LXQt on FreeBSD

LXQt is the Qt port of LXDE, the Lightweight Desktop Environment. It is the product of the merge between the LXDE-Qt and the Razor-qt projects.


Install the LXQt (0.13.0) desktop

l10n packages with translations are not available at the moment, as they will be integrated into each component in a 0.14 release announced to be released by upstream 2019-01-25

A meta port x11-wm/lxqt is planned for 0.13.

(Not all dependencies of each listed port are listed below, but the list should get you a working LXQt desktop)

List of ports from head r491111

Known issues (and fixes)

It's advised to use UTF-8 as character encoding, especially for Western Europeans users (some translation are not well displayed in settings widgets).


PCManFM-qt is able to use UDisks2 service (for removable storages), install sysutils/bsdisks.

Starting the desktop

Using .xinitrc

% echo 'ck-launch-session /usr/local/bin/startlxqt' > ~/.xinitrc
