It's possible but I didn't notice this time around. The reason for not
noticing is that I've also been using the Openbox session of Lubuntu for a
while and the fonts did need fixing. I had to do things to ~/.Xresources to
fix matters. So the LXQt session maybe influenced by the contents of that

My ~/.Xresources looks like this:

! Render setting for cairo -> pango -> gtk
Xft.dpi:        96
Xft.antialias:  true
Xft.hinting:    true
Xft.rgba:       rgb
Xft.hintstyle:  hintslight

and I made that file based on advice from

Of course, things may or may not work the same way for you but all the best!
