Thanks for sharing.

Hmmm, sadly LXQt does not show the default background - I think I have to fix that again.

kwin, mutter and marco are only window managers, and belong to their desktop environments although they can be used under another.

I made some screenshots of Mageia 5 (Virtualbox) with graphical environments E18 and Lxqt with Mageia background (Mageia 5 KDE, Mageia 5 Enlightenment - E18 e Mageia 5 LXQT), but only some images were resized to 800x500: E18 (here) Lxqt (here)
