No problem. It should be a trivial thing to resolve. Thanks so much for bringing it up!

There's an upstream discussion on porting LXQt to Qt6 and the tl;dr is:
When I originally wrote this, I really hadn't looked into the mechanisms employed in the Ubuntu minimal install. I'm not sure why I'm shocked to find this, but it looks like it's a simple matter of package removal.

With 7 in Groovy and Hirsute, are we good to go? What else needs to be done?
Sounds resolved to me.
Support for 18.04 ends in April. We'll close this then.
I will assume this has been long resolved.
Heh well that was surprisingly quick :) He gave it the ok so @profetik777 if you are still around and willing to help, I'm ready to make this happen.
I have no clue how I missed this. Bummer. I don't want to make it hard for people to contribute but having editor access to the website is a high privilege so before I do this, I want to confirm with @tsimonq2 that he does approve. Then I can make this happen using your email.
The only reason I said that is because you said "you would need to be mounting files from an install."
I think it's wise to document it somewhere and Discourse is as good as any. However, I think my little solution needs a more organized format if we were to use for the purposes of documentation. I guess I can probably edit that post and we can call it good.

picom is in Groovy and beyond, so I'm changing the scope here.

@apt-ghetto correct me if I'm wrong, but this issue seems to be completely resolved, right? Should I close this?

Here's a potential fix for already installed systems.
I used to take notes in my discrete math classes in LaTeX, so if help is needed there, I can probably assist. However, I suspect that @lynorian's Sphinx skills will likely suffice.

Now with Matterbridge (T124) up, Arabic works fine. We're all set!
Discourse is done: T94.
Yeah, basically anything that relates to development, contributing, and the like should go into our wiki here and everything else should relate to LXDE, which we won't be supporting post April 2021. Rather than deleting it, converting it into an LXDE rather than a Lubuntu wiki, will allow LXDE users (that we no longer support) to still see the info. Looks good. Thanks @guiverc!
One thing to note: Matterbridge, unlike TeleIRC, depends upon numeric group IDs for Telegram. This is good because it reduces ambiguity and prevents weird things from happening (perhaps why Lubuntu Arabic wasn't working with TeleIRC? Still don't know) but it's apparently a royal pain to figure out those IDs. @teward had to do some API hacking to get it set up and will document it soon.

Nice! Oh, one small thing: the line should separate sections, i.e. IRC, Matrix and Telegram, rather than separating English versus non-English.

I think in an ideal world we should do all of them so we don't have to rethink this again. I'll also change the main topic to match. That way when we change the topic, it's just a matter of getting the main one translated instead of working out specific things for specific channels.
Maybe we should wrap the two together, so the text would be something like "Other languages/support options." So we'd need a translation.
@kc2bez thanks for that! Now we just need to do the same thing for IRC and Matrix.
I was thinking maybe we use the word "Arabic." We could use the one you gave me for Discourse (بالعربية) or the one I found on Wikipedia (اَلْعَرَبِيَّةُ) or something else that Arabic-speakers might suggest. Ask them!
Thanks! @kc2bez is going to hack at the website. Meanwhile, when you have time, it would be nice to get the icons for Arabic. At the very least, we should advertise the Telegram channel. And eventually I'm going to figure out what's up with TeleIRC.

Thanks! Don't forget I need the Telegram one for Portuguese.
Right, so we need one icon for Telegram (like we currently have for -es with the flag), one for IRC (-es is there but isn't using a flag, which it should), and one for Matrix (same as with IRC). Hope that makes sense.
Oh no, great job to you and the rest of the folks providing support for all of these users which we otherwise couldn't reach well before.
I got all the factoids set up. I opted not to make factoids within all the localized channels as I can't imagine someone coming to the Chinese channel so they could find out how to get to the French channel. It also saves me a heck of a lot of time XD
At this point, all channels except for -arabic should be all set with the exception of the factoids and the website, so functionally we're in business!
I modified all the topics accordingly so that they do not mention any other IRC channels.
I have problems with the topics for:
