MX Linux With Lxqt DE

#1 Post by vamsi » Sun Jan 28, 2018 1:23 pm

I installed LXQT desktop on Mx Linux and it is working awesome and it is bit faster than xfce and for my old system this is so good and response is fast
Maybe in future XFCE become more heavy then LXQT is a good choice i think

I don't know much about LXqt status but I'm interested by this DE. Is it stable and suitable for daily use?

Yep installed it through terminal and the best part is you can use all the programs of MX like Snapshot tool and others and it is just simple and awesome but ofcourse for xfce there are so many themes available but still for LXQT will be good for usage.

Thanks..

Side comment: I am intrigued by LXQT as well, and will probably keep testing it as spins are developed. One thing holding me back is that I really like the Whisker menu system in XFCE, and I'm not aware of anything equivalent in LXQT, or any way to use Whisker there. As people develop spins I hope that is something that can be improved.

XFCE has an appfinder app that can be installed independently in other DEs.

Also, you could test Adrian's unofficial LXQT respin.

I have it installed as a VM and added the xfce4-appfinder app to the LXQT panel.
