Sparky LXQt prev
« on: December 17, 2014, 11:14:59 pm »
It's something for Qt fans.
I've been playing with LXQt for a while.
It's not so fast as LXDE yet, but I am satisfied :)

My tests with LXQt say that the new environment consumes 20-30 MB more that LXDE.
I think it not so bad, and the dev iso should be ready soon.

It will get better optimized, remember they are only at 0.8 beta... ;). I think there goal is for it to be only a little bit more resource intensive then Razor/Lxde.

I do know that Trinity DE is the fork of KDE3 and also read that LXDE is more RAM resource friendly.

But Trinity DE in q4OS consumes 70 MB RAM and Sparkylinux LXDE consumes 130 MB RAM and Robolinux lxde 32 said to use only 66 MB RAM but four times ROBOlinux iso failed to work.

q4os was awesome for internet usage but for daily use, no it sucks.

Sparkylinux is still the best.

I also know Debian doesn't have Trinity DE and few Debian Stable distros use it.

Unfortunately Trinity DE doesn't work for Debian Testing.

Im confident that once lxqt hits 1.0 the gap will be smaller.

I'm resuming my work on providing an EFI32 bootable ISO image for SparkyLinux. This here is the 4.0RC LXQt Live ISO booted from a pendrive with EFI32 firmware. As soon as I stabilize the EFI image for the EFI32 architecture, it's going to be implemented in sparky-backup-sys.

The ISO is running on a ASUS Transformer T100TA. The state for this little piece of hardware is as follows:
  • the system boots without any kernel command line parameter quirks with the default 3.16 kernel from the ISO
  • Xorg launches
  • touchscreen works
  • wifi is still not functional without additional firmware files
  • sound is not functional (don't remember that one, but probably also missing some firmware files)
  • backlight control doesn't work (remains at 100%, so battery drain is quite high)
  • the whole party ends with a spectacular kernel panic once you try to shut down or reboot ;)

Getting the T100TA is another priority of mine, but it's second to the general SparkyLinux-based tasks.

There isn't a single thing that's impossible. Just the things that we don't yet know how to deal with. ;)
