Everything is normal working before the upgrade. After upgraded, those issues are the following: 1, When file manager is opened, the mouse is always busy. 2, The whole task bar aera is no more working. it neither be clicked, nor working.(I tried alt ctr d and desktop did now show, but the terminal still shows via hotkeys). And the menu is just kind of disapper--it is an ellipsis instead.(of course cannot be click nor hotkeyed too).
OK, except of those, all seems normal;since the menu is inavalible, I cannot use the apps, I have to write in my smart phone browser.However, I can open and veiw the files via file manager.
Same problem here with LXQt Version 0.14.1. Qt: 5.15.2, Build type Release.
Well. how to resolve this?
Sparky 5 or 6 5= Stable is qt 5.11 I have 14.1 in stable. 14.1 in sparky 6 - testing 0.16.0 in Sid.
6 I would advise to use Alt-F2 to get a terminal and then run pcmanfm-qt (the file manager) there to see if any error messages appear. All apps can be started in a terminal. You can stack ternimals with tmux, something to learn down the road. Check out the lxqt IRC and possibly ask for help upstream in LXQT. Look for error logs in the usual places.
As I have posted previous, the most involved Debian (Alf) in LXQT who also is the Debian maintainer has been absent since April. I hope he is well.
All has been well here in Stable for me.
If I run:
in the terminal-window the following error-message:
Failed to load module "xapp-gtk3-module"
Well that's not good, Should be all QT5 dependencies for that. I do not know what else to say. If you are new to LInux and are running Sparky 6 - Rolling, you might want to go with the stable Sparky 5. Testing is normally not too crazy, but what with the externals happening to various Debian teams and Maintainers, progress will vary.
1 Question Have you installed several DE's (Desktop Environments) - if so the dot files (.blahDE .blah-app) can cause problems.
No. I have installed only this DE.
I am just a hobbyist who has used LXQT from stable to testing to unstable for years, but only have a stable version at present. IRC (Internet Relay Chat) is something that took me a bit of time to learn and it takes time to watch the problems surface from others. On OFTC #lxqt To start using irc on a system that is not working well is even less fun. I am all out of ideas.

Those issues are fixed in Sid. It is matter of time for the fix to land in debian testing repo. Please have patience and wait little bit more.
Meanwhile to prevent lxqt panel from crushing disable qlipper. Running killall qlipper
in terminal whenever you reboot your system would be way to go.
All seems better after some full-upgrades, but the file mangager, PCman, probably need to be fixed. I have notice that PCman is not the lastest update yet. Since old stable is highly suggusted, I feel sorry. I have realized that semi-rolling takes more time and times to upgrade, and may not be stable.
I have done an update today, and all works fine.
