LXQt-Admin: System admin tools for LXQt arrived

It’s known that system admin tools for LXQt were lacking.
This is no longer true.  A new component lxqt-admin landed int our git repo. Please see the screenshots. 🙂 These are “desktop-independent” pure Qt tools based on system-tool-backends.

lxqt-admin-time: Tool to configure date and time.

lxqt-admin-user: Tool to manage users and groups.

We know that LXQt is not good enough, but it will getting better and better. Long live LXQt, the classic desktop!

Incoming upgrades


The QT version of OBConf is ready. PCMan has ported using the QT libraries to match the LXDE-QT or the upcoming Razor-QT desktops. There’re a few things that do not work, such as font settings, dock settings, theme previews, etc. Anyway this app is almost fully functional.

Gnumeric 1.12.6

One of the office components has been updated too. This version improves the support for Open Document formats and Microsoft Excel. Lubuntu includes now 1.12.4 and it’s supposed that this update will be ready in a few days and our systems will be upgraded.

RazorQT theme

Yesterday I read this interesting article on the LXDE blog. For those who don’t know yet, RazorQT and LXDE are joining forces, to make a extremely fast, beautiful and brand new desktop. And here we are, Lubuntu, with a promising RazorQT session available.

Until this arrives (the complete and finished RazorQT environment) you can install it via the official PPA and use this ready-made theme to match your Lubuntu Raring Ringtail desktop. Download it while it’s hot!
