Is there a way to enable ubiquitous emacs keybindings in Lubuntu?

I've seen solutions for Ubuntu and Xubuntu, such as emacs keybindings in ubuntu 12.04, but I haven't found one for Lubuntu.

On my Lubuntu 14.04, the c-space keybinding seemed to be disabled in emacs. For this particular case you may find solutions in

ibus breaks emacs and eclipse control-space keybinding.

The keybinding seems to be used by ibus instead. You may disable this by adding the line

ibus exit

to your ~/.config/lxsession/Lubuntu/autostart.
