Detailed Description

LXQt is a lightweight Qt-based desktop environment. Fedora provides it since Fedora 22 as a group of packages. Now that LXQt is much more complete, it is time to provide a live spin to our users. Therefore some effort has been made to provide a first impression and it is ready for submission as an official spin.

Benefit to Fedora

Fedora provides one more option to its users and also catches up to some other distributions like Manjaro already providing LXQt versions of their distributions. The LXQt SIG got several requests for a spin.

A complete and lightweight Qt-based desktop experience.

Spin description

Fedora LXQt provides a lightweight, well-integrated LXQt desktop environment. In addition to LXQt itself it provides a small, well selected collection of applications like the QupZilla browser, which combines Chromium's rendering engine with a nice Qt experience. Other applications include the Trojitá mail client, the qBittorrent client, the Yarock music player and a set of some more commonly used applications. As all applications use the same Qt5 toolkit and the Breeze theme known from KDE, the desktop provides a unified and well-integrated style and theming. In addition breeze-gtk is provided to allow the user to integrate GTK applications too.
