Salutations... :good:

I have not tried it. This is because of the performance issue. XFCE uses Gtk. My use of LXQT is only as a pathway to EDE.

Can you find a halfway decent looking screenshot of EDE? Something that doesn't look reminiscent of 1995? I know the bells and whistles don't really bother you but I was just wondering if anyone has gotten it to look ok.

Second question. What would a user do in the case of wanting a third party application (bleachbit for example)? Most recent GUI apps require gtk/Qt. Isn't the choice of application severely limited by removing gtk and Qt?
How do i become super user?

The short answer is no. However... now that I put Firmware: BADUSB behind me (it cost $1000 USD... :cry: )
I guess I will have time to reach out to the EDE guys to get them to consider NTK ( FLTK + Cairo) instead of FLTK

(see... http://non.tuxfamily.org/e-517eedad832f11.95473617.png )

or... just throw EDE under the bus and create a https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xlib/ XCB ... DirectFB ... Fox toolkit ... Desktop metaphor using PekWM ... Xfe ... Qingy and Bar (by Lemonboy) for starters.

The short answer is correct. However... the choice of a lightweight toolkit interface (or lack thereof in the case of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xlib/ XCB )
should be primarily limited to the Desktop metaphor instead of applications because of that.

I do not have XFCE performance issues (I don't use it)... I'm saying ALL things Gtk/Qt have performance issues (such as... Code bloat ).

@ brokenman...
Yep... Non is the real deal. It's not Gtk/Qt bloated like Rosegarden.

And it's part of the Slackware pantheon... thanks to our friends @ Studioware.

@ Evan...
The last EDE commit was in December...
(see... https://sourceforge.net/p/ede/code/3601/ )

The package is in the USM...
(see... http://slakfinder.org/show.php?pkg=630360 )

Pls Note: Last Friday I did an IPS build which uses LXQT/ PekWM .
Sometime this week... I should have a EDE / PekWM version.

However... ultimately I will make a pure PekWM ... Xfe ... Qingy... and Bar (by Lemonboy) Desktop environment ...

EDE has to be configured to deprecate LXQT in 003-lxqt.xzm... it's not a drop-in module package.
