    Re: uninstall almost everything

    sudo apt-get clean
    sudo apt-get autoclean
    sudo apt-get autoremove

    that makes some cleaning room only; so either:
    - uninstall (with synaptic) unnneeded app(s)
    - set a / partition that feet your needs : use gparted from a livecd/liveusb

    What do you consider "everything" to be?

    Re: uninstall almost everything

    I think it is much easier to do it this way:

    Backup your personal files (documents, pictures, video-clips) and possibly configuration and data files for firefox and thunderbird (including bookmarks and mailboxes).

    Then wipe your system and start from the ubuntu mini iso file. Then add what you need instead of removing what you don't need.
