Sorry for that, but plain truth. An option is added to Task Manager for moving windows to next/previous virtual desktop with mouse wheel. @tsujan What I mean by "pcmanfm-qt is extremely unstable" is in the context of this triple 4k monitor setup. It could be useful to discard other problems. It'll be a shame if we couldn't have a wayland-based Compiz. I used to be, or technically still am, an MCSE, certified for windows NT/2K/XP/2003 + DBA and training, but that was long ago and I got tired of MS's rat race with too many changes for no good reason. < rant >Cool - but thats KDE/Qt - they have a long term relation with ubuntu. So maybe we could have a little man page or complement lxqt-config-monitor with the usual switch --help briefly explaining the basic modes of operation? On the second screen there's small left vertical bar which is a copy of right part of background of first desktop. I'm going to write however I see fit (not my native language either, by the way) and if it's too much for your big engineering brains then you free to ignore it, lock the thread or ban me because, clearly, this is going nowhere. It has a QCheckBox (added in .ui) to decide the actual behavior (it's literally the same code in an else) or individual for each monitor. I've always liked Compiz vey much because it's both practical and beautiful. @tsujan ooo QScreen is much easier than KScreen, I think I can do that. But to be blunt about: It also hates QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland-egl and wants xcb but Qt apps may have visual glitches on menus without that variable. I asked those questions to know if pcmanfm-qt had any problem other than the one discussed here because you mentioned instability. In LXQt 0.15.0, QTerminal has a more compact and scrollable settings dialog, supports fixed custom sizes, allows switching to tabs by index, supports borderless state, and supports sending of command-line history to a text editor. The problem may be in fusion-icon. app indicators) in Plasma, and we hope that has enough momentum for other projects to follow. If you're lucky and they happen to have rather few flather some time they may allow for having a first look at LXQt, whether or not one may like it or so. Az LXDE és a Razor-qt projektek összeolvadásával jött létre. On X compositor is unnecessary but with Wayland it's mandatory, is it not ? File sorting is made more natural by treating dot as separator (like what GTK does — other aspects of file sorting aren’t changed because Qt does them best). So, shouldn't pcmanfm-qt adapt for it in the long run ? Does LXQt even has native Wayland session support ? local/liblxqt 0.10.0-6 lxqt-config multi-monitor regression upstream. We use optional third-party analytics cookies to understand how you use GitHub.com so we can build better products. Caching and adding preferences could be done later. Create a "canvas" of the size of the combine screens and put the wallpapers you want on it and then use it as wallpaper. Normally it should mimic nitrogen and: It also would be useful to mimic old "desktop cube" feature with separate wallpapers for each virtual screen. ➜ ~ pacman -Qs lxqt 0.10. Comments. Anyway, you may be better off reimplementing what nitrogen did or patching it and replacing pcmanfm-qt's "desktop" mode with it altogether. But I haven't tried to do it because it requires lots of changes to the current code and the final result isn't interesting to me -- in short, I'm not motivated to start testing the idea ;). Maybe that 2048 pixel segmenting will help troubleshooters reach a solution. sudo apt … Could you please be more specific about this part? Happy testing. Is very simple: without cache, only stretched and without expanded wallpaper. One of the differences between LXQt and other DE's is that it's highly modular. Although it seems that KDE in its newest iteration of degradation (4->5) has removed that option but there is some "movement". Millions of developers and companies build, ship, and maintain their software on GitHub — the largest and most advanced development platform in the world. Hello there, which task manager/System Monitor would you recommend for usage in LXQt? bah, github dont like my rant or sarcasm tags - bad bad github ... @agaida I've got tired of denials. Keep up the good work. LXQt Power Management. Please try it! [please see my avatar] I think we must be getting Punk'd. local/lxqt-common 0.10.0-3 (lxqt) Learn more, Wallpaper settings should treat multiple screens correctly. Have a question about this project? Maybe that's because they want to draw while compiz halts almost all rendering on the screen and/or the startup of the panel. they're used to log you in. You signed in with another tab or window. if I set compiz (compiz-manager or fusion-icon that able to reliably launch it) as window_manager in lxqt/session.conf then LXQt tray is garbled up and half of it becomes unclickable. I finished it w/o cache but I really haven't seen the necessity for it. :-) After getting tired being frustrated by Apple, and then later Microsoft systems, (too expensive, restrictive and "black boxy') I resolved to make linux my new computing home and it has taken a few years to get comfortable but I'm glad I made the transition. LXQt privilege program (lxsu). It seems kwin's bug is only on setting changes (compositing reinitialization), so I have to use that but then wallpaper-per-cube-side glory is lost. they're used to gather information about the pages you visit and how many clicks you need to accomplish a task. they're used to log you in. local/lximage-qt 0.4.0-1 (lxqt) Milestone. local/lxqt-notificationd 0.10.0-3 (lxqt) It has been replaced by lxqt-config-monitor. :-). Maybe we provide a compile time option to turn this on and leave it off by default? If we forget about viewports or virtual desktops and, instead, focus on screens, theoretically, it's possible to give different wallpapers to different screens only by using QScreen (which is already used by pcmanfm-qt for managing multiple screens). Multi-screen wallpaper support. LXQt components (in which I include pcmanfm-qt, although it should remain DE-agnostic for modularity) should not depend on a single WM. Especially, when it requires running /usr/lib64/libexec/kf5/kscreen_backend_launcher at login (I'm not sure how you all are using lxqt-config-monitor without it) to work. (need to upgrade CPU/Mobo/RAM combination some day, but that ASUS core continues to be rock solid and its hard to chuck reliable machines that are paid for. @hmollercl Yeah. And even if it is right now. Better keyboard navigation. The kwin 5 is available in two backend, Xorg based kwin_x11 and latest wayland based kwin_wayland, the X11 based kwin is more matured and has lesser dependency. Copy link Quote reply dobo90 commented Apr 20, 2016. Hope it helps. Beispiele: Browser: Firefox. Manjaro supports multiple installed Kernels at the same time. It also has a new setting entry to save that preference. local/pcmanfm-qt 0.10.0-3 (lxqt) I have two questions: (1) What if you stop it from Configuration Center → Session Settings and use pcmanfm-qt without its desktop module, i.e. c) i use only one little screen - so i would really appreciate this feature (ok, i should better run). thank you in advance. But after having another look I realized that probably neither lxqt-config-monitor nor KScreen are involved: level 1. LXQt about dialog. Choosing a widget style for Qt apps. In any of these cases, Xrandr, the Xorg’s own utility for monitor management is your best friend, and it’s not too hard to use. I think my point is clearer now: pcmanfm-qt can't cover this diversity. Close. I've made a script to workaround this issue. But documentation doesn't seem to exist. Sometimes I also use LXQt minus its panel and desktop under Enlightenment just for fun. In the LXQt desktop, the theme that programs use (Widget Style theme) and the panel them are not the same. @PCMan That commit seems to have broken tiling on Arch Linux. I think my point is clearer now: pcmanfm-qt can't cover this diversity. Most Qt devs are very active and attend to bugs quickly. But, on high DPI monitors, the frame would be too small, resulti… @v-fox kscreen has wayland suport. There is nothing we can do here. And it actually provides exactly that wallpaper functionality really well ! Although, I'm not sure that using pcmanfm-qt for wallpapers is a good idea in the first place. KWin's logout crashes are fixed and it can be used with LXQt without problem now. Another manifestation of the problem is that the wallpaper gets displayed as expected on the second monitor while there's no wallpaper at all on the first monitor which is just black instead. There might be some problems in scaling more than one external monitors which have lower dpi than the built-in HiDPI display. The patch works with a single 1920x1080 monitor. But this situation has slightly changed to the better. Right now multiple screens are treated as single giant one so wallpaper is disgustingly stretched on them. LXQt openssh password prompt But at least: i - for myself - hate it if i had to read long tetxts without any reasons in not may mothers tongue. KDE has excuse of their their codebase actually being insanely overcomplicated and being constantly rewritten Poettering-style, without ever achieving feature-parity with "bad", old versions, let alone, its new goals. But even they don't deny outside attempts in improvement on some misguided principle. @hmollercl How running KDE-specific binaries could be more "agnostic" than actual generic system-side "interface" (rhetorical question: how is it there still no X's dbus interface for querying device info ?) Set kwin_x11 as window manager in LXQt Session Settings, read more about Kwin with LXQt. LXQt Configuration. ... but also will willingly deny any completed and correct code from anyone else, @tsujan - you are a really bad guy - and this should be my role here :D, And to all the others: Please, don't complain to loud and with to much words. Yeah, things not being completely broken is much more than just "a good addition to the code". @foxpup LXQt ist eine freie Desktop-Umgebung für Unix und andere POSIX-konforme Plattformen, wie Linux oder BSD. While it isn’t a desktop environment we’ve given much attention to over the past few years, the improvements on offer in its latest update are well worth a shout out. hmollercl/pcmanfm-qt@a7f5f7c, The only thing about is: It will cause more work for us. @v-fox you can create your own wallpaper stitching the images you want, the same way we do it for the per screen. @pmattern LXQt 0.11.0 will migrate to debian/testing in 3 days, right now it is only in sid. Because I had make: To test out Wayland which, surprisingly, worked but I abandoned anyway because of kwin's shortcomings like the lack of colour correction via native display profiles which they can't figure out since 2013. As of 1.18 they are set up in extended view mode, though. While you are at it : A video wallpaper would be great - with sound of course - second step would be using the sound of a certain attached screen. It consists of many small individual components like a panel program, session manager, hotkey daemon and a few more. @agaida Only a VERY concise and clean patch might be acceptable, and it's simply impossible for that job. Copy link Quote reply Member jleclanche commented Feb 16, 2015. Yes, very good for PCman's fix. As I wrote before, when completing support of Wayland, LXQt will have to aim for some compositor. kwin is still buggy here (leaves coredumps on log-out and...). Let's keep it so! If one has somethings to write - write patches, make the code and the functionality better, we will praise you for doing so. only searched for packages which provide x-window-manager in debian. In short: visual differentiation of dedicated workspaces. portrait/landscape works ok according to exif. local/lxqt-config 0.10.0-5 (lxqt) Forgive me for not mentioning that I'm not a newbie in the OP. For what its worth, I thought I'd mention that the 'weirdness' happens even when the image size matches the screen size on multiple monitors if the image is big enough. b) it would be really cool - i know we have other things to solve first Openbox has multiple virtual desktops, each with one viewport. Beware the PPAs as described here! Drag and drop of screens is improved and made easier in Monitor Settings. I would prefer that being a separate application like nitrogen, panel's "widget" like in Plasma (as much as I hate it) or part of WM as in Compiz. I guess kwin developers figuring that out is the best option for me... as long as it's not part of actual Plasma widgets, "activities" or other weird figment of their imagination. So when you attach another monitor with your laptop for presentation or extended display, nothing will happen. https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-54384, wallpaper not fit into a 4k panel (non-hdpi), Desktop: Stretch to fit doesn't work -- it tiles the image, stretching wallpaper larger than 1920px don't work, Fixes tiling of wallpapers after https://github.com/lxde/pcmanfm-qt/c…. LXQt lacks any window-manager of it's own though there is a LXQt configuration tool for Openbox. was not planned so. Just "not broken out-of-the-box but is broken with default setting". But don't write so damn long comments on bugs. Especially now when we know that this is NOT a one-time decision but a consequence of general attitude for the whole project. @jleclanche lxqt/pcmanfm-qt#446 should fix it. But check out compiz' wallpaper + screensaver plugins with rotating cube and hovering windows. Es sei nochmal darauf hingewiesen, dass Qt und Programme auf Qt-Basis keine Abhängigkeiten zu KDE besitzen, aber speziell das Büropaket Calligra nicht ohne KDE-Bibliotheken auskommt. I don't have access to a 4k monitor to try workarounds either. We talk about code. Projects. This Compiz also works fine here (I'm using it now): https://github.com/compiz-reloaded. Multiple external monitors. So, it would depend on how LXQt is going to handle Wayland. Detecting virtual desktops and viewports is quite easy but adds an X11 dependency, which I don't think anyone approves of. However, patches -- by motivated developers -- are welcome. But I didn't mean that the latest version would fix this special issue. A new plugin is added for changing display … It seems that Xinerama is completely abandoned on X11, it's only xrandr now. LXQt power management daemon I often find myself trying launch new ones or kill the running one (as root) in system monitor so I can relaunch it and hopefully get back icons on the desktop, pcmanfm-qt windows and file access for programs. - lxqt-config-randr has been removed. But then again, when did they for the last 5-8 years ? It's a reasonable start (that needs tests: portrait+landscape, overlapping screens,...). Not the first time they can't reproduce bugs that so many users see -- I know that some Qt devs use Ubuntu+Unity (and not even Kubuntu) for testing -- but closing this one after such a long time was a strange reaction. High DPI displays bring about some challenges for existing applications: 1. In Lubuntu, multi monitor display settings are not enabled by default. I won't allow cluttering a code that's written, debugged, cleaned and improved by dedicating so much time and energy to it. However, a few devs (I know of 2) can almost never reproduce critical bugs and I think that's mostly because they use Unity or gnome-shell. So if one comes up with some ideas or even better with ideas and a basic implementation - why not. BTW, since my last comment above, KWin has become very stable. Launching it in Wayland and configure your multiple monitors in lxqt-config-monitor ? If you don't care too much about clean uninstall you may follow our instructions to build from the sources. For example, it works with kwin, Openbox and Compiz alike. For more information, see our Privacy Statement. Unlike LXQt, you will find a lot of major Linux distributions support XFCE editions. LXQt platform integration for Qt Not sure if this causes other side effects or conflicts with some style engines, though. An option is added for changing the display backlight when the computer is idle. After recent upgrades on Arch Linux I've found that desktop background is wrongly rendered on dual monitor setups. Highly configurable and lightweight X11 window manager Learn more. #1027. The scripts work reliably among other on Ubuntu. I won't be able to try it any time soon though :/, I won't be able to try it any time soon though. (Regarding the black screen I failed to figure out how exactly to reproduce so far.). LXQt is available in the main repository of Ubuntu 16.04 and above, no need to install LXQt from any PPA. That's really good news! That's how the ultimate wallpapering goal looks like ! (not as impressive as it sounds, they are only 30hz) The dimensions are 11520x2160. Unity and Qt?! but beware that "General -> Desktop size -> Number of desktops" should be '1'. I can't help you with your script but you didn't say with which kind of virtual desktops it works; openbox, kwin, compiz-reloaded,...? Anyway, this thread is about pcmanfm-qt. I could add some links here but it wouldn't be of any help. Then we can remain Wayland friendly while resolving more immediate needs? QTerminal / QTermWidget. Sometimes the situation gets so bad that I have to restart and sometimes forcefully. Have a question about this project? so this means having one kind of wallpaper on all the screen but using the correct size their, fitting the same kind of wallpaper to each screen exactly and not stretching over multiple screens? Upstream bug report https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-54384 was closed today because they are unable to reproduce. ), fractal generators or 3D scenes per screen here. Thanks for the script but it would be easier to just run Plasma, or anything else, with nitrogen where it works. Just switched from Pop 19.10 to Ubuntu 20.04 and multiple monitors doesn't work. Panel positioning is corrected with multiple screens. You signed in with another tab or window. Or maybe being a Qt developer has become too easy nowadays? local/lxqt-about 0.10.0-4 (lxqt) One of the differences between LXQt and other DE's is that it's highly modular. TLDR: I've been working all night on moving lxqt-config-monitor to the KScreen framework. If we use a 12pt font, it would look correct on low resolution monitors. The LXQt file manager, Qt port of PCManFM. It's OK. I've tested it in several conditions and it work ok. How should I proceed? We use optional third-party analytics cookies to understand how you use GitHub.com so we can build better products. For example, it works with kwin, Openbox and Compiz alike. Several options are added to LXQt file dialog. I will take a look at it when I touch the cache, that would need new definitions and code.
