View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installing ubuntu-desktop without upgrades

January 31st, 2011, 09:53 PM
I know it is possible to install a Ubuntu Server Edition and later on 'upgrade' it to a desktop edition by doing

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktopBut, as I understood it, this installs apps like OpenOffice and such too... Now, is it possible to install the ubuntu-desktop-GUI (so, actually GNOME) without installing all of the unwanted apps

Apps I actually need are pulseaudio, transmission and samba, which I prefer to install separately.
