  • Benchmark: Memory Usage: LXQt desktop environment vs XFCE

    It has always been rumored that Qt is bloated so programs written in Qt should be bloated. Some even argued that the LXDE developers made a wrong decision on the migration to LXQt. Why not replace the assumptions with some experiments? In fact, LXQt 0.11 even uses slightly less memory than XFCE (with gtk+ 2). After […]

  • Qt5 port of Pulse Audio Volume Control (pavucontrol)

    There has long been needs for a simple Qt frontend for pulseaudio-based audio mixer. So I ported the gtk+ version pavucontrol program to Qt5 for use in LXQt.

    Since the release of LXQt 0.9 several days ago, many people are curious about its memory usage since in the release announcement we mentioned the use of two libraries from KDE framework 5.

  • In memory of Razor-qt

    Although people often compare LXDE and the “so-called” Qt port, LXQt with each other, they are actually from different code bases. The most parts of LXQt are actually built on top of razor-qt, a lightweight Qt-based DE with the same philosophy as LXDE. We reorganized the source code of razor-qt and removed unused pieces. Then we […]

  • Status update for “LXDE”

    Yes, it’s about the gtk+ version LXDE, not LXQt. Previously, razor-qt and lxde project merged and formed LXQt project, which just had a 0.8 release. Though the original plan was to migrate to Qt, this does not mean that LXDE is dropped. As many of the users have noted, many LXDE gtk+ components got updates […]
