I feel like pointing you people at the latest Manjaro LXQt Minimal OpenRC ISO:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/manjaro-testing/files/minimal/lxqt-minimal/16.03/
x86_64 version is already uploaded on Sourceforge, i686 version seems to follow in some minutes.
I'm using this spin for several months and have rarely any problems.
Only one known issue for me: KWrtite .desktop file needs to be edited -> Exec=kwrite %f
Otherwise it won't open text files in the file manger.

Thx eugen.

This issue was introduced with a frameworks update and is actually a bug in pcman-fm.

Until resolved, I included gtk based editor.

Definitely the spin feels more solid than previous one I tested before. Thanks.

Concerning LXQt Minimal OpenRC 16.03: there is a typo in /etc/sddm.conf
[Theme]
Current=maledives

should be
Current=maldives
because the folder name is /usr/share/sddm/themes/maldives (and also how the islands are spelled in English).
