I tried to install Debian Stretch (9.4.0) together with desktop environment LXQt.
Hereby I installed a raw and clean system without any additional packages first and then set the recommended and suggested packages to
0 via file
Afterwards I installed the following (basic) packages via CLI:
After reboot into the fresh system first problem detected was the fact that my screen freezed during input of log-in data into
lightdm. Hereby neither keyboard nor mouse pointer showed any reaction. This problem could be solved by installing the additional package
xserver-xorg-input-libinput. Now log-in does not freeze anymore and will succeed.
Second problem was the issue that most of the graphical desktop environment icons are not getting displayed. Therefore I installed the package
lxqt-qtplugin, but I could only reach the whole amount of icons when installing the additional icon theme package
lxde-icon-theme. This by default integrated icon-theme
adwaita-qt5seems to have some problems I guess?
Third problem is the issue that common users (except root) do not have permissions to log-out, reboot, shutdown etc. the system. As a normal user clicking on the related buttons in the start menue does not have any effect. I am not yet sure how to fix this issue?
Did anyone of you experience similar issues? This did not appear on only one machine, the exactly same things happened when installing this combination into a VM. Maybe LXQt is more in a late beta state than fully reliable at present?
