After many years running ubuntu on my IBM R50 laptop and IBM NetVista desktop, I decided that I needed to move toward something that requires less machine. So far, I feel that lubuntu is my answer.

After using lubuntu since the 11.10 release came out, I only have two issues that are bugging me about this ubuntu variant. The first and probably the simplest, is that I cannot find a way to have the NumLock on when I log in. (To be honest, I haven't spent much time trying to find an answer.)

The second, is that I REALLY would like to change the background of the login screen to the boot splash screen, which is a lot more pleasant to my eyes. Also, I would really like to minimize, or eliminate, the "session" bar at the bottom of the login screen.
