Is there a reason Funtoo seems to be lagging behind with certain software? The one I notice in particular is with desktop environments: Plasma is only available as version 5.12.3 and LXQt is only available as 0.11. I can somewhat understand Plasma 5.12, since that is the LTS release, though I'd like to see the improvements from 5.13 on my Funtoo system. 5.12.6 is the latest LTS though, so it's still behind the current LTS. LXQt being on 0.11 means two years of not being updated, with the project now on 0.13. Is this due to following Gentoo (I notice 5.12.5 and 0.11 being the latest "stable" ebuilds, respectively) and not bringing over the "testing" ebuilds? A lack of manpower to keep these things updated? If the former, would it be possible to have non-default "current" branches of DE kits so we can get the latest stable version? I notice that I could subscribe to the KDE and Qt Gentoo testing overlays, but I assume they are called "testing" for a reason and would rather not chance random breakages from unstable build scripts.
new funtoo installer here. Installed from chroot/tarball. everything was going ok, untill I installed lxqt i got this error: xinit? QXcbConnection: Could not connect to display turns out xorg-x11 wasn't installed. wtf? I installed lxqt but no xorg-x11? is this a normal error? also the /etc/portage/profile directory wasn't there, so I had to create that and the /etc/portage/profile/use.mask file Why do I feel like i'm fumbling in the dark here? then i had more xorg errors turns out x11-base/xorg-drivers wasn't emerged after xorg-x11 is this a normal error? despite people on irc saying the lxqt metapackage had applications, All i had were pcmanfm and a web browser. any comments on that? the one that took the longest to figure out was when I tried installing qterminal http://pastie.org/10258016 "!!! The ebuild selected to satisfy "qterminal" has unmet requirements. - x11-terms/qterminal-0.6.0::gentoo USE="-debug -qt4 -qt5" after straining my brain past its design limits, i figured out taht to install qterminal I had to add a line to /etc/portage/make.conf with: USE="qt5" is this normal error? startx was only working for the root user until i did a echo "exec startlxqt" > .xinitrc xdm still isn't working. Xdm flashes like it's doing something, but then flashes back to the xdm screen. so i have qterminal and stuff now. It's working. so It feels like i'm still fumbling around in the dark. Why was this stuff necessary? This can't be a normal funtoo install can it? I feel that I may have found a bug, or that I really don't understand how to use funtoo. Please shed some light on the questions in bold. TIA.
