I have just completed a build of LXQT (0.13) using kwin_x11 running on manjaro. It was a peculiar build because I initially installed the last formal manjaro LXDE build and stripped out LXDE,openbox, compton and added LXQT with kwin_x11. I did that because it was faster than building it via manjaro architect (which I did yesterday on VirtualBox).
The new install is running on an old Asus K52F laptop (with beefed up memory -8gb) and 1TB disk running @ 5200 rpm (this replaced the original drive which toasted a while ago). It’s about 8 years old (see: https://www.cnet.com/au/reviews/asus-k52f-review/).
I can say that the LXQT (manjaro) install feels VERY fast. The eye candy I’m able to provide is also excellent. My 5 year old grandson will love his educational videos, games, and music.
Here are some screenshots:
Here are the specs (for any who might care to see):
