and we should do the "intervention" here https://github.com/hmollercl/pcmanfm-qt/blob/master/pcmanfm/desktopwindow.cpp#L618

I have an idea, instead of use xrandr to get the current monitor configuration to use ~/.config/lxqt/lxqt-config-monitor.conf [currentConfig] info.
I answered in -devel. The cfg file won't be needed if "grub-install" or "grub-mkconfig" which run from cala during installation, detect the theme automatically. If they don't, I will add it again. Have it safe in my github.
Could you please answer these questions?

What is the use case for the "new login" button? I mean, if a user locks the screen, the user normally wants to unlock the existing session again.

there is a problem when no internet is found by geoclue. But that's more a redshift problem than a redshift-gtk or redshift-qt. There is no fallback. However, you can give redshift and redshift-qt manual latitude:
-l LAT:LON Your current location
I haven't take the time to see if the ppa will actually update the version, is more for testing purposes (instead of giving the .deb)

I added PPA onto 20.04 sony vaio ultrabook (i5-9400u, 4gb, intel haswell-ULT); and installed redshift-qt there (no redshift was installed). This box wasn't updated first and I started play it crashed pretty quickly (problem encountered; nothing in /var/crash/); I'd intended updating whilst I played.... I'll blame the non-upgrading first; though my internet has been flapping (no connection 6-7 times per hour for a ~minute) so maybe it wasn't getting geoclue responses?? Sorry I closed it & rebooted to start again before it occurred to me I should explore (stuck on the no full-upgrade first!)
- initial play (very early);
My main box (d960): Redshift-qt's panel icon was a blue box/diamond with a light blue icon partially visible, I no longer recall when the "!" got replaced by the blue-box sorry. I can see the package there (in browser) but sudo apt update didn't see it available so I wget & dpkg -i installed on my 20.04 primary box; I used the 'quit' option to have program quit & restarted it. It was back to "!" icon set; operation appears identical & I didn't see any differences (very short play; it'll take days to test properly with color shifting due to time). Maybe it needs a logout/login; test that later...
This is my primary box; very non-standard config & rebooted about once a week
@guiverc I just uploaded version 0.5-1 to ppa, could you test it if icons works ok?

After some looking in the source of lxqttaskbar (part of the source for lxqt-panel), I was unable to find a function for switching to the next task. I only found the code for switching to a specific task number from 1-10 as is already implemented in Lubuntu at the end of the source code.
thanks @guiverc I think problem is that Oxygen Icon doesn't have redshift icons so fall back to whatever. I will have to revisit where should I leave the icons during installation.

This is a little late, but I've tested the PPA (https://launchpad.net/~hmollercl/+archive/ubuntu/redshift-qt) on a 19.10 box (d780) without issue and my primary system running 20.04 (d960) without issue.
I have done some digging and this is what I have found thus far.

No rush. Whenever works for you.
Just wanted to say that although I am not on IRC right now, I haven't forgotten about this. This day just turned out a bit heavier than expected at work, so I haven't got as far as I thought I would by now. I have read a bit on freedesktop.org about standards for window handling, but haven't had time to look into the source of lxat-globalkeys or dive deeper into packaging. I also need to set up a VPS with an IRC bouncer. I think tomorrow afternoon and the weekend will be a good time to dive deeper...
I thinks that this from bugie is a little overwhelming

Thank you! I'll be in touch soon. And thank you for giving me this chance to learn and hopefully contribute something! :-)
Have a good night and talk to you soon. Thanks again!
Maybe I can to a certain degree? I haven't tried, so I wouldn't know. Ok. I need to brush my teeth and go to bed now, but I am looking forward to learning more and hopefully contribute something useful to Lubuntu. :-)
For what it's worth, I'm no C++ programmer myself, although I can follow the logic enough to at least try to figure out what's happening. I imagine if you've had any experience with any programming language, you probably know enough to do that.
Ok, so maybe 20 is a good bet then. I am not fluent in C++ (or any other programming language really. In the 90s I did some very entry level 68k Assembler on a microcontroller and played a lot with HyperTalk/HyperCard, so unless the source code is really well commented, the cpp manual will probably be greek to me. I have just started reading a bit about python to dip my toes into the programming water again, but maybe C++ would be more useful?). I like to learn stuff, so hopefully that will help...
I *might* be awake 15-17 UTC. 20 would probably be better. Of course, like I said, others are there.
Ok. I would have to look into that as well. It's been a few years since I was on IRC last time.
I'd highly recommended that you get a bouncer and idle in the channel. Otherwise, use Telegram or Matrix. :)
OK. I am going to brush my teeth in 29 minutes and go to bed. Tomorrow, I have a long work day from 8 to around 20 with some open time in the middle. I will start to read up on the packaging documentation then. Maybe I could get in touch on IRC in that break or in the evening after I come home? (I have a one hour commute home as well.) I am at Central European Time (UTC+1), so that would be somewhere around 15-17 UTC or after 20 UTC.
It's just one of those things that having synchronous communication would be really helpful with. If you join #lubuntu-devel on Freenode, not only will I be there, but our whole team of developers, so we can all help together.
Perfect! I don't use any of them much, but I could easily fire up an IRC client.
It most certainly stands. Do you IRC or Telegram or what?
You are right. I have plenty of time to translate the rest. If the offer still stands, I'd be curious to learn about packaging and development! :-)
I think it would be really great to have an indication that a development release is a development release. I'd like us to have a stock "in construction" wallpaper (this would be a great use for Lenny). For that matter, Plymouth could use the same methodology. For the text-based, we could include the actual codename and/or version. That's my 2¢.

Also an FYI I found out recently: KWin swallowed up the screensaver and includes it.
Ready with the repo and initial commit https://phab.lubuntu.me/source/redshift-qt/
not sure what I need to do next.

Ok, well, you've got until about spring of next year so you've got some time!
User error? Never heard of it 😆
there is new redshift-qt upstream release https://github.com/Chemrat/redshift-qt/releases/tag/v0.5
That sounds very interesting, but I am afraid to take on responsibilites that I am unable to fulfil properly. I already have some work waiting with translating LXQt and tsujan tools to Norwegian Bokmål that I should finish before taking on more. But thank you for the offer! :-)
