Light qt destkop, ex antico , razor-qt

 sudo add-apt-repository ppa:razor-qt ; sudo apt-get update ;  sudo apt-get install razor-qt openbox  xserver-xephyr  

this xserver-xephyr is installed only to test it only inside the kde session.

 Xephyr :1 -screen 640x480 & sleep 3 && export DISPLAY=:1 && razor-session 

here there is a softwar compilation suggested from razor-qt dev


considering to build a light destkop wrapped on ubuntu kernel i guess you could try TO OWN RISK

 sudo add-apt-repository ppa:razor-qt ; sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get install razor-qt openbox ubuntu-minimal chromium-browser  lightdm 

LIKE File manager i have tested this

  1. I was looking for “Antico” DE (found it also here) but its page seemed to have disappeared. So is this taking back from where Antico left? Is it functional and reliable (meaning: not “very” buggy)? I have a couple of old pieces of junk around I’d like to revive, but the full KDE4 is too heavy. Also Trinity (the old KDE3 DE taken back to life) seems too much and also quite unreliable (occasional crashes).

    antico is gone , the developer is switched to apple ๐Ÿ˜€ money,

    you can test it without problem with a nested session (razon into kde session ) you need to install openbox because with kwin it’s too heavy

  3. Apple… one more annoyance coming from them! It’s the source of all evil… ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Back to Razor, would it be possible (or better) to go for a minimal install + openbox + razor? Are there any other package required? (I am trying right now, so advice is appreciated) ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks

  4. Sooooo nice! ๐Ÿ˜€ qtfm looks good. Yes, of course the system will make sense with some sw installed, but I meant other basic components, like X (that is managed by xephyr, to my understanding).
    Maybe the base system will only need KDM for graphical login, unless you have a clever trick to automatically start graphical session without a login manager. I found some hacks to tty conf files and “light” login managers to accomplish this but never tested…
    I will let you know, Vbox install is running…

    well you can try kdm ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I will. Thanks for your help.

  7. Either you and the author are the same person, or they took inspiration from your article… ๐Ÿ˜‰

      well , on kde planet there was a post i guess everyone that read kde planet has written a post ๐Ÿ™‚ … then my blog license is fdl so every one can copy and paste , i don’t care ๐Ÿ˜€ this blog is for my own use and fun

  8. Being quoted or “copied” is nice, as long as you’re permitting it, but I have seen too often blogs and sites (even well known ones) that just take other people’s work and carry no link to the source. This is not fair, and it’s just “stealing”! I particularly take care about attribution, if ever anyone should use some of the bulls**t I wrote, since I always try to write on my own resources.
    And also my blog is mainly for “storage” of thoughts and personal interests. I am always happy if someone reads and appreciates it, anyway! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Not knowing about KDE planet (that I’ll follow from now on), the coincidence seemed a bit strange ๐Ÿ˜‰
    By the way, my small “project” with Antico on a minimal Ubuntu is going on… Who knows how it will end:?:
