No, it's currently broken, see
If you want a quick workaround :
sudo cp /usr/share/xsessions/Lubuntu-Netbook.desktop
gksu leafpad /usr/share/xsessions/Lubuntu-Netbook2.desktop
Remove the space in Name: (Lubuntu Netbook by LubuntuNetbook).
Reboot, and start LubuntuNetbook session instead of Lubuntu Netbook

It should work until we have a real fix.

We keep lxdm by default, but you can still install lightdm, and set it
by default.
