And after a qt5 upgrade you may need to re-install/compile <code>qt5ct</code>.
small changes for a better understanding
Alternatively, follow this guide to install a more modern window manager with higher hardware resources: [[LXQt with kwin]]
=Window Content Theming=
yaourt -S vertex-themes
Edit manually the theme files to further
customise if you like.
=Theming A Pure Qt4/5 System=
customising a pure Qt4/5 system you can use the preinstalled qtconfig-qt4 and its qt5 version, [http://qt-apps.org/content/show.php/Qt5+Configuration+Tool?content=168066 qt5ct] which you can easily compile , (as of this writing) if you have qt5 version 5.4.0 or higher.
customisation by this tool will not be honoured immediately (only) by <code>pcmanfm-qt</code> which runs in your LXQt system in daemon mode. In order for it to honour your customisation you need to re-login.
In addition to the preinstalled
qt theme engines you can install <code>qtcurve-qt4</code> and <code>qtcurve-qt5</code> from the repo by:
sudo pacman -S qtcurve-qt4 qtcurve-qt5
Those two theming engines by themselves
have some customisability too. With <code>qtcurve</code> you need to manually edit the <code>~/.config/qtcurve/stylerc</code> file. You can, for instance, change the menu bar background colour by
yaourt -S kdestyle-kvantum-kde4-git
It doesn't have KDE dependencies, but its said
customisation utility seemingly only works in KDE (at this time) as I couldn't see any such utility in my system after installing it. <code>kvantum</code> can be installed as a qt5 app as well, but since there's no separate qt5 AUR package, you need to install it once more as a qt5 app. To do that you should edit the package content when <code>yaourt</code> ask you to; just replace the "qt4" entries with "qt5".
