LXQt test and Lubuntu 14.04

I have been running 14.04 with no problems yet.  The lack of a shutdown 
button is not a huge deal especially for ex-windows users, as they are 
used to opening the applications menu to shutdown any way, and I simply 
made a desktop file called shutdown.desktop with
lxsession-logout as the exec...
I really wanted LXQt to work.... but I can wait :)

You knew we had talented artists, just look at the icons!!
