Ubuntu 16.04 works like a gem for me, beside Unity which I find inefficient.
So when trying Xubuntu 16.04, I found that my VPN "Private Internet Access" application didn't work with it, while it worked perfectly on Ubuntu 16.04.
I assumed it's because Xfce on Xubuntu might use different packages that have ill effect on the VPN application.
And yes, I do need the actual VPN application, it gives more security options then the OpenVPN application. Besides I tried to use OpenVPN instead of PIA on Xubuntu 16.04. It also didn't work. Searched for it on the net, no useful solutions found.
So my question is:
If I want Xfce4 on Ubuntu 16.04, but without any of the "XFCE4 Desktop Package" applications that aren't strictly necessary to run XFCE4 GUI as it would normally on Xubuntu.
Which packages would I need to install from the console?
