    Except in Fedora 28, lxqt freezes when logging in. Maybe it is the noveau drivers, maybe it is the 4k resolution, maybe Fedora is garbage as I am being able to see today. And I thought it would be perhaps an evolution from CentOS.

      Fedora has been great for the past 4 years to me.

      I’ve used Gnome most of the time though. Only recently started looking at other desktops environments. In the past, I have run LXDE, XFCE. Recently tried KDE again, and WOW!!! It is beautiful. A modern take on an ‘Classic‘ layout. The desktop does everything!

      Anyways, Fedora has been very good to me. I jumped after Ubuntu 14.04.

      I am trying lxqt right now.. installing is running.

      We will see..

    Really nice article and clear instructions to install LXQT desktop on Linux Desktops.

    If you purged lxqt wouldn’t you wipe some lxde libraries if you were running lubuntu?

    Thank you for your great post!

    BTW, on my machine, I needed to install “openbox” manually,
    because when I logged in LXQT at first time, no display manager could be found.
    Is it required to install “openbox” too?


    • Ravi Saive says:


      Yes, Openbox is the default display manager for LXQt desktop environment, but you can use a different display manager to use with LXQt..
