    Install LXQt on Ubuntu 14.04 missing default window manager

    I intalled LxQt on Ubuntu 14.04 using following commands in terminal window ...

    sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lubuntu-dev/lubuntu-daily
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gilir/q-project
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get install lxqt-metapackage
    sudo apt-get install lxqt-panel

    reboot and click small circle to chose LXQt login option

    message displayed:
    please select your default window manager
    other... chose your favourite one.
    you will be able to change this at any time through
    Preferences > Session settings > Basic Settings


    I am unable to select window manager, so I had a look on google and wonder is system looking for openbox or PCManFM-Qt ? not sure what to do here.

    I am completely new to linux so if someone could explain how to fix this I would be grateful. is there an easy command line I can use in the terminal?

    any help would be appreciated

    It was buggy the last time I tried, but this did work:

    thanks kansasnoob for your prompt reply, I also got a reply from http://forum.lxde.org where Rex suggested install the default Window Manager for Lubuntu (which is Openbox) by following command line....

    sudo apt-get install openbox obconf

    after restart I was able to select LxQt from the login screen.

    cheers, Hugh

    Well, I'm using LXQt full-time for the last couple of days.

    As for bugs, even relatively mature software churned out by huge corporates can have bugs. So that's neither here nor there.

    All the best with your Linux adventure.
