What are your favorite qt4/qt5 applications ?
« on: 11. June 2014, 21:29:56 »
Hi all,  :)

Following a suggestion of Excalibur ( ;) I search a list of the best (light, seaxiest, stable, not kdebase-dependent, ...) applications to integrate in lxqt (but not only).

A list  of some possibilities is available HERE.

Not using LXDE-QT. But looking at the list, I'll go for clementine, vlc and transmission-qt. They are the most used applications on my system.  :)
Hotot-qt was a good old memory though, until it stopped working.

Thanks. Vlc is Qt based ? (I'm not very happy with smplayer)

mpv
not really keen on any of the media players there
flacon and qtractor definitely, lmms is pretty good
qbittorrent
Calibre

That's about all I've used from that list.

Yeah. Just do a pacman -Si vlc and see what it depends on. And it is in the list you wrote in the OP.  ;)
Not even a video player can get me back like vlc does. Now I don't even try the others.  ;D

mpv is nice, also if not especially Qt.  :)

I would be interested on how do have increase/decrease volume on Up and Down. (0 and 9 are unusable on an Azerty keyboard).

@ crazyg4mertz : OK, a very good candidate.  :) With mpv, but why not both ?

The list of the OP is only an example, absolutely not something to follow.

these are my favorite qt based web browsers (they are not kde based, so you do not need to install kdebase):
- qupzilla
- qtweb (AUR): is a lightweight browser, but it does not have any extensions and it lacks java support.
- otter-browser (AUR): otter-browser is still in early development (the beta 1 was just released - it wants to rebuild the opera 12 experience in qt5).

google chrome is NOT gtk based anymore. it uses its own toolkit called aura: http://news.softpedia.com/news/Google-Chrome-35-Officially-Released-Linux-Version-Ditches-GTK-for-Aura-443108.shtml
when i look at the dependencies of chromium, i still see gtk2. this is strange.


vlc is definitely the best media player. it is NOT dependent on gtk or kde - it just depends on qt4

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.

I think it is. the only ones i am really missing is a browser, something like chromium or firefox would be convenient to have in QT.  Also a really cool office suite in qt would be dream

my favourites are
minitube, clementine-qt, qsopcast, kate, kopete and quassel. Those are software I use daily.

-screengrab(AUR)  Been using it for screenshots since I tried Esclapion's LXQT alpha.
-pkgbrowser  Must have for me.  Makes browsing the repos a little easier and gives a lot information on packages.  Depends, installed files and their location, etc... 

Anyone know of any non-KDE QT paint/image editing programs?

- easypaint-git (AUR)
- pencil (AUR - but it depends on firefox (which depends on gtk2) - this is really strange)

these were also in the link provided by esclapion: https://github.com/Razor-qt/razor-qt/wiki/3rd-party-applications


these are qt and kde based programs i have found. so these are useless for us:
- kolourpaint
- krita
- digikam

i found an alternative to libreoffice writer:
- focuswriter (AUR)
- abiword (i have not seen any kde, gtk, or qt dependence in there - please take a closer look yourself)

if you like it simple, try
- juffed
- tea

I'll look at easypaint but at first glance it looks like it might be a little too basic.  Pencil looks like it is for designing GUI's.

One browser I think needs more attention is qutebrowser..  it's still in alpha stages,  but it's nice to know theres another alternative on the horizon
