Have you completely read what I wrote?
Right click works yes. But selecting a wireless network does not.
Clicking gives me a message that network is disabled.
Manually trying to add a network is not possible the dialog vanishes
when I try to do it.
I used nmtui to connect to my network.

Yeah I saw pcmanfm-qt also installed and that looks and works fine. Why
are lxterminal and pcman (gtk version) even installed?

I also noticed there is some qt password manager (qtpass) installed of
some. Though it relies on gpg (gnupg) and this is not installed by
default so this app is totally useless.

The same goes for Discover. It does load up but does not show any
software applications. Even after running apt-get update it does not
show up anything (is apport maybe missing. Did not have time to check this)

Muon and Synaptic seem redundant aswell.

MPV in the Multimedia menu should be hidden by default as it is only
used as backend for SMPlayer.

SMplayer needs a theming fitting the rest of the system.

PCManFM-Qt needs a sane config (xterm is set as default terminal that
isn't even installed needs Qterm and Xarchiver as archiving app)

I hope these issues can be fixed until the release.

Regarding the theming. Not sure what is stopping the devs to create a
small theming lubuntu-lxqt-theming or whatever package to make it look a
bit like Lubuntu and not stock LXQt.
