adding lxqt to antergos

As I wrote in "from spain, antergos", "The Antergos installer lets the user choose between Cinnamon, GNOME, KDE, MATE, Openbox, and Xfce desktops; I went with Openbox."

Later, I added LXQt, from the Arch repos. Here's what I saw at the command line:

$ sudo pacman -S lxqt
[sudo] password for steve:

Here's what the LXQt desktop looked like when I first logged into the session:

I had to change the icon theme from Adwaita to Numix to get all of my icons to show up in the menu and on the panel:

Looks like there aren't many themes for LXQt, and I don't think user themes are supported. I'm using the Ambiance theme for now:

To get transparency in xfce4-terminal, I enabled Compton in Session Settings:
