liblxqt represents the core library of LXQt providing essential functionality needed by nearly all of its components.



Its runtime dependencies are libxss, KWindowSystem, qtbase, and libqtxdg. Additional build dependencies are CMake, lxqt-build-tools and optionally Git to pull latest VCS checkouts.

Code configuration is handled by CMake. CMake variable CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX will normally have to be set to /usr, depending on the way library paths are dealt with on 64bit systems variables like CMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR may have to be set as well.

To build run make, to install make install which accepts variable DESTDIR as usual.

Binary packages
