Bug#833268: task-lxde-desktop: LXDE desktop does not include a web browser

Package: task-lxde-desktop
Version: 3.31+deb8u1
Severity: important
X-Debbugs-CC: pkg-maintainers@lists.alioth.debian.org
Control: clone -1 -2 -3
Control: retitle -2 LXDE: screenshot key bound to launch gnome-screenshot, no dependency
Control: severity -2 normal
Control: retitle -3 LXDE: poor text wrapping for Wastebasket icon in default install
Control: severity -3 minor

I've just installed an LXDE desktop via task-lxde-desktop/the LXDE d-i
jessie LXDE spin CD1 with no networking during install.

The resulting desktop does not have a graphical web browser installed.
www-browser is being provided by w3m. Clicking on the web browser in
LXDE results in a pop-up

	"invalid desktop entry file: '/usr/share/applications/lxde-x-www-browser.desktop'

I discovered this because I noticed that the desktop had one icon on it
labelled "Wastebasket" but the text was wrapped on the last character, e.g.
"Wastebaske\nt". I wanted to report this as an unfortunate wrapping.

So I tried to take a screenshot by hitting "print screen". This resulted in a
pop up complaining that gnome-screenshot did not exist. I would argue this
was a missing dependency of the LXDE desktop task if it's bound to the print
screen key by default.

So I thought I'd do a quick web search to find an alternative way or package
to install to take a screenshot of the desktop, hence I clicked on the web
browser icon and discovered the above.

The above are all visible here:
