LXQt desktop installation problem (SOLVED)
I am installing the LXQt desktop in an Arch machine running in Oracle VirtualBox 6.0.10 on an Ubuntu 16.04 host.

I began with a headless Arch installation I have been running for months.

I installed the LXQt package from the Arch repository.
then the xorg.xinit package
then the xorg-panel package
then the xorg-server package
the then VMware SGVA video driver

I added the code:  "exec startlxqt" to the .xinitrc file in /etc/X11/xinit  and then copied it to my home directory, changed owner and group to me, and made it executable.

When I boot up and log in and enter startx, I get the LXQt desktop, but it contains no writing, no words, nothing but blank spaces. Programs will open but there is no writing in them either.

What am I missing?
