By Umair Wednesday, February 15, 2012

Razor-qt is an advanced, easy-to-use, and fast desktop environment based on Qt technologies. It has been tailored for users who value simplicity, speed, and an intuitive interface. Unlike most desktop environments, Razor-qt also works fine with weak machines.
You can install Razaor-qt on Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin/Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot/Ubuntu 11.04/Linux Mint


In this version new components: razor-policykit, razor-power (power management tool) and razor-autosuspend (a tool to suspend/wake-up laptops on Lid events or power status events) as well as some panel improvements:
  • the panel can be moved
  • configurable panel width and height
  • the clock now uses a new simple calendar
Other changes:
  • XDG autostart and Razor-qt autostart feature improved
  • Session: limit auto-repeat attempts when application crashes frequently
  • many minor updates and improvements

Install on Ubuntu/Linux Mint enter commands in Terminal:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:razor-qt
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install razorqt razorqt-config
Now logout and Login by selecting Razor from gear and enjoy light weight Ubuntu Desktop.
