Proposed changes to lubuntu-desktop
I'd like to propose some changes to the lubuntu-desktop package. This is
primarily meant to the developers, but other users may be interested.
The point of Lubuntu & LXDE is to make a very lightweight desktop to end
users. This proposal would 1) make many of the dependencies as
recommends and 2) add lighter / better alternatives. This would in the
end make the installation more flexible. Inspiration for this came from
the xubuntu-desktop package.
The following recommendations are packages that aren't necessary for the
overall usability of Lubuntu: on a normal installation, all packages
marked as recommended are installed.
Package list (dep > rec):
abiword / libreoffice-writer
chromium-browser / midori
evince / mupdf / xpdf
file-roller / xarchiver
gnumeric / libreoffice-calc
