Maybe someone of you had heard about the fact that LXDE developers didn’t want to get dragged into the GTK+3 mess and that they decided in march of this year to merge efforts with the Razor-qt people to develop together a lightweight DE based on Qt (see the various post on the LXDE blog and on their mailing list for more informations on this).
So they picked some stuff from Razor and PCMan wrote much other from scratch: as he says, they haven’t reached a point in which this is usable in a production environment but, left away some bugs (pcmanfm-qt doesn’t seem to show icons at all here), I think it’s already looking acceptable. 🙂
So I decided to prepare build scripts and packages for Slackware 14.1 from what’s available on their git to let you try it and eventually report bugs upstream: read very well what’s written in the download folder, keep the expectations low and grab ’em while they’re still hot. 😉
