LXQt 0.17 Released For This Lightweight Qt5 Desktop

  • LXQt 0.17 Released For This Lightweight Qt5 Desktop

    For fans of LXQt or those still looking for a nice lightweight Qt5 desktop, LXQt 0.17 is out as the latest version of this open-source desktop environment.

    LXQt 0.17 is the first update to this desktop environment for 2021. LXQt is the lightweight Qt desktop born out of the merger of the LXDE and Razor-qt projects.

    Over last November's LXQt 0.16 release, version 0.17 brings a number of improvements but nothing too shocking or original with many of the features being found already on other Linux desktops. Among the LXQt 0.17 highlights are...

LXQt 0.17.0 Released With Several Important Improvements

  • LXQt 0.17.0 Released With Several Important Improvements

    LXQt 0.17 is the first update to this lightweight Qt5 desktop environment for 2021. It is focused on being a classic desktop with a modern look and feel.

    LXQt is a very light and simple desktop environment built using the Qt libraries. It was formed by the merger of the LXDE and Razor-qt project. Currently, almost all major Linux distributions provides LXQt options as it is very lightweight with features loaded.

    The LXQt desktop provides its own list of components specifically designed using Qt frameworks which gives you a stable yet super fast desktop experience.

LXQt Desktop 0.17 Is Released

  • LXQt Desktop 0.17 Is Released

    LXQt is a pretty bare-bones and light-weight desktop environment with a traditional desktop with icons on it, a simple panel, or panels, a power manager, a file manager, (pcmanfm-qt) and a terminal qterminal. The window manager it uses is openbox, a window manager developed completely independent on the LXQt project. The openbox settings manager has been removed from the LXQt session in this release to make it easier to use LXQt with other window managers.

    The latest LXQt 0.17 release has several mostly tiny improvements. Session management has been improved to include the most basic feature session management should have: Desktop applications are now notified when LXQt quits. This gives them a chance to exit cleanly instead of being abruptly terminated when the X server terminates.

    The PCManFM-Qt file manager that comes with LXQt has gained support for file creation times and a "Admin mode" in the tools menu that lets you transfer files between root and your regular user without the need to actually be root. This feature is, sadly, currently broken due to a problem in the underlying GNOME Virtual file system (GVFS) framework it depends on. It will work if that bug gets fixed.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
