Regarding lxsession edit, I agree with you: I'm still fighting to
understand it. (I'm a Lubuntu user since 11.10)

However, some other folks seems to have got how it works:

"Though Lubuntu is yet to get an LXDE control center like PCLinuxOS
LXDE or ROSA and the settings items are scattered through Menu ->
Preferences. Another interesting addition I saw is the Default
applications for LXSession entry in Preferences. Earlier adding any
program to autostart in LXDE would mean hitting the terminal. But, now
with this option, adding programs to autostart (from Running or
Launching applications and/or directly adding an entry to autostart)
has become a lot easier. Further, settings give options of changing
default DE, adding Gnome Dbus and/or setting up Lubuntu in laptop
mode. I like Lubuntu more than any of the previous versions that I
have used."

Well, that's the blogger opinion... not mine though.

Just wanted to share a different point of view.
