Have you tried running LXQt with Wayland? If so, how is it?

Yes - remember openbox is a window manager for X11 - if you use kwin instead of openbox it works great with Wayland

It is like Plasma on Wayland


Oh-My-Fish has some great themes available and it’s easy enough to change colors, etc. in the config files for those.

It is hard to believe that not being able to change themes in fish has anything to do with LXqt.


the new lxqt version is now available in the arch repos :heart_eyes:


I have updated already :wink:


can’t imagine it either but there must be a problem somewhere. I will find out yet.

with fish_config i was able to change the prompt in the web interface. but as soon as i install a theme from the framework fish does not apply the change

I will have to deal with this again in time

i have no idea if it was really lxqt, lxqt-terminal or what. with a new arch-xfce installation i can now also select themes and prompt via the framework

I always really want to like lxqt more. It’s so close to being incredible.

To be honest, if I could have figure out how to change the shortcuts in bismuth on lxqt+kwin a while back, I probably would have been there longer.

lxqt is certainly interesting. however, it did not fit my needs.

my very old dell laptop which is certainly 15 years old and I are now really very comfortable with arch-xfce.
