LXQT is ready for testing

May 15th, 2014 by

The stable branch of LXQT, the QT branch of LXDE is now available for openSUSE:13.1 and openSUSE:Factory.
Following are a few screenshots of lxqt, which will be quite familiar to any of you that dabbled with Razor-qt in the past.

Here is the Main Desktop (note, this is using the “flat” theme, and the default openbox windowmanager)
lxqt-main-desktop

LXQT can offer a fully composited desktop, through the compton compositor, and includes a GUI tool for configuring.
compton-conf

Resulting in a highly configurable composited desktop:
lxqt-qterm-dropdown

LXQT also provides a powerful configuration tool, which allows you to tweak things the way you like…
lxqt-config-center

So if you’re looking for something to try out, please, give it a shot.

Please keep in mind, we are considering this a “Beta” quality release, so there are still some rough edges.

Additionally, lxqt is currently un-branded for openSUSE, so I certainly wouldn’t turn down help from folks that are into helping out with that sort of thing.

Stable packages are available for openSUSE:13.1(i586, x86_64, armv6l and armv7l) and openSUSE:Factory (i586 and x86_64) at:
X11:lxde:lxqt

Unstable Packages (latest git pulls), are available for 13.1 and Factory, i586 at:
devel:cloverleaf:lxqt:UNSTABLE

And if you happen to be running Fedora, i586 and x86_64 packages are available at:
devel:cloverleaf:lxqt:fedora
