Is Linux Lite 3.0 locked into systemd, or is there an option?


Good question and I would like to add one if I may..
can one run as root or is it one of those distros that try to save you from yourself?

Must say it looks pretty nice but at 960MB, it's hardly '"Lite".

The Ubuntu installer bugs me more than anything. I guess I need to find a tutorial for an Ubuntu custom install.

This custom search of DistroWatch lists distributions with no systemd:

Off the top of my head I believe Ubuntu 13.10 Raring was the start of systemd in Ubuntu and distros based on Ubuntu including Linux Lite.

Just checked,Linux Lite 2.8 and later have systemd.

Razor-qt's officially obsolete now, but I've found it an excellent addition to a distro like Zorin which, although it has an excellent set of apps, has defauit window manager settings which I find get in the way of what I'm trying to do. It looks good too, with a big and easily readable desktop clock and yet no additional or unnecessary clutter (especially if you use Openbox as the window manager).

For those who are interested in installing it, here are the commands to type in at the terminal;

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:razor-qt

sudo apt-get update

Once the software sources have been updated, Razor-Qt can finally be installed.

sudo apt-get install razorqt

how so? only asking, not out of skepticism. ive used it, i thought lxde was moving to lxqt (with essentially the same code to start with, so perhaps this is what you mean by "obsolete.") i havent heard about this move in a year or more.

for general (and colonel) lxde fans, perhaps even fluxbox fans (which im not) i can vouch for the tint2 panel-- it plays very nicely with openbox, even on older/low ram systems.

the one gripe about tint2 is that its config menu is terrible. if youre happy with the default settings, its great-- if you want to tweak them, you may be happier editing the settings file than using the settings gui. (ymmv.)

i love openbox and lxde, and im interested in what they do next.

Hi Learnhow2code,

here's what Wikipedia says;

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Razor-qt

LXQt is the main project now, and was formed from the merger of the LXDE and Razor-qt projects;

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LXQt

You probably know more about the constituent libraries and toolkits of razor-qt than I do. I use it because I like the sleek, well-integrated look, including the big desktop clock which AFAIK isn't included in any other desktop environment including LXQt and LXDE, and the fact that it's easy on system resources.

Yes it is, and as you probably know it's a "rolling release" meaning that you only need to install it to your hard drive once. From then on you can update it from the installation as often as is necessary.

im out of the habit of checking wikipedia-- so many articles deleted because WP:PIDGAF i just assume something the size of razor-qt wont be there.

it used to be something i went to before trying a search engine, cheers.

It's on my main computer (along with MX-15, and a couple of Puppies). Stella is on there to stay for a loooooooong time to come.

sorry, it was actually a tongue-in-cheek go at the various acronyms wikipedians preface with WP: so that they dont have to spell out the same nonsense repeatedly.

i know its an international forum, though i hoped "IDGAF" (i dont give a...) ("i dont care") was universal enough among (we) non-wikipedians.

the "p" stands for "personally," the implication that stuff gets deleted all the time just because some WP:POS doesnt think it matters. then their buddies vote on whether theyre right using the same criteria. (in my opinion.)

i get more tired of the site every year. but it IS a very wonderful idea.

@Billtoo

I have downloaded it (via torrent as mirrors in Australia haven't propagated yet) and will install soon.. but at the moment I am busily building the next slacko alpha based on 14.2 (64 for the moment).
