NAME
       startlxqt - script to initialize	and launch LXQt	sessions

SYNOPSIS
       startlxqt

DESCRIPTION
       startlxqt  is  a	 shell script meant to initialize and launch LXQt ses-
       sions.  It is as	such similar to	counterparts of	other desktop environ-
       ments like startlxde in LXDE or startkde	in KDE.

       It's  main tasks	are exporting environment variables, partly after per-
       forming corresponding checks, and launching lxqt-session, the LXQt ses-
       sion manager.

       It  is not meant	to be run by users.  Rather, it	is invoked as backend,
       e. g. by	script startx on virtual terminals or  display	managers  like
       SDDM or LightDM,	see section EXAMPLE.

FILES
       $XDG_DATA_DIRS/xsessions/lxqt.desktop
	    Desktop  entry  file  stating  startlxqt as	binary needed to start
	    LXQt sessions. Sourced e. g.  by display managers.

BUGS
       None  at	 the  time  of	this  writing.	Bugs  can   be	 reported   on
       https://github.com/lxqt/lxqt/issues.

EXAMPLE
       To  start an LXQt session from a	virtual	terminal (virtual console) add
       a line

	    exec startlxqt

       to file ~/.xinitrc. An LXQt session will	then be	 launched  by  running
       startx.

       Display	managers  are  making  use of scripts like startlxqt automati-
       cally. Information about	available desktop environments is provided  by
       files   $XDG_DATA_DIRS/xsessions/*.desktop,  typically  /usr/share/xes-
       sions/*.desktop.
       File lxqt.desktop provided by LXQt is stating  startlxqt	 in  key  Exec
       while  making sure the session manager lxqt-session does	exist by stat-
       ing it in key TryExec.
