Yes, the Openbox session should be avaible. Just for clarity, the Openbox 
session is not part of lubuntu-default-settings [1], it is part of the package 
openbox for the people who want to run a Openbox desktop, for example with 
tint2 or even without panel.

The QLubuntu session is meant as a preview for LXQt, which won't happen before 
14.10 - but as it doesn't works I'm quite sure, that just the session is 
installed but not PCManFM-Qt, LXPanel-Qt and so on. To be honest, I did not 
check why the other sessions are not running at all, I think the important 
parts should be installed. That includes, for example, LXLauncher which is 
part of the netbook session.

To make it short, my proposal:

 * keep Openbox session as it is, or move it to another package (like openbox-
desktop or openbox-session), which depends on openbox.
 * discard the sessions Netbook, Nexus7 and LXGames or move it into other 
packages with proper dependencies so that they are installabe AND working. We 
don't need non-functional sessions that are only to confuse users that are not 
familiar with that stuff
 * move QLubuntu into another package, like qlubuntu-desktop or qlubuntu-
session or whatever for early adopters

Of course I'm willing to help fixing that stuff. I think it's not too late for 
Trusty, as this is kind of bug fixing?
