Does thinlinc suport the LXQT windows manager?

The only meaningful hit in Google I could find on this subject is a Ticket back in 2020 with a task to include a profile for LXQT, and the ticket’s still open.

Hello,

I think lxqt should work fine. The ticket is about having a lxqt profile listed in the Profile selection dialog when a user has logged in.

I verified with installing lxqt on Ubuntu Focal fossa (20.04) with

apt install lxqt

then I appended to /opt/thinlinc/etc/conf.d/profiles.hconf:

[/profiles/lxqt]
xdg_session=LXQT lxqt
name=LXQT Desktop
name[de]=LXQT Desktop
name[es]=Escritorio LXQT
name[it]=Desktop LXQT
name[fr]=Bureau LXQT
name[nl]=LXQT Desktop
name[pt_BR]=Desktop LXQT
name[ru]=Рабочий стол LXQT
name[sv]=LXQT-skrivbord
name[tr]=LXQT Masaüstü

Please note that the description text above is not correct, it’s the from lxde.

also added lxqt to the order= at the top of profiles.hconf, like so:

order=lxqt unity ubuntu gnome gnome-classic kde xfce cinnamon mate lxde

LXQT in Profile Chooser

LXQT Desktop running

Hi Martin,

Thanks a lot for the detailed reply. I’m going to try it 'cause I really hate Ubuntu’s
default Gnome desktop :smiley:

I followed your steps and I verified I can login to the server with LXQT. :grinning:

I had to use the client installed in the server machine and connect via localhost because I’m having the Connection to server 192.168.0.1 timed out error message when connecting to the server from other machines, but I guess I’ll leave that for other Topic question.

Glad to hear that you’re able to use LXQT aswell!

Yeah, go ahead and create new topic for new issue, sounds good :slight_smile:

Martin
