Hello. I am using Kubuntu basically and would like to know what are the minimum packages to install to get a GNOME login. Like if I install ubuntu-desktop it brings in a whole lot of applications like GNOME's email client, movie player etc etc which I don't want. I just want to have a GNOME login to use OpenOffice from GNOME environment (because ibus is not fully integrated into KDE yet).
