Hi all  :)

I'm trying to do one. For the moment, it's only ready for x86_64. To use it, you must (as root) :

SigLevel = Optional TrustAll
Server = http://esclapion.free.fr/lxqt/$arch/repolxqt/

and then :

Code: [Select]
pacman-mirrors -g && pacman -Syy && pacman -Su
3) install the main packages of the lxqt library :

Code: [Select]
pacman -S lxqt-desktop-git
4) install a windows manager :

Code: [Select]
pacman -S openbox
5) install a file manager :

Code: [Select]
pacman -S libexif pcmanfm-qt-git
6) install a terminal (lxterminal, qterminal, etc...) :

pacman -S qterminal-git
7) install a login manager (sddm, lxdm, lightdm, etc...) and activate it :

Code: [Select]
pacman -S sddm-git
systemctl enable sddm

8) install a pack of icons (faenza-green-icon-theme, etc...)

Code: [Select]
pacman -S oxygen-icons
9) reboot your PC, and think to choose as session Lxqt-session  ;). You must obtain something as :

I'm attempting to install LXQT from the repo mentioned above. I'm getting a 404 error for lxqt-policykit-git-0.7.0.1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz.  Just wanted to let you know.  Thanks for the tutorial and the ISO. :)

True, it isn't in my repo.  :(  Probably because polkit-git is missing.

It's too late now (1h40), I add both tomorrow begin of  afternoon.  ;)

(edit)

I must first understand why it's good on my PC.

Finally. Installing and updating from aur is needless hassle for a complete desktop :)

If you prefer 30' of compilation... lxde-desktop is not a complete desktop.
