LXQt: The Lightweight Qt Desktop Environment
LXQt is a desktop environment that is designed to be especially energy-efficient and suitable for older systems. It is based on the widget toolkit Qt and uses SDDM as its recommended/standard display manager.
For developer, please see Teams/LXQtPackagingTeam for more information.
LXQt is available only for testing and unstable – it will be fully in the next stable (Stretch). There are no backports planned for Jessie – the needed dependencies are not there and it would not be wise to backport them. So please use testing or unstable or be patient. Thanks.
One could install LXQt on a fresh minimal system with apt. Depending on one's need this could be:
apt install lxqt-core
apt install lxqt
apt install task-lxqt-desktop
There will be live-iso's soon.
