Razor-qt: I hope it sticks
« on: 2012/07/10, 01:16:51 »
I tried out the live CD of Razor-qt and it was incredibly fast compared to my current aptosid  installation. I sure hope siduction continues to offer this DE option. :D
I would like to see a video display applet like KDE Display Manager. If anyone has a suggestion of an alternative please post it.

We plan to add Razor-qt to our release cycle with the next release.

I don't know the target group you have in mind for siduction/ razor qt.

We are atm testing networkmanager on the XFCE and LXDE flavours, not on QT/KDE yet. siduction is for everyone that wants to be in power of his machine and data and will go the extra mile to get there.

do you see razor qt as a QT only flavor of siduction?
I think this is a shame. Mix QT and GTk apps but not KDE and gnome and you have a usable system.

Razor-Qt is going to be a QT-only flavour. What users do after install is their own thing.

Hello @stavros,

this is an open forum for open minds, so, if you have arguments for your position, feel free to start a discussion, perhaps siduction team can learn about a further view of a linux user.

Kind regards,
  Holger

I thought the QT-only app selection was pretty good. I am stubborn though, about having to have Geany, SpaceFM, Gimp, and Chromium.
  I am pretty excited about Razor-QT, and hope it picks up. I made a couple themes and would like some feedback on where to improve.

  Anyone try out the V0.4.99 beta yet, or know whats new?

Well, what ever is included in the default installation... I personally like the decision. There are this and that kind of people, and I for my part welcome this decision. The decision what I will install lateron is mine anyway.

Networkmanager is a great solution though. But as I know there is no "Qt Only" frontend for NM yet.

What I'm more interested in, the target date for the next version was 01st of November. Are you going to hit the target date? If not, will there be a clean upgrade path from the current to the next release?

Kind regards - and thanks for picking up Razor-Qt into your releases! KDE sometimes drives me nuts nowdays, even though it has very nice features I'm still missing in Razor. But it more and more starts to get mature.

If we miss it, it won't be by far.
And yes, upgrades to 0.5 should work flawlessly. The only pitfall I can think of is the new format of config files, but as there is a conversion tool in 0.5 for that reason, things should be smooth.

Thanks for the answer. Well, so far so good - one thing I did forget to ask, will it be systemd or init based?
I start enjoying systemd :D.

It will be a while before we switch to systemd, we have not even started. We still have to much work, improving what we initialy forked from aptosid.
