : windows manager ;
- installer : Thus and Cli. manjaro-welcome included ;
- icons : oxygen, krat-myrelax, faenza ;
- terminal : lxterminal ;
- packages-manager : octopi :
- editors : 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, included but disabled by default ;
- others : catfish, file-roller, synapse.


Screenshots

To comply with the graphic Manjaro, I used :

- wallpaper official manjaro black ;
- icons : faenza green ;
- main theme : artwork-menda (thanks PhilM) ;
- openbox theme : ManajroFlat (thanks Rudylorren)



Known bugs and limitations

- due to a sddm issue, policykit doesnt work with autologin. So, for people using Wifi, you must configure it before autologin ;
- open a folder with a single click is disabled now. The team is working to allow it.

32 bits CD-Size without nonfree drivers and 64 bits with proprietary drivers are available.

Hi Esclapion.

That's fast! I only read the news about the merging of the two teams, a few days back & you already have an ISO available. I look forward to hearing the feedback.

Go well meantime & thanks for taking the time to do this.

Thanks again.  I'll have a look before the day is out.  Completely trivial but I really want to see if I can find that pizza cutter and replace it.

CLI installer working, thank you.  Menu is much improved and everything is in English. 

Qupzilla crashed on first launch, looked like it was trying to restore your last session.  Most visited shows your last searches, did you find Aurora for Openbox?  At least you weren't looking for porn :)

In the limited time I've spent with it my only complaints are with LXQT itself and a lot of that is probably just my complete lack of understanding how it all works.

Hi, live session works great.

In the GUI installer the mouse pointer gets inverted.

Do a  first sudo pacman -Syy to initialize the data bases of pacman before.

That solved the problem. Thank you.

I was playing with the Lxqt themes, and modified the original Ambiance to something more flat:



If anyone like it just etract and copy to /usr/share/lxqt/themes/
