Issues related to the Xfce desktop.
Xfce - application icons not displayed in 'notification area'
H

I was thinking what changes I had made after the original installation that may have caused the icons to behave this way, and the only changes were…

Added the ‘Whisker Menu’ to the top panel and removed the default ‘Applications Menu’

Installed Redshift (adjusts colour temperature of screen in evenings)

I decided to add the default ‘Applications Menu’ back on the top Panel and rebooted and the three application icons are now visible in the ‘notification area’. So maybe this is needed somehow to display the icons.

Later, I removed the default ‘Applications Menu’ again to see if it causes the same problem again and after a reboot, the icons are still visible in the ‘notification area’.

Not sure what’s going on here but the icons are behaving normally again so I will mark this topic as SOLVED.

Issues related to the LXQt desktop.
LXQT desde Cnchi

Aunque el hilo tiene ya 2 años el asunto es exactamente el mismo y nada parece haber cambiado por lo que me he permitido reabrirlo.
Sólo quería solicitar, si ello es posible, que incluyeran entre las opciones de instalación de Antergos una con escritorio LXQt las razones es que es ligero, consumo de ram mínimo, estable, bonito, Widget toolkit: Qt 5 y Display manager: SDDM como KDE Plasma pero sin los problemas de tearing de Kwin (Wayland compositor) con algunas tarjetas gráficas Nvidia.

Como simple sugerencias aporto esta información:

LxQt instalación:
sudo pacman -S lxqt-common

sudo pacman -S lxqt-panel (dependencias desde Pamac)
pcmanfm-qt Administrador de archivos
lxqt-config
lxqt-notificationd
lxqt-openssh-askpass
lxqt-policykit
obconf-qt
lxqt-sudo
lxqt-session
lxqt-runner
lxqt-qtplugin
lxqt-powermanagement
lxqt-admin
lxqt-build-tools-git (AUR) o lxqt-build-tools
lxqt-about
lximage-qt Visor de imágenes
qterminal Consola ( Funciona mejor aquí que Konsole)
lxterminal
menu-cache
compton-conf-git
CMake
libsysstat
lxqt-globalkeys
libfm-qt
juffed-qt5-git Editor de texto. AUR
xbindkeys Lauch shell commands under x. En consola
attica-qt5
avahi
openbox
qt5
sddm

xscreensaver Salvapantallas

gpicview-gtk3 Visor de imágenes. Casi igual que lximage-qt - Sacar por consola: gpicview
adwaita-qt5 Menús oscuros (AUR)

Otros:
cantata music player daemon
