NEW : ISOs Manjaro 0.8.10 Lxqt-Qt5 ready for testing !
« on: 05. July 2014, 18:11:05 »
Hi all  :)


Abstract

These ISOs are the result of porting Lxqt from Qt4 to Qt5. They are formed from a binary repository (repolxqt-qt5) containing a snapshot of the development packages.

These packages are tested and made ​​reliable regardless of the further development.

This repository will evolve as new packages will be tested, a downgrade will always be possible.

Lxqt is a desktop both simple, fast and lightweight. It is intended to replace Lxde somewhere between Openbox and Xfce.

For now, this port is not optimized with respect to the boot time and memory size. It is for the moment slightly larger (20 MB) between Qt4 and QT5 but QT5 is still very recent.

For now, the minimum memory size required to use Lxqt is 384 MB

VBox installed the 64-bit version uses 162 MB on startup.


Screenshot

64 bits, in a Vbox of 384 MB. Themes Menda and Manjaro-flat; icons Humanity-wise (thanks to Rudylorren), Infinality :





List of applications included

Thanks.

Why not qtparted instead of gparted?

I tested it on my xfce, and it don't work. I can obtain the layout of the disk, but if I do a right-click on a partition, it breaks.

No more maintained since a year also.  :-\

I can confirm. I could look at one disk and it would crash every time when I tried to look at another.  :'(

Looks good so far, just needs some tweaks to the theme setup.

Minor bug: system language is set to English (US) but QupZilla interface is French by default. ;) (changing it in Preferences does work though)

I'm interested by the tweaks. For qupzilla, I have got a lot of problems for the 1st start (I solved it with a little script), so I forgot to change, thx. ;)

thanks a lot for this release. it is definitely much better than the last!
there is even a manjaro logo as the start menu and a much better choice of default software.
especially, i like the qterminal dropdown menu.
i was surprised when i saw that i can move the panel to the left screen edge. finally, this works!


i have found some bugs:

in the start menu are 2 sub menus i want to talk about:
- system (or system tools) with programs such as: date and time, dconf editor, printer settings, manjaro settings, users and groups, about lxqt.
- "settings" with programs: lxqt configuration center, printer settings, screensaver, priviledge granting, network management.
in my opinion, all program names written in bold should get deleted. they are already in the lxqt configuration center. all program names in italic should get moved to "settings" (if this is possible), because they are settings.

in the start menu are 2 sub menus:
- system (or system tools or similar). it contains qterminal
- accessories (or extra software). it contains lxterminal
this separation is not really logical and can be confusing. (you cannot do anything about this)

when you search for "setting" in synapse and press the down arrow, you see multiple identical entries for "manjaro settings" (and other entries). this is strange. it is not an important bug.

i found other bugs, but they already existed in the last version (and the version before that version) and they are lxqt bugs. you cannot do anything about it.


p.s.: i will keep testing.

Hi,

Thanks for the feedbacks. :)  I don't use printer, so I add it only at the end, because it's big, and  only in the 64 bits ISO.

I masked a lot of things in the menu, but apparently not enough. I will simplify that more.

I ran it last year on my Manjaro KDE install, and it ran fine. I'm building it now on my Netrunner Rolling system, I'll report back what happens.

We need somebody to maintain it and the porting to Qt5.   :o

Well no crashes so far, it does create and remove partitions fine but It does have a issues with formatting them. I'll look into it further when I have more time.
