Will it be possible to "cross-grade" an existing LXDE installation?

If it were me, I would start from scratch, but, that is only me. I think it would be wise.

I either give too many fucks or no fucks at all, it's like I cannot find a middle ground for a moderate fuck distribution, it's like what the fuck

Maybe I will.  I have a netbook Desperado LXDE that is working perfectly.  I kinda hate to mess with it, but I know LXDE is history, so I guess I will have to make a plan for it.  :)

You have really done a good job. The installation of LxQt works without any problem, the first test of the LxQt desktop into a virtual machine (KVM) was successful. All in all a very positive impression of the newly created desktop interface.

To have a first look, you might look at the pictures in the review I have linked to by switching to reviews on top of the page. Review itself is in DE :(

This may or not qualify as a bug, depending on how bad you want to support aging hardware, but I'll share it for your information.  On this motherboard from 2006 timeframe:

The boot begins with great hardware detection, all the way past the keyboard, and next

about 8 blank lines

Failed to detect live media
modprobe: module ehci-orion was not found in modules.dep

BusyBox v1.22.1 ............................


It booted right up on a Dell E6500 and looks great.  I need to wait for a 32-bit release to set it up on my Toshiba netbook.

Thanks guys -- nice job!

Installed in VirtualBox.  Prelim testing shows no obvious problems.  I've not needed to install anything from  2013.2 release, so was a bit suprised to see the latest installer requires a minimum of swap,  /root and /home.  I wonder if there's any way to still  install in swap and  / only?

Back to LXQT.  It's a very promising distro, hopefully we will see a little more unification in the settings in the future.

My LXQT desktop:



Thanks to the devs.

Looking at the wallpaper, I was thinking, shouldn't it be titled "Drink it Black"?

have fun
devil
Just to say : congratulations. You are the first, I guess...


Have been working / playing with this lxqt-dev-release since it came out. It was fun! Did a poor man's install on a stick. No serious problems till now. Am aware this is a 'Development Release' but looks to me rather as a release candidate.


Thank you.

This morning I was playing with LXQt on a VM:


-- added a startup script to ~/.config/autostart
-- added a launcher to plank
-- deleted a launcher from plank
-- installed some software including my favorite browser
-- fiddled around with multimedia items, tested videos and sound
-- used pcmanfm to browse my network and ssh into other machines


It all seems to work well.


Question:  What developmental issues should a user be aware of, prior to installing on a laptop that needs to be as stable as other DEs?

nobody really know - but https://github.com/lxde/lxde-qt/issues can give some hints. 8)

from my point of view LXQt is usable - but it can be that there are some bugs, that no one have seen before, because its new.

Thank you.  Another question (not answered by that git forum or Google): can I map an Alt-F2 keypress to launch the runner?  I fumbled around for awhile trying to add it in the Global Actions Manager.  The closest I got was this, but there is no /usr/share/lxqt/lxqt-runner/ directory on this system, so that was a dead end.


Thanks again.
