is there a chance debian 10 will include LXQT rather than LXDE?


maybe a very stupid question due to architecture as such: but does anyone know if debian 10 will move lxde to lxqt? i am mpst happy with lxde. but i have read a lot of things stating that lxqt is the more current way to go. maybe it is not possible but i have to ask. i did have contact with one of the developers over the last year but i no longer have hi address.

I have debian stretch and I can install lxqt. It is available (but probably not the default).

I recently tried Lubuntu 19.04 and was surprised to see that it now uses LXQt.
I immediately hated it.
It does not perform well in a virtual machine.

LXQt is great if you use it as a lightweight KDE. If you only notice, focus on, how it has changed since LXDE days then you probably will not like it.

It is lightweight, can use any WM, and is supported and progressing. They made the jump to Qt4 then Qt5 while others are still struggling with the jump to GTK3, so that's a bonus, perhaps.

If you use the net installer then its a simple apt install lxqt.
https://wiki.debian.org/LXQt

Here is a decent guide for a minimal LXQt with Kwin: https://www.pcsuggest.com/lxqt-with-...eme-in-debian/

The *buntu's are a bad choice if you are wanting to try a DE since its not really the DE anymore, but a *buntu version of that DE.

ok running stretch now and will keep it as such but wondering when 10 buster stable comes out if and when i upgrade. wondering if that was the normal procession of lxde to lxqt. as i said i am most happy with lxde - i am surprised. also it would be a dvd install and not netinstall. thank you too!

My understanding is, as long as GTK2 is supported then LXDE will be as well, there is a maintainer for it just not PCMan anymore, his focus is on LXQt.

ok just an addendum. just looked on the debian website under non-free live cd/dvd iso and buster has lxde and lxqt so looks like at this stage either is possible.
