    This is an old thread... but I was browsing around and I saw there was a notice at the top of this page https://en.opensuse.org/LXQt should be merged with this page https://en.opensuse.org/Portal:LXQt

    In my lack of understanding and since nothing I did seemed to have fixed the layout. Some one with some Wiki-foo powers needs to fix the boxes so they look right, for example: https://en.opensuse.org/Portal:Budgie

    I tried copying the bits to force the layout but that didn't work so I gave up, put the information in there and called it good.


    Additionally, the link to this page: https://cubiclenate.com/2019/01/27/u...with-opensuse/ should probably be replaced with another proper wiki page. I didn't initially link the page to the wiki, and it does go to my personal site but I just think it would be better if it was rebuilt for the wiki as it is likely this process will change and require updates which would be better served by the community as a whole rather than just some dude.

    When I have some additional time, I can get to adding that page as SDB:Kwin on LXQt or something like that but what I really need is for someone to fix the formatting of Portal:LXQt so it doesn't look silly.

    Thanks!

    In general,
    All MediaWiki code works in openSUSE Wiki pages.
    You can apply templates for a consistent look, but I don't know that the MediaWiki Textboxes you're talking about are part of any openSUSE template.

    In fact,
    The openSUSE Portal pages generally have their own "look" and although I don't have any strong personal opinion, obviously the "look" you're giving the LXQt portal page won't be the same as any other Portal pages.

    If you want to copy a "look" from any MeidaWiki page,
    It's not difficult... Just click on the main "Edit" link for the page copy the code and paste it wherever you want.

    In fact,
    On my own Wiki pages, I maintain my own sandbox... of a number of layouts and objects I use in both my Wiki and various openSUSE wiki pages including SDBs.
    I'd recommend you do the same, if something has a particular "look" whether it's a layout or a widget or formatting,
    Copy it into a page in your own Wiki, and play around with it until you understand how the code works.

    I think I might just "start over" with the page and fill the information in. That might be the easiest way. I tried copying from the Budgie Portal but that didn't work either.

    Good work. Not being as adventurous or inspired as futureboy, I contented myself with putting my experiences of LXQt on my own website at https://johnrhudson.me.uk/computing/Adventures_LXQt.pdf. Feel free to use anything in that (note that some of the images are now out-of-date as LXQt has since been updated). I have been using LXQt as my primary desktop for a couple of years now and am very satisfied with it. There are some quirks which I am sure will be ironed out in future updates but nothing to affect my everyday productivity which is significantly more than when I used KDE as my primary desktop - KDE now seems really slow by comparison.
