The LXQt project is steadily developed. While the image viewer lximage-qt just got some polishing lately, the Qt port of PCManFM file manager also reaches a quite usable state.
Some notable changes are:
- Add dir tree to the side pane
- Improved file popup menu
- Able to open the selected files with arbitrary apps
- Improved handling when trying to open an executable file.
- Improved statusbar info
- Many bug fixes
Though we don’t have a stable release yet, basically the feature set of the Qt port is quite close to the earlier 1.0 version of the gtk+ version. Users interested to the project are encouraged to test the latest code in our git repo. Patches are always welcomed! 🙂
Here is a guide for building lxqt components from git.
