Razor-QT needs a full time window manager. That's the major error.
...And somebody needs to compile an .sfs or pet together with a preinstalled window manager and Razor-QT preconfigured.

I thing Eggwm would be the logical choice because it's qt and very light.
Openbox is used on many puppies but you can't just boot it up from terminal, there actually has to be an actual session change.

...Otherwise errors will keep happening.

Subject description: de vs wm
 

Some wms bring their own 'desktop environment' (afterstep, ede, enlightenment and xfce4 among others), a rox pinboard may or may not be the best solution for a bg/d'n'd (I do roxpin on-demand as it may interfere with a 'normal' startup in some cases, but that's just my pref).

Yah, if it's to be used it seems sensible to start it as Eyes-Only does (good wampum but I'd probably try for something in ~/Startup if possible, especially when there may be conflict with some wms Neutral )

Early days .. in any case, great that work has been (is being) done. 10Q Smile

Razor-qt is a desktop only, it has no windowmanager components, therefore needs to 'sit on a windowmanager'. I intend to use qlwm as it's also qt, small footprint and basic, although eggwm should also work even as it's both windowmanager and desktop a few settings may need to be added to get the right modules to start.

Pemasu built a razor-qt for me as I was having too many problems and needed something puppy'd to compare with to work out where the problem was coming from, it was released as an 'as-is' build only. In the end I found the problem was in the 'wary base' and therefore why I have built a mageia 2 puppy.

regards

Technewz, it's not that easy, so I will ask a few basic questions.

?why do you want to specifically use Razor-qt,
?what puppy are you running,
?do you have the space for qt4 as it's not small,
?what do you plan on using it for, and
?are you able to support it youself after install.

Let me have answers here and i'll see if I can help.

Apps running with QT : it would be fine to get a list of apps needing QT.

Hello everyone!

I'm using the precise 5.5 and installed the latest version of razor-qt using the packages from the official repository. It worked well, except that it hasn't recognized any of my window managers... but I'm sure someone has already commented about it.

Of course, after reading this I may try again later using Openbox.
