Title: Adding LXQT to KDE install - revisited
Post by: bad_aptitude on 2016/10/21, 07:19:10
About two years ago we were advised to not add LXQT to a KDE installation because both QT4 and QT5 would need to be installed. Is that still the case, or can LXQT now be added to a KDE installation?
I am hoping to migrate to LXQT eventually since KDE is getting more and more bloated with each  new version.
Thanks

For me this is forbidden.
There's only crap out.

Or, why are not Distris with all desktops "in an ISO offered".   ???

What about it?  https://forum.siduction.org/index.php?topic=6394.0;topicseen

@bad_aptitude - one could co-install LXQt without problems but i would like to suggest a lxqt installation in a own partition. Maybe i'm a little bit  picky if it comes to installations - i may have valid reaseons, depending on the point of view:
* Debian LXQt comes with only the needed tier 1 KF5 dependencies - the same as KDE use - so no problem
* Debian LXQt has xfwm4 asl WM - if one prefer kwin, i see no problems - the only reason for not include kwin-* right now is that LXQt has no tools for kwin-configuration, so one has to use the KDE ones - beside that i see no problems, kwin is a fine and able WM.
* One has to check twice which daemons come with kwin/KDE - it might be that there are/could be conflicting packages - not from packaging, but in functionality. That might hurt lxqt-qtplugin basicly.
* both kde and lxqt use sddm - so no problem

At least its a matter of taste, it should run just fine.

Thanks Melmarker, for your thoughtful and comprehensive response.
Not being a power user, I think I will just sit tight with KDE.

Great advice Melmarker that's how I have mine and "knock on wood" everything seems to work correctly on both.  ;)
