I think mpv is probably the best media player available right now and paired with cmplayer, it covers virtually all the bases.

I think that cmplayer includes a mpv-like, but we can't call that alone.Or we install also mpv, but we have two applications with the same functionnalities. So, it's or cmplayer, big and concurrent of vlc, or mpv.

As far as I know mpv is a dependency for cmplayer. However, I've not tried installing cmplayer, without having installed mpv (git version) so maybe it pulls mpv as part of its installation when installed in isolation?

I'm confused, the aur page doesn't list mpv as a dependency but the github page does (http://cmplayer.github.io).

I was taking my information from git too. However, pacman -Qi also doesn't mention mpv. Curious...

i have found two qt based file arching programs (they are not based on kde):
- peazip (AUR - it installs one orphaned package)
- b1-free-archiver (AUR - it reads a lot of formats, but can only create .zip and .b1 files)

this eliminates the need for 7-zip.

Would be fine if it's integrated to PCManFM-Qt instead of the GTK ones.

pdf viewer

currently, there is xpdf, very light (9,89 MB), installed. But it's not really qt.

I found 2 pdf reader :

1) pdfviewer (AUR) : Qt4, 13 votes, last maintained 2013-03-26,  0,87MB installed size,  5,40MB when removing
depends on : poppler, poppler-qt4


2) qpdfview (AUR) : Qt5, 90 votes, last maintained 2014-05-04, 2,3 MB installed size, 7,22 when removing
depends on : poppler, poller-qt5, qt5-svg

Thoughts ?

qpdfview is very fine; have been using it for quite some time. Can be integrated with LyX as well. Surprised to find that it's not the installed and default PDF viewer in the ISO.

i have heard the same thing.
sooner or later, there will be a lot of qt-only applications (not dependent on kde.

within a year (or two) we will see one big and popular DE switching to qt-only: unity 8.
it is confirmed that unity 8 (together with mir) will be the default DE in ubuntu 16.04.

Cmplayer have built-in mpv. The developer explains somewhere (possibly in github issues) why it has to be so for the time being. MPV has gapless audio playback, but it (and cmplayer) have no library/playlist capability like Vlc (see screenshot of my Vlc).

I think to a tandem mpv + vlc. Two in the same ISO can seem too much, but for me it's not the same goal.

mpv is incredibly light.

QtCreator can be used as an excellent and lightweight all-in-one utility (text editor, markdown editor/converter, note taker and to-do list/phone/address book manager). See here for a how to: https://forum.manjaro.org/index.php?topic=14360.0
