LXQt is a desktop environment for Linux and Unix-like operating systems. It was created after the merge of LXDE and Razor-qt projects. Like LXDE, it uses Openbox as its default window manager, but can be configured to use other window managers.

Originally planned to be released in 2013, the release of the final version 1.0.0 was delayed for 8 years. It was released on 5 November 2021.
