I do not know how to do the following
I am new and need precise instructions.Then, add our preceding repository, and do this:
Install Ubuntu base system with Ubuntu Alternate installer CD, and only install a command line-based system (Server without all the internet services). Some user suggested that you can install xubuntu and remove xfce after installing LXDE. However, install from base system is recommended. Ask on Ubuntuforums if you got problems regarding to this. There are some related articles on the forum.
Only install the base system. Then, add our preceding repository, and do this:
Code: Select all
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install xorg lxde
sudo mkdir /usr/share/backgrounds
#The LXDE screen saver app requires that this directory exist or it returns annoying error messages.
There is a link to the page:
details minimal ubuntu desktop installation with screenshot. It is written there:

lxde is very cool. you need to add repo to install it. see http://wiki.lxde.org/en/Ubuntu
lxde recommends gdm, a huge monster apps that depends on other monster apps. use —without-recommends switch so that you wont install those monster.
first, put the lxde repo into /etc/apt/sources.list :
#$ sudo nano -w /etc/apt/sources.list
# then paste this line into it:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/lxde/ubuntu hardy main
#$ sudo aptitude update
#$ sudo aptitude install --without-recommends lxde
update: if you got problem from old lxde repo, make sure you remove the apps from that old repo first:
#first, remove apps from old repos
$ sudo aptitude purge lxde lxsession-lite lxappearance pcmanfm lxpanel
# then do the install
$ sudo aptitude install --without-recommends lxde
Could it be that this instruction is written for the version released many years ago, currently with support that has ended? Maybe now you need to install a little differently?
I installed Ubuntu server 32 bits version of Ubuntu 18.04 LTS Bionic Beaver. I installed in Windows 32 bits, in Virtualbox.
