LXQt is a lightweight Desktop environment. Some LXDE developers decided to create a Qt based version of their Desktop environment, it's name was lxde-qt. Around the same time some other people were working on a different minimal Qt based DE called razor-qt. When some developers of those projects met they decided to join forces and work together on one project. LXQt was born.
It is recommended to set the LXQt mix-in before emerging it.
# eselect profile add funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/lxqt # emerge lxqt-meta
You can either use a display manager to log into your system and start LXQt, or you can log in on a TTY and run
startx to start xinit by hand.
You should edit the file
~/.xinitrc if it already exists, and put
"exec startlxqt" in there.
If it doesn't exist you can create it like this:
$ echo "exec startlxqt" > ~/.xinitrcYou might want to add the commands and options
ck-launch-session dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-sessionto the
execto start it with ConsoleKit and DBus. In this case you also need to add ConsoleKit to the default runlevel:
# rc-update add consolekit default # rc
