LXDE equivalent to gnome-open


How do I create a location launcher for the LXDE desktop using only lxde-specific software? (I want to prepare for the time when gnome 2 will no longer be available; kde, gnome3 or xfce are all horrible and useless, but LXDE has promise). I installed lxshortcut and the command

lxshortcut -o ~/Desktop/home.desktop

will produce a launcher, which with the command "gnome-open /home<user>" will open my home folder. Is there a command for pcmanfm that does the same? Or does lxde rely on gnome (which would be bad)?
