nice, yes. But in Manjaro graphic chart, they prefer green :-( I find also that Ambiance is the best, maybe except flat-dark (rudy).

On openbox I use Adwaita and Adwaita-ob which I find quite nice looking... but you better like white/grey.

What's the best for the widget style, please ? GTK+ or Fusion ? And why ?

I use Fusion (and qtcurve, virtuality), but I'm almost gtk free. Since ISO will inevitably contain GTK it's better to stick with GTK because this is the only way of having a unified global style for Qts and GTKs, with mediterranian nigth for instance.

Hmm, OK, thanks for the explanation.  :)

i kind of agree - for now.
do you think gtk2 or gtk3 or both should be kept?

GTK3 is used by some system utilities (cups for example) if not by any default app. Having said that there're some workarounds to have cups etc. without GTK3 and I'll hopefully soon list all these together with some other tips as a wiki.

Many thanks in advance ! 8)

I'm also trying to get rid of GTK3 as much as possible.

The latest upgrade from 3.10 to 3.12 generated several bugs on my XFCE and LXDE systems without any other benefit (for my usage).

I didn't have time to investigate and tried to replace the GTK3 package (v3.12) with the GTK310 package in "extras" (and gedit310). Unfortunately this downgrade broke CUPS and I had to return back to GTK3 (3.12) and its ugly interface and side effects on several applications. >:(

I think that it would be better in the long-term for LXQT Manjaro to avoid as much as possible dependencies with GTK3 (at least for most critical applications).

You're wellcome, Phil67. … That's why the whole Linux community is in the process of abandoning GTK!!! … LXQt's long-term goal is this, I believe. And I'll focus in the wiki especially for geting rid of GTK, just as KDE without KDE and Qt-er!

Hi,

A bit "out of subject" (how do you say that ?), but E works like a charm without gtk3 & it's not so bad  ^-^

Ps: I don't remember my last print with my two laptops , it helps a bit, if i understand fine...

What's the best for the widget style, please ? GTK+ or Fusion ? And why ?
First, using an environment var to override the style is a bad idea.
Since Qt5 qtconfig tool is gone. The style name is provided by the platform plugin.
In the case of LXQt, that's lxqt-qtplugin. Qt will ask the platform plugin for the style name.
Please use lxqt-config-appearance tool and select a style from it then everything will work automatically.
Alternatively, edit /etc/xdg/lxqt/lxqt.conf and change the default style for your distro.
I personally will recommend "Fusion" since it's light and good-looking.
If you use GTK+, you can have the same look and feel as Gtk+ programs, but the price is Gtk+ must be loaded and used to paint your Qt widgets. You get nice gtk+ styles for the Qt widgets at the cost of increased resource usage.

Thank you for the explanation PCMan.

As a side note, the issue with Fusion is that it's impossible to customise, no way to customise colours. Well, to be honest, even GTK3 is better in that respect. A generous soul is needed for creation of a (better) qtconfig for Qt5.
