I am using Ubuntu Server 10.10 in a VirtualBox. I need to install a single GUI program (RubyMine) on it.
I checked out installing
apt-get, and it wants me to install 430 new packages (including OpenOffice). I installed the server in the first place to keep the install as clean as possible!
How do I do a minimal install of (all packages needed) to run that single GUI program?
I created a file
/etc/apt/apt.conf and added the following:
APT::Install-Recommends "0"; APT::Install-Suggests "0";
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop still says:
0 upgraded, 430 newly installed, 1 to remove and 9 not upgraded. Need to get 155MB of archives. After this operation, 542MB of additional disk space will be used. Do you want to continue [Y/n]? n
