"Execute in Terminal" doesn't work by default

pcmanfm (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

If I doubleclick a executable, PCManFM comes up with a dialog:
Execute Execute in Terminal Open Cancel

If I click Execute in Terminal, nothing happens.
I'm able to fix this by going to preferences/advanced
and adding this to the part before %s:

By default, the PCManFM should be configured to work with lxterminal.
Fixing this bug would mean that I wouldn't have to configure it myself before it works, on a new lubuntu install.

If xterm is installed, and selected as the choice of alternative terminal emulator, PCManFM works ok, but this isn't really likely at all, it's unlikely it is installed and configured.
