[LXQt] 20200613 ISO preview

LXQt rebuild

I have been tinkering the LXQt community edition - bringing some long awaited attention to theming and package selection.

I have kept the GTK packages at a minimum - and some new Qt apps has been added - simply because they are Qt based applications.

I have created a couple of new lxqt themes

  • manjaro-lxqt-theme-arc-maia
  • manjaro-lxqt-theme-kvflatred

Both a full and a minimal ISO is available for testing from the usual location at OSDN.

There is no torrent available. I'll direct download for now, but I'm willing to seed also.

Oh wait, ERROR on direct also "Resource not found"

Ups - my fault - a double up on '-minimal-minimal' - fixed.

Was able to connect to the torrent, but no seeds at the moment.

After the necessary tweaking and nitpicking on small theme issues - both a full ISO (no office - yet) and a minimal ISO is available for testing.

Relatively new to Manjaro, had a VM running the 20.0.3 LXQt "stable" (?) image.

With this being a 20.0.3 "unstable" will these changes merge into the main branch, or what the equivalent is in the unofficial Manjaro spins?

LXQt is a community edition - it will be rebuild using stable branch in a couple of weeks.

Stable - Testing - Unstable is the set of packages used for a given ISO and the unstable branch is the entry point for new and untested packages.

This means that packages are rapidly changing to fix theming issues and bugs in scripts.
