You may be able to get by with running:
which will install hard dependencies but NOT "recommended" packages. I'm not sure if Unity, Brasero et al are dependencies or merely recommended packages.
sudo apt-get install gnome-session-fallback --no-recommends
I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
