LXQt is a lightweight QT based desktop environment, LXQt was originally a port of LXDE to QT (called LXDE-Qt), it was created due to LXDE maintainer Hong Jen Yee being dissatisfied with GTK 3, on 21 July 2013 the LXDE(-Qt) and Razor-qt projects merged creating LXQt.


Note: LXQt on Alpine currently requires having the /edge/testing repo enabled

Note: By default LXQt usually uses Openbox as its window manager, but LXQt supports many different window managers, See: ConfigWindowManagers - LXQt Github wiki
