Disclaimer:

These are extreme memory tuning tips that might take some comfort away from your desktop. So make sure to have a backup and enough knowledge to undo those tuning tips.

Basic tuning by adjusting autostarted applications: If you installed a lot of applications some of the might put thereself into the autostart and will run everytime you fire up your computer (mostly in the background). If you don't want those applications to run at every start you can disable those by going to the menu -> preferences -> desktop session settings.

Advanced tuning by adjusting Lubuntus or LXDEs Autostart applications: Lubuntu and LXDE has some essential applications that will run everytime you start your system. These kind of programs manage your powersettings for your laptop or netbook or draw icons on the desktop. If you don't need these applications as you are using a desktop computer or simply don't need desktop icons you can disable those applications by editing the autostart script of the lubuntu session. This file needs root rights to be modified and is located under /etc/xdg/lxsession/Lubuntu/autostart.

Extreme tuning by adjusting the number of ttys(Notice: This only saves a few kBs of RAM): Lubuntu just as Ubuntu provides the user with 6 textconsoles besides the normal graphical user interface running ontop of Xorg. Normally you just don't need so much tty textconsoles and can disable them to save another bit of memory. To disable some ttys (leave at least one running for X crashes) you need to edit the configuration files in /etc/init/ttyX.conf (where X is the number of tty you want to edit). To edit them you need root privileges. You can than comment out the execute command at the bottom of each ttyX.conf.

So if you have gone through all this tuning tips you hopefully have saved some memory and have less memory consuming system up and running.
