Make LXQT with Kwin a standard DE with 100% QT apps
« on: 12. December 2014, 02:13:08 »
I think it would be awesome if we had an official Manjaro supported LXQT + Kwin.

For the moment, kwin is not really stand-alone. To really work, it needs kdebase, etc..., so it will be a poor Kde.

Still not anywhere as bad as kdebase-workspace.

Now, who would like to document that dependency tree?

I'll start it:
kdebase-workspace dependencies: kdelibs>=4.11.14 kdepim-runtime lm_sensors libraw1394 qimageblitz polkit-kde xorg-xprop libxdamage libqalculate libxklavier xorg-xsetroot libxcomposite libxinerama xorg-xrdb libxres xorg-xrandr xorg-xmessage libusb-compat kde-base-artwork xcb-util-renderutil xcb-util-image ttf-font xcb-util-keysyms xcb-util-wm pciutils glu

Yes, but anything is better than gtk(3)!

A Qt equivalent of Xfce+Compiz, which is pretty close to what this would be, is of interest to me. I've no doubt there'll be an ISO along these lines eventually.

Yes, but those are mostly backgroung serveces and libs, besides Kwin (24,25 MiB) to kdebase-workspace (120,15 MiB), big difference. :)

How is Qt apps performing compared to gtk apps?

By this I mean, CPU usage, Memory usage and optimization.

Anyone know? Would Qt apps be faster and better responding than gtk apps?
