Ubuntu: How to install a minimal Xfce4 GUI on Ubuntu Server 16.04?


I'm building a NAS for my home with Ubuntu Server 16.04.

I would like to know what is the best way to install a very minimal Xfce4 graphical user interface on it in order to complete some frequent tasks on my server easily without using the CLI.

I thought to give the following command:

sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends xorg xterm xubuntu-desktop xubuntu-icon-theme menu gksu xfwm4-themes xfce4-terminal xfce4-taskmanager xfce4-datetime-plugin xfce4-power-manager xfce4-xkb-plugin xfce4-indicator-plugin xfce4-volumed firefox  

Is that correct? Is there anything I forget or something unnecessary?


apt-get install xfce4. It work for me.


if you try with

 sudo apt-get install xfce4 --no-install-recommends  

and you will get a minimal instalation for ubuntu desktop xfce4

good luck
