Current status

Detailed Description

LXQt has moved out of 0.x version and is now 1.1.0, so I consider it to be a pretty stable desktop environment. Recently, 64bit ARM architecture is becoming more and more popular in laptops and workstations. By generating a LXQt image for aarch64 will offer aarch64 another easier option to evaluate and use Fedora.

Benefit to Fedora

Offers users of 64bit ARM architecture another desktop option that works out-of-the-box.


  • Proposal owners: Nothing. The LXQt packages are already in the distribution. And the kickstart for generating LXQt image on x86_64 can be directly used.
  • Other developers: N/A (not a System Wide Change)
  • Release engineering: 11086 (a check of an impact with Release Engineering is needed)
  • Policies and guidelines: N/A (not a System Wide Change)
  • Trademark approval: N/A (not needed for this Change)

Upgrade/compatibility impact

N/A (not a System Wide Change)

How To Test

Install using the ISO or the disk image on aarch64 system. The system should work as it should be by manually installing on top of any existing aarch64 system.

User Experience

Users of aarch64 systems should be able to directly install from LXQt ISO or disk image if they want to use LXQt.


We need to ask release engineering team to generate the image.

Contingency Plan

  • Contingency mechanism: Just do not ship the newly generated image.
  • Contingency deadline: Fedora 38 Beta Freeze
  • Blocks release? N/A (not a System Wide Change)
