LXQT install help
« on: 16. November 2014, 14:36:01 »
Has anyone been able to successfully install LXQT on Manjaro?  I keep getting a non-described error that hangs the install/ build at:
[100%] Building CXX object CMakeFiles/lxqt-qt5.dir/lxqt-qt5_automoc.cpp.o

My most recent attempt was with the installation via pacman of: lxqt-desktop-git  0.8.0.12.g137e4b1-1

how do you try to install?

on real hardware or virtualbox?
on manjaro net edition or another edition of manjaro?
what commands do you use for installation (it sounds like you use pacman to install git versions?)?

I am using pacman and installing from my cinnamon manjaro desktop.  Everything runs on my Samsung 5 Ultra Netbook in full control of everything.  My only Windows install runs in virtualbox. 

I am one of those guys who likes to run and select desktops from the login screen.

i am installing lxqt at the moment. i want to install the latest packages from git in a quick and dirty way:
1. i installed manjaro net edition
2. i run these commands:
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman-mirrors -g -b unstable
sudo pacman -Syyuu
sudo pacman -Syyuu
sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux317
reboot
sudo pacman -S base-devel yaourt
yaourt -S lxqt-desktop-git oxygen-icons pcmanfm-qt-git qterminal-git openbox obconf-qt-git sddm-git --noconfirm
3.
Code: [Select]
sudo systemctl enable sddm
reboot


if you prefer more GUIs and do not want to use the latest packages (but all git packages from lxqt), do this:
1. install manjaro openbox edition and update it
2. run these commands:
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -S base-devel yaourt
yaourt -S lxqt-desktop-git oxygen-icons pcmanfm-qt-git qterminal-git --noconfirm
3.
reboot. in your login-manager, select "lxqt-desktop"



at the moment the "yaourt -S lxqt-desktop-git" fails with an error in lxqt-admin-git. i just ran
Code: [Select]
yaourt -S lxqt-admin-git
manually. then, i started the lxqt installation, again.

so you want to install lxqt on a stable system.

include this repo and install all packages from there: https://forum.manjaro.org/index.php?topic=17216.0
just edit your /etc/pacman.conf file (as root) and add these lines at the bottom:
Code: [Select]
[repolxqt]
SigLevel = Optional TrustAll
Server = https://sourceforge.net/projects/repolxqt/files/$arch

then, you can install stable lxqt packages from octopi/pamac/pacman.
i recommend to install lxqt's file manager, too: pcmanfm-qt

Hi excalibur1234

I tried your initial recommendation and received the following error:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
boost-libs: /usr/lib/libboost_filesystem.so.1.57.0 exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

UPDATE: I renamed the offending file and the updates are underway.

when did you encounter that error?

with the following command?
Code: [Select]
yaourt -S lxqt-desktop-git oxygen-icons pcmanfm-qt-git qterminal-git --noconfirm
if this is the case, try to install the part with the error message manually (this means without the "--noconfirm" flag)

Here's the latest error....

Linking CXX shared library liblxqt-qt5.so
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lQt5Xdg
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

By the way 3.17 hangs with a kernel panic error on boot.

on manjaro net edition, i can do
Code: [Select]
yaourt -S liblxqt-git
without any errors.

maybe you should try to install the stable version of lxqt:
Code: [Select]
yaourt -S lxqt openbox obconf-qt-git oxygen-icons qterminal

So here is what I ended up doing that seems to have worked:

Code: [Select]
sudo pacman-mirrors -g -b unstable
sudo pacman -Syyuu
sudo pacman -Syyuu
sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux317
reboot
sudo pacman -S base-devel yaourt
reboot
yaourt -S lxqt openbox obconf-qt-git oxygen-icons qterminal

As this was being run, there was an update notification via pacman (It was greybird theme). I ran the update once all the initial installation (of the stable version) was complete and ran:

Code: [Select]
reboot
On reboot LXQT was available on my mdm Login screen.  At login the following error appeared:

GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1.Error.Failed: An authentication agent already exists for the given subject

I played with the settings for a bit, then went back to xfce opened a terminal window and ran:

Code: [Select]
yaourt -S lxqt-desktop-git oxygen-icons pcmanfm-qt-git qterminal-git --noconfirm
Once again this command died with the following error:

Quote
-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
See also "/tmp/yaourt-tmp-mark/aur-liblxqt-git/src/build/CMakeFiles/CMakeOutput.log".
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
    Aborting...
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build liblxqt-git.

So I have stable LXQT but not the 'new stuff'.
