LXQt feedback from Google Code-In


As I mentioned before, I made a task for Google Code-In students to do a
little exploratory testing with LXQt in Xenial (similar to instructions
[here][1]) and I just had the first feedback, so I thought I'd share:

When I click the start button, the menu appears at the top left corner, but
> it went normal after I reboot the machine:
> https://bugs.launchpad.net/lubuntu-next/+bug/1527013. After I changed
> LXDE into LXQt, I found there is an arrow besides "Programming" menu but it
> shows an empty list after I clicked on it so I think that is a bug related
> to the package lxqt-panel. I find a similar one at launch pad:
> https://bugs.launchpad.net/lubuntu-next/+bug/1388293. In addition, when I
> try to move application onto desktop, there is a window appears and
> displays “cannot copy a file into its sub folder”, here is the link:
> https://bugs.launchpad.net/lubuntu-next/+bug/1527011 . Another strange
> thing is that, I installed another language (preference > language support)
> in LXQt, and changed the regional format into this language, however the
> example underneath displayed “Failed to apply format choice” so I close and
> re-opened the tab and select that language again and this time it is
> normal. I don’t know if it counts as a bug or not.

The first thing I want to say about LXQt is that the default wallpaper is
> really ugly…LXDE has a much more pleasant default wallpaper. I also prefer
> the design of GUI in LXDE, it looks more refined. There are several icons
> at the task bar in LXDE, however you need to drop application icons at
> LXQt. Moreover, it is much easier to move icons around, i.e. onto desktop
> in LXDE. There isn’t any icons (not even trash bin!) at desktop which made
> me feel very habits :P. However, LXQt does seem runs faster as I believe it
> is more lightweight than LXDE.
