Currently, the main problem is that I can't make sddm to work, but I'm
working on it, using Kubuntu work to see if it can be better.
Finding Qt5 applications, without KDE depends is also not so easy,
which make the ISO bigger that it should be.
You can see the list of applications used under the lubuntu-next
packages on http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~lubuntu-dev/lxde/lxqt-metapackage/view/head:/debian/control
but it will certainly evolve in the future.
