I don't have access to my computer right now. In about a half hour I will though

bigmanke6 commented on 2021-01-04 15:25 (UTC)

Why would you wait for deletion approval? You should remove lxqt-organizer-git as dependency ASAP. Right now, it is impossible to install lxqt-desktop-git.

sperg512 commented on 2021-01-04 14:27 (UTC)

Actually organizer is entirely abandoned. I'll file a deletion request for it and will later remove it from depends on here.

sperg512 commented on 2021-01-03 19:09 (UTC)

@bigmanke6 I'd rather not do that honestly. Later, I'll try to fix any build issues and patch them if I'm successful. Thanks for letting me know though

bigmanke6 commented on 2021-01-03 17:27 (UTC) (edited on 2021-01-03 17:31 (UTC) by bigmanke6)

lxqt-organizer-git's upstream repository is quite dead and it doesn't build. Could you remove from the dependency list please?

MartinX3 commented on 2020-09-21 15:19 (UTC)

Thanks sperg512.

bjlockie commented on 2020-09-21 00:49 (UTC)

The previous maintainer stopped maintaining so this is currently orphaned. I'll take up the maintainer status and fulfill these requests.

Please let me know when things need to be updated. I personally use the official package and will try to keep things up-to-date, so please check and make sure that hasn't already been updated. Thanks!

MartinX3 commented on 2020-07-30 14:51 (UTC)

Please sync this package with LXQt 0.15

librewish commented on 2020-01-20 12:02 (UTC) (edited on 2020-01-20 12:11 (UTC) by librewish)

add lxqt_wallet-git, lxqt-organizer-git as deps and kwin, lxqt-kcm-integration-git, sddm-config-editor-git as optional deps also qlipper as opt dep for clipboard management

and kvantum-qt5-git as opt dep for alternate qt style

bjlockie commented on 2019-12-06 21:46 (UTC) (edited on 2019-12-06 21:47 (UTC) by bjlockie)

I couldn't get it to work. :-(

MarcusE1W commented on 2019-12-06 17:23 (UTC)

@bjlockie Have you had success? Would you mind sharing the sequence?

bjlockie commented on 2019-09-13 03:45 (UTC)

I am trying to create an archlinux install that lets me build all of lxqt from git.

It appears I need to build some of the other "git" packages before this will build. Is it possible to get the dependencies in the order they will build?

Aanok commented on 2019-08-27 07:19 (UTC) (edited on 2019-08-27 08:15 (UTC) by Aanok)

What @blarneyrabble is saying is correct, AUR helpers tend to think the package has always a pending update to install.

This is due to a mismatch in versioning between the PKGBUILD and the .SRCINFO: pkgver for the former is 0.10.something at present time, while the latter has the titular 0.13 (which is outdated btw, LxQt has been on .14 since January). The installed package will have 0.10, but AUR helpers will normally parse .SRCINFO to decide what to do, they'll see a higher version number and reasonably conclude there's work to do.

Another way to look at the problem is that pkgver() is trying to read version tags from the git repository, but those are horrendously out of date. Even unannotated tags are stuck on 0.11. You may want to bring this up to the LxQt people.

Regardless, the versioning scheme for the package ought to be changed because it does not install tagged releases anyways. You can find more info on versioning VCS packages on the wiki.

For networking applet, why don't we depend on lxqt-connman-applet which has iwd support?

Aberts10 commented on 2018-05-24 19:32 (UTC)

Seems the volume applet is completely non-operating

KoolCharisma commented on 2017-08-25 16:37 (UTC)

I think there's a discrepancy in the package name. I'm getting constant requests to update.

0.11 isn't tagged?

nbvcxz commented on 2017-05-15 16:41 (UTC)

marked outdated as lxqt-common is required

excalibur1234 commented on 2017-05-05 11:19 (UTC)

lxqt-common got integrated into all other lxqt packages upstream: https://github.com/lxde/lxqt-common-deprecated--do-not-use-anymore- it should be removed from the list of dependencies.

jwhickman commented on 2015-12-03 03:05 (UTC)

Jerome, It appears that `libfm-qt-git` needs added to the PKGBUILD?

ozky commented on 2015-11-10 15:02 (UTC)

Why pkgbuild shows lxqt-sudo-git as requires but in that list up there is no lxqt-sudo-git at all ?.

YamashitaRen commented on 2015-10-08 17:11 (UTC) (edited on 2015-10-08 17:14 (UTC) by YamashitaRen)

*as a dependency of lxqt-openssh-askpass (the one found in community) PKGBUILD should depend on lxqt-openssh-askpass-git instead.

commented on 2015-08-25 02:28 (UTC)

At the very beginning liblxqt is installed as dependency of lxqt-desktop-git than liblxqt-git is build and conflicts with first installed liblxqt...

agaida commented on 2014-11-24 02:05 (UTC)

excalibur1234 - juffed build fine with qt5 for some months - but thanks for the tip

excalibur1234 commented on 2014-11-14 15:11 (UTC)

i recommend "notepadqq" instead of "juffed". it is qt5 and is more compatible with themes - especially dark themes.

And please don't do anything if you think the problem ıs not in your packages. If there aren't any problems, you shouldn't be fixing them, right?

commented on 2014-10-20 11:59 (UTC)

>This here is a waste of time. Reporting bugs on the metapackage is absolutely pointless. If kwindowsystem is missing as a dependency in one of the sub-packages please report it there and I will add it. This here is a waste of time. And I'm not planning on wasting any more time reporting anything. Everything is already in this thread (with failing sub-packages and error logs), if you are genuinely interested, it shouldn't be difficult to find the missing dependencies. (I see that someone has removed your comment asking us to stop reporting.)

commented on 2014-10-20 10:34 (UTC)

@jleclanche: Do you then have an explanation as to why the installation failed before installing "kwindowsystem" on a fresh Arch installation? Reporting bugs is not my favorite pastime, but most developers like to know about problems, therefore I thought you would perhaps benefit from a report. But apparently you're not interested (probably because if it works for you it should work for everyone). Noted.

ArthurBorsboom commented on 2014-10-18 21:08 (UTC)

:)

commented on 2014-10-18 14:04 (UTC)

I can confirm that after installing "kwindowsystem", all the afforementioned build errors disappeared. It needs to be added as a dependency...

AlfredoRamos commented on 2014-10-17 23:45 (UTC)

After some research, i got rid the error about "KF5WindowSystem" after installing "kwindowsystem". Now i've installed LXQT with no problem. - https://www.archlinux.org/packages/extra/x86_64/kwindowsystem/ So maybe "kwindowsystem" should be added to lxqt-desktop-git's dependencies.

commented on 2014-10-17 18:33 (UTC)

lxqt-admin-git problem is now solved. But there are other problems now: lxqt-panel-git and lxqt-runner-git fails with this error: https://pastee.org/4x5uu lxqt-policykit-git fails with this error message: https://pastee.org/xx3rs

AlfredoRamos commented on 2014-10-17 17:50 (UTC)

The issue with lxqt-admin-git has been fixed :) Thanks for such a great desktop environment.

tomasstorck commented on 2014-10-14 06:57 (UTC)

I had some difficulty upgrading to LXQt 0.8.0 today. The packages liblxqt-git-latest libqtxdg-git-latest lxqt-config-git-latest lxqt-panel-git-latest couldn't be installed/upgraded because of the following error during compilation: In file included from /tmp/pacaurtmp-tomas/lxqt-config-git/src/lxqt-config/lxqt-config-file-associations/mimetypedata.cpp:29:0: /tmp/pacaurtmp-tomas/lxqt-config-git/src/lxqt-config/lxqt-config-file-associations/mimetypedata.h:32:23: fatal error: XdgMimeType: No such file or directory #include <XdgMimeType> Problem was that libqtxdg-qt5-git (scheduled to be replaced by libqtxdg-git after compilation) was in the way. A simple pacman -Rdd libqtxdg-qt5-git fixed the issue and pulls in the latest libqtxdg-git as a dependency during the upgrade.

ljrk commented on 2014-08-19 10:11 (UTC)

Ok, aswer by Mr. Leclanche (maintainer): git.lxde.org is temp down, mirrors changed to github. Happy cloning! ;-)

ljrk commented on 2014-08-19 07:36 (UTC)

It seems to me that the website is broken. Actually substituting 'git.lxde.org/git' with 'github.com' works well. (It's like this with this package, but lxqt-about-git isnt updated, yet -it seems.)

ArthurBorsboom commented on 2014-08-19 06:36 (UTC)

Yep. Did we forgot to pay our bills?

This is a metapackage. There are no dependencies other than the relevant packages.

masterwen commented on 2014-08-08 02:19 (UTC)

you should add qt5-script and qt5-svg dependencies,otherwise lxqt-powermanagement-git and lxqt-runner cannot compile.

jleclanche commented on 2014-07-06 20:54 (UTC)

git.lxde.org is down. Use a mirror for now.

mariojuniorjp commented on 2014-07-06 19:10 (UTC)

I can not compile the package "libqtxdg-qt5-git", because the system can not download the package. What's wrong with the package?

ArthurBorsboom commented on 2014-06-28 22:53 (UTC)

Yep, that was it. Yaourt told me it was up to date, while it was not. Thx

jleclanche commented on 2014-06-28 22:50 (UTC)

You need to update liblxqt-git.

lxqt-qt5?

It helped, but then the next one popped up. I needed to install qt5-script too. Now I am stuck at lxqt-qt5 which all the other packages need. However, I can't find this one in AUR. Any suggestions?

It seems that this package conflicts with razor-qt-git from AUR.

Mr Green commented on 2014-05-12 07:54 (UTC)

Build works but package order seems to be a problem, lxqt-globalkeys-git is a dep of other packages but does not get built early enough for it to allow other packages to build. Not a major problem but just thought I would post comment. Eager to get it running ;-)

ahalverson commented on 2014-05-12 00:46 (UTC)

@FernandoBasso Well, guess it was just a problem on my side, just installed fine :D

FernandoBasso commented on 2014-05-11 11:28 (UTC)

@ahalverson, it just installed fine for me. Just that I used aurget, but that shouldn't make any difference.

"Upstream URL: http://www.lxde.org" ?!

flexiondotorg commented on 2014-05-09 15:01 (UTC)

Please update the `arch` to `any` for this package.

Viper_Scull commented on 2014-05-09 14:17 (UTC)

Installing oxygen-icons did solve the icons issue, well except for just a few programs like smplayer2 or urxvt but nothing important (I still have to find the way to tell qt (4 and 5) what icon theme it has to load on a gtk-qt mixed system, cause I configured both gtk2 and gtk3 to use Faience and Faenza as a fallback).

jleclanche commented on 2014-05-09 13:49 (UTC)

Try installing oxygen-icons-git and setting the icon theme in appearance.

Viper_Scull commented on 2014-05-09 13:48 (UTC)

It doesn't call ~/.config/openbox/autostart in my case. Neither with sddm nor with slim and .xinitrc calling startlxqt. Many icons won't show up in the menus. System tray widgets are invisible (volume, device manager), but they're there and can be controlled.

jleclanche commented on 2014-05-09 13:04 (UTC)

autologin is in /etc/sddm.conf as autouser, but be aware that it's currently broken. https://github.com/sddm/sddm/issues/93

blackhole commented on 2014-05-09 13:00 (UTC)

What about auto login? Where is the configuration file?

jleclanche commented on 2014-05-09 12:38 (UTC)

sddm is the recommended display manager. systemctl enable sddm would do it. As for the oxygen look, you can configure the qt theme with qtconfig-qt4.

blackhole commented on 2014-05-09 12:37 (UTC)

I have installed the packages on a lxde system. What is the best way to autostart lxqt? It is better to install lightdm and remove lxdm and make a "systemctl enable sddm"? I have tried that (removing lxdm...) however I cannot find a way to enable the oxygen look that I see in the official lxqt site. Some suggestions?

FernandoBasso commented on 2014-05-09 12:16 (UTC)

@jleclanche, that is okay. And by the way, thanks a lot for this package.

jleclanche commented on 2014-05-09 12:10 (UTC)

Probably not too soon, but yes eventually. I talked to the TU in charge of the LXDE packages about it.

FernandoBasso commented on 2014-05-09 12:08 (UTC)

Any likelihood that lxqt will land at the official repositories any time soon?

jleclanche commented on 2014-05-09 11:43 (UTC)

If you are having issues starting the desktop after upgrading to 0.7.0, try "rm ~/.config/lxqt/session.conf".

jleclanche commented on 2014-05-09 11:24 (UTC)

openbox is the recommended WM (it's in the optdepends in fact). Any WM would work though.

omgmog commented on 2014-05-09 11:13 (UTC)

Alright, all built fine on armv7h. Any suggestions for which WM to use?

jleclanche commented on 2014-05-09 10:10 (UTC)

Ive only got confirmation for armv6h. Please confirm it builds properly on armv7h and I'll add it.

omgmog commented on 2014-05-09 10:00 (UTC)

Can we get "armv7h" in all of the PKGBUILDs by default? Currently building for my HP Chromebook 11 and it's odd that we have "armv6h" there, but not 7.

jleclanche commented on 2014-05-08 12:33 (UTC)

The metapackage isn't versioned on github. Will do something about that when I can.

malet commented on 2014-05-08 12:33 (UTC)

Shouldn"t the version number be 0.7 by now?

nuc commented on 2014-05-07 22:45 (UTC)

Shouldn't the Upstream URL now point to the wonderful http://lxqt.org/ website? Really nicely done btw!

tekwyzrd commented on 2014-05-01 18:24 (UTC)

commented on 2014-04-29 21:05 (UTC)

I just compiled lxqt-desktop-git successfully in Raspberry Pi. Adding armv6h architecture to all PKGBUILD files was enough. So, could you add that architecture there?

ArthurBorsboom commented on 2014-04-19 12:01 (UTC)

Thanks! Problem solved.

stozi commented on 2014-04-19 10:45 (UTC)

seems that lxqt-power-git doesn't exist in repos (as billed) or in aur.

ArthurBorsboom commented on 2014-04-19 10:40 (UTC)

Recently lxinput-qt is merged into lxqt-config. Can you therefore remove the dependency lxinput-git from this package?

ArthurBorsboom commented on 2014-03-31 21:54 (UTC)

Okay, thanks. The same question for a default image viewer: lximage-qt-git ?

ArthurBorsboom commented on 2014-03-29 16:13 (UTC)

Hi Jerome, I love this idea of metapackage, so thanks for that. In my opinion the file manager is missing and correct me if I am wrong, but isn't that pcmanfm-qt-git? Or is that on purpose? If you agree that pcmanfm should be included, would you mind to add it? Cheers, Arthur.
