Cool! This will save me a lot of effort and time. I am running LXQT on Ubuntu 14.04 with the Lubuntu daily PPA. They are sending me 10 to 20 updates every day. Will Yaourt also update?

I don't think than lxqt will have so many updates, my ISO is recent. They are probably for Ubuntu?

In all cases, yaourt -Syua must do the necessary updates, yes. We are connected directly to the git of lxqt.

Very good work on your ISO. It is more complete than the Ubuntu spin I had to build from scratch. And I've used Razor-qt for 15 months and know that DE very well.

Lots of GTK applications, seems kind of wrong for the Qt version of LXDE. Perhaps there could be a version that is more Qt pure? Other than that it seems rather nice, I look forward to trying it out. Finally a DE that will be Qt without being KDE. I love KDE but it is so resource hungry that I really feel the need for something lighter. Also can we talk about LXQt's logo? So pretty

the problem is most of the qt apps are in aur only..........
notable exceptions which can be had in iso instead of gtk counterparts are transmission-qt/qbittorent, quassel,tea,clementine/qmmp,
trojita

True but LXQt is pulled from AUR too. I mean no reason not to use the aUR really.

Can you rely on aur for creating an iso ... lxqt is an exception( the whole purpose of iso itself is to create an iso based on lxqt, other apps must be from repos only). i use an app from aur only when it is absolutely necessary....

Indeed. Anyone can contribute to AUR and if the user doesn't check the installs or updates, probably no one will. Therefore AUR is less secure than the mother ship. Check for alternatives there prior to installing from AUR.

I think with LQqt hopefully growing, more packages will move to main repos.

How about adding an eMail client like trojita?

Until recently, some lxqt modules of AUR were not compiling.

Currently, there still lacks two modules.

Hi  :)

Until now, I didn't know trojita. But it's in community, so it's easy to add with pacman.

I used Thunderbird for years and now directly gmail. If I added an eMail client, I think it would be Thunderbird, well known.

Anyone know if it is possible to build/compile PCMANFM-QT from AUR for another desktop other than LXQT?

I have Razor-QT that I wanted to install PCMANFM-QT for that but when I tried to install from AUR it failed, I am assuming because it is has been built for LXQT only in AUR.
