Since not yet mentioned: goldendict (the best dictionary app), luckybackup (the best backup tool), makemkv (not opensource but free, best DVD/Bluray to MKV convertion tool),  Cantata + MPD (the best audio player), LyX (the best document procssor), colord-fake (for printing packages without GTK cruft). gbscan (depending on gambas libraries other than Qt), flirc (remote app), convertall, copyq, xgrabcolor.

qtcurve, supports both Qt4 and Qt5 and the developer mentions in github his willingness to create a Qt-only config utility for it which will be the only means to customise the appearance in a Qt-only system.

ssx (instead of gksu) as su/sudo frontend, though not a Qt utility, doesn't depend on GTK either freeing me from another GTK cruft. Yet Octopi can't be used with it, you can use pacmanxg instead of octopi.

udevil for mounting work, eliminating the need for gvfs (though another and easy alternative may be easymount – http://qt-apps.org/content/show.php/easymount?content=157956).

wow. this thread keeps getting better and better...
keep it coming.

i am trying to use manjaro kde exclusively at least for the next few weeks. i just wanted to try a qt based DE and lxqt is still missing a couple of imho essential features.

Well, not an app, but a new functionality: To add custom actions to pcmanfm-qt see http://madebits.com/blog/comments.php?y=14&m=03&entry=entry140317-141947.

Yes, it works, tried and tested. Mines are below (change apps and icons as you like). Put them in /home/YOUR_USERNAME/.local/share/file-manager/actions.

Hi,

No alternative for gparted ? partitionmanager depends on kdebase, and qtparted is orphan and doesn't work...  :(

Mmm, I like vlc and smplayer as video palyers, clementine as audio player, qupzilla as web browser, acetoneiso as .iso burner.

But, what about for the text editor, the office suite and the image editor, without kde dependences? Do you have any ideas?

text-editor is juffed (recommended and done by the team). Same way, image viewer : lximage-qt

For office, I have nothing. libreoffice-installer, and maybe writer already installed ?  ::)

What about the image editor (like GIMP)?

I'm surfing on http://qt-apps.org right now, searching some good stuff, but I haven't find image modification programs as good as GIMP or Krita :(

I have one, I think, done by Leclanché, one of the lxqt devs : easypaint-git.

Absolutely not at the level of Gimp, but very light.
