so recently i was with a friend and we decided to build a system that can run all four Ubuntu based operating systems. the problem is we have no idea how to install everything besides Ubuntu and i was wondering if i could have help with this.
thanks.

sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop


sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop

and so on.

At the end you will have a number of desktops to choose from at the login screen.

Yes. By 'copy' you do mean install, right?

Why don't you consider installing Buntus on different partitions? Instead of choosing "Desktop" from Login Screen you will be doing so from Grub Menu. Moreover if you install all the desktops then there will be, for instance, three or four file-managers... and things could get messy. About 10GB-20GB of HDD partitions should be enough.

My two cents...
