Can I develop widgets (or extensions) for desktop environments with Qt?

  • Hi; I'm using Qt 5.8 and I want to develop widgets or extensions like Gnome Pie, Cairo Dock, Plank Dock etc. for desktop environmets (Gnome, Unity, LxQt, KDE etc.) with Qt. Is it possible? If it is possible with Qt, how can I develop it? Thanks.

    Since you'd like to use Qt, you should start by taking a look at KDE as it's based on Qt also. Also the KDE community is pretty friendly.
