+1 on wxl, plus, we should have somewhere links to the manual. A lot of questions people ask are in the manual.

I agree with @kc2bez with poor ram but swap you can do more. We might have to build a "cookbook" for low resources usage. And disable some tings with a minimum install. Does calamares is able to do that yet?

I thought that lxqt should be getting the same info I get with xrandr for their monitor config. https://github.com/lxqt/lxqt-config/tree/master/lxqt-config-monitor
They said they used lxrandr-qt before, but now they use libkscreen.
Not sure if libkscreen can handle wayland but might be a way to go. There exist kscreen and it gives the information needed (number of monitors, size and position)

Latest on this:
After last patch, things works well initially but after 1 and 2 boots runner stop working and then panel (tested only in VM). Stopping and restarting still solve the issue.
Disable autostart for them (panel and runner) and starting it manually does not solve it, still stop and start is needed.
If one deletes ~./config/lxqt/globalkeys.conf and reboot, things work again but further reboot make them fail again.

@wxl unfortunattely the whole .desktop files is "replaced" so all the entries need to be there, and yes, we would have to track the changes.
@tsimonq2 I have only talk to papirus icon usptream they said those icons are used in some filemanager so they need to be monochrome (it doesn't pcmanfm-qt).
We could try to talk to every application and tried them to change the Icon entry in their code.
The most important to me are skanlite, system-config-printer and about-lxqt.

hmollercl added a comment to T72: tweak minimum requirements.

~350Mb is RAM consumption right after first login. One could get around ~300Mb disabling Qlipper, Compton, Printer Applet. Maybe one could disable lxqt-runner (since lxde doesn't have one).
Main problem are current web pages and browsers which are extremely resource hungry (facebook, gmail are a good example).
So, less than 1Gb RAM shouldn't be an option.

So, papirus won't make the change because this "devices" (scanner, printer, desktop) icons in 16x16 are sometimes used in file manager.
So we have to fix it on our own.
The easiest solution is to crete the same .desktop via xdg in ~/.local/share/applications but with different icons.
Those .desktop override the ones in /usr/share/applications.

I understand your concern, maybe we could leave nmcli (as default) and add network-manager-gnome. So users when tray to edit connections with nm-tray will open nmcli, but they stilll can open network-manager-gnome.
And we could change the default with a post-install script, or not, if we decide to be more anti-gtk purist.
