Description of problem:
Xfce session tries to start lxqt-panel binary and it crashes without useful backtrace.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. dnf groupinstall lxqt xfce
2. log into Xfce session
abrt reports lxqt-panel crash
lxqt-panel does not start at all and no abrt notification
$ grep Only /etc/xdg/autostart/lxqt-panel.desktop
xfce4-session should automatically disable all autostart entries without 'XFCE;' in OnlyShowIn line if there's any. Propably this has to be reported to upstream.
CC maintainers lxqt-panel
This issue happens when autologin is enabled in lightdm.conf and a previous login to LXQt happened, so lightdm seems to get confused what session to start.

What's does this show when that happens?

I am not able to start any application from inside this broken LXQt session, so do not know how to get the requested information. The empty desktop area is blocked for both left and right mouse button. But clicking on desktop icon (single one is Qt Designer) works, so it's no mouse driver issue.
But I can manage to login to Openbox but lxqt-panel does not show there either, though it seems to be running as a process in background without visible GUI.
There's some doubt xfce4-session is the right component to blame at all. It's better to look deeper into Openbox (and lxqt-panel) first.
Not sure if this bug is still of any relevance and I'll test later more with parallel installation of Xfce and LXQt, lowing severity for now.
@Zamir FYI Please verify there's still any issue.
If yes, we'd care with the next major update to LXQt 0.14.0?
This bug got lost in my TODO list, sorry.
Aha? I am amazed to see such an issue.
I myself is a XFCE + LXQt user during my working hours and never meet it. I will look into it recently.
Well, this bug is reported against fc23 packages and Fedora 23 is EOL. No idea if this issue is still reproducible with F28 or F29 as currently in active maintenance.
Further, I am not sure what component is to blame exactly. All those referenced bugs are fixed.
All in all, my opinion tends to close here with unknown reason.
Means: Maybe close with EOL or WORKSFORME.
As a LXQt + XFCE daily user I confirm install LXQt and XFCE in parallel in Fedora 29 works fine for me for a long time already.
I also checked the auto login scenario and this no longer happens to me (well, I am running on the newly built LXQt 0.14.0 from my own copr when I check auto login).
So assuming this is fixed somewhere before this is assigned to me.
Feel free to re-open with a clear reproducing step if this still happens.
