After an adventurous, frustrating, but educational Ubuntu minimal install. I have managed to surrect an operational Gui-desktop.
The successful method involved me selecting 2 package bundles upon installation :-
By memory: "lubuntu-desktop" and "LXDE".
I now have the option (at gui login) to initiate either of these 2 'desktops'.
I understand the differences between the 2, however I selected BOTH of them as a safety-attempt (after my many previous failures).
I would now like to remove the "lubuntu-desktop" package and all it may have required additionally (dependencies). I DO NOT however, wish to remove the "lxde" package, as logging into it feels lighter and snappier than "lubuntu" does.
How do I accomplish this, you gurus! - help.
Not in the mood to break anything.
(Side note - if you're curious as to why I need to - the short answer is HDD space - I am limited to 4.5GBs for this installation).
I acknowledge that some of the packages are inter-dependent, but would like to delete those I can).
Hopefully, I can wean my family unto linux.
