Re: Minimal Install issue in Wiki


Hi Phill,

You're welcome! I think it's not your fault and I'm very happy to be a part
of the team :).

Hi Jared,

I agree with you too. Actually "sudo apt-get install
--no-install-recommends lubuntu-desktop" is the command I always use
because I don't have time to remove the applications I don't use (like
ace-of-penguins game, gnome-mplayer...).

Hi all,

I think we should give some explaintions in the wiki. If reader wants a
full Lubuntu desktop, just use "sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop", if
he/she wants a minimal desktop and then add new applications by
him/herself, so just use "sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends
