I try to add a quicklaunch item to the panel in Lubuntu 18.10. This seems only to work with drag and drop from the start menu and not via a menu for the panel setting.
This is how I did it in Lubuntu 19.04 to get the qterminal into the panel by changing the quicklaunch-section in the file "~/.config/lxqt/panel.conf":
[quicklaunch] alignment=Left apps\1\desktop=/usr/share/applications/pcmanfm-qt.desktop apps\2\desktop=/usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop apps\3\desktop=/usr/share/applications/qterminal.desktop apps\size=3 > type=quicklaunch
Is the only way to add a quicklaunch in LXQt by mouse? (understood as drag-and-drop)
What I just did in Lubuntu 20.04:
- Right click on the panel -> Configure panel
- Select Widgets
- Select + (Add widget)
- Select Quick launch. This opens a new group of quick launch icons. Select the terminal icon from the menu.
You could check the contents of
~/.config/lxqt/panel.conf, under sections
[quicklaunch2], to understand the implied changes.
This is what I obtained
[quicklaunch2] alignment=Left apps\1\desktop=/usr/share/applications/qterminal.desktop apps\size=1 type=quicklaunch
Manual modifications suggested in other answers are consistent with this.
