    Minimal X with only few applications


    how can I build me ubuntu so that I get the following abilities:

    1) Login with username and password
    2) multiuser in X so that I can change user without loggin other one out.
    3) No desktop, no start menu etc. but only 3 or 4 graphical applications between which I can switch (e.g. by keyboard shorcut)
    4) All applications run in fullscreen mode (maybe forced)

    Thanks in advance

    You should start with a CLI only install, and then hand pick what you want/ need.

    Modest Spec or Barebones Installation of Ubuntu
    Live long and prosper.
    And use lotsa Linux, BSD, and Emacs.
