Oh, so there is no way to only sometimes launch it maximized, but the rest of the time at a smaller size, right? Thanks!

comment How to disable the touchpad?
The ids might slide if you plug another device (like a USB mouse), so don't put that line in your .bashrc or you might become unable to use your keyboard (in such a case, just remove the new USB device and reboot).

comment Log in immediately following successful fingerprint scan, rather than having to hit button
Ah yes I think I have this problem at reboot too! (I only rebooted once since I installed on my new Thinkpad so I didn't remember that right away) Would you mind adding these details to the question's body, as comments get deleted often? Thanks!

comment Log in immediately following successful fingerprint scan, rather than having to hit button
Strangely I am using 15.10 (on Thinkpad) and I don't have to hit any button: 1) I press CTRL+ALT+L to lock my session 2) I swipe my right index 3) My desktop shows up immediately. What is your hardware?
