Hi, iḿ very impressed by SparkyLinux.

Have some problems with LXQT.
Installed it yesterday and updated it, so the system is actual.
But affter switching to KWin i cannot start KWin Settings. And neighter with OpenBox nor KWin i can start Synaptic. Could You please help me.
Thanks an sorry for my bad English.


LXQT is going with "Tier 1" kf5 components - programs.  These are based on qt5 and have no kde components - I am NOT an expert at this.  Your adding kwin-x11 at this point might be  bringing in things from kde5 which is in a very large and difficult transition.  You can look at bug reports at debian and also at kde for kwin and it's dependencies. 

Do research, listen to others, but I am having no problems with the openbox-lxqt combination in testing with sparky and on sid with lxqt. 

Synaptic, if you are choosing to learn in a debian-testing system, the more you use command line programs - especially apt-get ...   for your upgrades, dist-upgrades and new installs the less problems you will see in the long term. 

added  IRC channel for kwin  is #kwin on freenode

Debian bugs for kwin  testing and unstable are the same version;dist=unstable
Search forum for "More info easier via inxi"    If requested -  no inxi, no help for you by  me.
