Bug Description

[Impact]

Without this change, LibreOffice does not correctly use the Breeze theme, which is needed for consistency with the rest of the Lubuntu, LXQt-based desktop. At times, it is even hard to use because of the inconsistent theming which can hide buttons at times.

[Test Case]

Update to the version of LibreOffice with this patch and open it on a Lubuntu 18.10 installation. It should use the Breeze theming rather than the stock GTK theming on startup.

[Regression Potential]

Little to none. If for some reason the criteria that is used to check for the LXQt desktop no longer works, which is unlikely in a stable release, this will no longer work.

[Other Info]

I submitted these upstream (as my first patches \o/):

Simon, I'm not sure what the issue was (and I'm no good with aesthetics), but I SEE NO CHANGE.

When this lp.bug hit my inbox I looked for what your issue was, and the only thing I saw was black boxes kept being drawn when you hovered over buttons, eg. if I went into print-preview, if you move the mouse over 'close preview' a dark box starts flashing slightly-low-left over the close-preview button and makes it hard to read. I assumed this was what this bug was about, as it occurs elsewhere too. This 'flaw' (or issue) appears to have not been altered.

I could be complete wrong - feel free [as always] to ping me (irc, etc). I saw no adverse effects, but it didn't fix what I hoped it would (which could be a different thing...) ps: if what I've described is something else & needs a lp.bug raised - just tell me.

my appearance settings if needed (uploaded this as only place where I saw breeze)

My LXQt theme is "Lubuntu Arc"

ps: i've taken quite a few screenshots before & after change so I could look for differences, I can upload if desired, but I didn't see anything of value.
