No, grub is needed even if your only OS is Linux. Besides selecting the OS to boot, it also gives you the options to boot to Recovery Mode for example, or select any kernel you want in case you have installed more than one on your system. Grub is the system's bootloader. It is mandatory.

MATE-Tweak, built into the default installation of Ubuntu MATE, has an option to enable these indicators Under Interface, check the box Enable keyboard LED And now you have three key lock icons in your indicator panel - one for each key.

I used the good old Unity Tweak Tool, went to Appearance > Theme > Theme, chose Ambiance, and then clicked on Icons and chose ubuntu-mono-dark and my Unity looked like the way it always had again.

With those installed it should work. Edit: I've now tried this myself on Ubuntu 16.04 (i386), and it proved to not be sufficient. The package fcitx-table-cangjie is installed as part of ...
