LXQt desktop environment screenshots

LXQt is a desktop environment derived from the merger of the LXDE-Qt and Razor-qt projects. It is supposed to tap the best features of LXDE-Qt and Razor-qt and offer a desktop environment that is easy on resources and user-friendly. Because it is built atop Qt technologies, you can call it a resource-friendly version of KDE, though there is really no true basis for comparison, other than the fact that they use the same development toolkit.

It is still not ready for primetime, so this is not one you want to install on your main desktop computer. Even if you do, its packages might not yet be available for your favorite distribution. Siduction, a distribution based on Debian, is one that has made installation images of their LXQt edition available for download. The images shown in this post where taken from a test installation of that edition in a virtual environment. If you want to experience firsthand what the LXQt desktop feels and looks like, you may download an installation image from here or here.

For the record, there’s nothing about LXQt that I find particularly interesting or impressive. The desktop environment that I’m really looking forward to is the one that will ship with Deepin 2014.

So here are the screenshots.

This is the default desktop, which features a bottom panel and a dock at the top edge.
