Thanks for being here. I find GeckoLinux as a beautiful GNU/Linux distribution. Last day I was exploring GeckoLinux LXQt edition and I would like to say, you have a nice choice of icons, themes and wall paper.

GeckoLinux LXQt screenshots are published here.

Wish you all the best with this distribution.
