    You can by running the command
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop
    On my Kubuntu installation that will require a 476 Mb download though, so it's not much of a difference.

    First, do an update, before installing something that huge. Otherwise, there is the odd chance that the install can fail.

    There must be a much greater difference between Kubuntu and Xubuntu than Ubuntu and Xubuntu

    On my Ubuntu installation that will only require a 73.5 MB download. (I'm assuming you meant to report yours in MB, not Mb...)

    If you wanted to slim that down, you could instead

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xfce4
    That would only require a 15.4 MB download. (That's because it would only replace the Desktop Environment, and not the default applications. I'm guessing that's what you're going for, anyways.) But then, that wouldn't configure XFCE the way it is in Xubuntu by default, unless you also

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xubuntu-default-settings
    That would be an additional 14.6 MB download.
    Jane, stop this crazy thing!

    After installing either xfce4 or xubuntu-desktop, remember that you have to choose a session when you log onto your computer. The session will be a choice of stuff like KDE, Kubuntu, Xfce, Xubuntu, etc.
