I am not running Lubuntu. 

I'll check out the size requirement of 

apt-get install lubuntu-default-settings (limited HD=512MB)

I did  see mention in an Arch linux forum about using
startlxde to solve the same issue.  The mention was to put it in,

I'm not sure if the following is Arch specific though, because I have
never seen "ck-launch-session startlxde" syntax in Debian/Ubuntu before.

        Quote: http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/LXDE
        "To use startx you will need to define LXDE in your ~/.xinitrc
        exec ck-launch-session startlxde
        This will launch LXDE with HAL support that provides the ability
        to restart or shutdown your computer from the logout dialog."
