lxqt-runner - Man Page

Application runner module of LXQt, the Lightweight Desktop Environment




This module will allow you to launch an application by typing Alt+F2 its pressed on the keyboard.

The LXQt modules are desktop independent tools, and operate as daemons for the local user for desktop specific operations.

LXQt is an advanced, easy-to-use, and fast desktop environment based on Qt technologies, ships several core desktop components, all of which are optional:

* Panel
* Desktop
* Application launcher (this)
* Settings center
* Session handler
* Polkit handler
* Display manager handler

These components perform similar actions to those available in other desktop environments, and their names are self-descriptive.  They are usually not launched by hand but automatically, when choosing a LXQt session in the Display Manager.


As you type, suggestions will appear. Once you see the application you wish to run you can navigate to it using the mouse or arrow keys on your keyboard. Pressing enter or clicking it will launch the application. The activation key can be changed using the window manager or shortcut daemon such as lxqt-globalkeyshortcuts.


This module only shows at LXQt desktop environment, but you can use in others desktops, by setting an configuring into session startup.
