Ubuntu: Installing Unity on a 13.04 mini install without other packages



Question:

I'm installing using this tutorial. It's the mini version of Ubuntu designed to be built as you go along, and it doesn't come with a GUI. I have tried to install Unity, but it comes with many other packages I don't want, such as Thunderbolt and Libre Office. Is there a way to just install Unity?


Solution:1

The dependencies for Unity are listed on this page for the ubuntu-desktop package. Dependencies can be circumvented during installation with these commands:

sudo apt-get --no-install-recommends install   

or

sudo aptitude --without-recommends install  

Although, these will end up installing some recommends; apt-get installing the most dependencies it seems. You can find a reference on --no-install-recommends here.
