ExTiX 15.3 LXQt DVD 64 bit is based on Debian 8.1 Jessie/Ubuntu 15.04. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity (Ubuntu). After removing Unity I have installed LXQt 0.9.0.

# It seems to work, but who knows. May have some terrible flaw and ruin your life. Your entire life.
# "${0##*/}" is the script name ("$0") stripped of any parameters ("##*/"), by the way.

if ls /dev/shm/${0##*/}-ticket* 2> /dev/null ; then
	while [[ -e "/dev/shm/${0##*/}-ticket$n" ]]; do
