[pkg-lxqt-devel] Bug#911669: lxqt-session: metapackage install defaults to xfwm4 for window manager

TLDR: Fresh install of lxqt-session defaults to using
xfwm4 instead of openbox as the window manager.
I recently wanted to try out lxqt on Debian, so after a look
through packages.debian.org, I thought that testing would be
a reasonable place to try it out.
I'm using VMWare on Windows to try it out. I installed
the i386 netinstall version, using the 9.5 install disc.
I did a full install (nothing spectacular), and then changed
my sources.list to point to buster after a full install.
I then executed apt update && apt dist-upgrade. After that
was complete, I then executed an apt autoremove. The next
packages I installed were build-essential, cmake, and vim.
Probably unrelated to lqxt-session, but I'm including that
I then did an apt install lxqt-session --install-recommends.
After that I did a reboot and was greeted to a desktop
manager. It appears to be sddm (no surprises there --
desired outcome). I logged in and noticed window decorations
looked funny. /etc/alternatives/x-window-manager was
pointing to xfwm4, which explains the funny-looking windows.
I then installed openbox manually (apt install openbox),
which pointed that link to openbox. Another reboot.
I'm all set now, I feel the metapackage should maybe
pull in openbox (I have no idea how to package software..)
if that is possible instead of xfwm4. A look at apt show
lxqt-session doesn't look like it pulls in a window manager
at all, so I'm assuming it's one of the dependencies for
the metapackage, or maybe my use of --install-recommends.
Thanks for your support of Debian and LXQt! I'm eager to
help if you need my assistance any further.
