I want to install a 64bit version of Linux Mint 11 LXDE. It seems as though I should be able to easily install it on top of ubuntu-minimal if I knew the correct meta package(s).
- Install ubuntu-minimal x64
- Add linux mint repos to sources.list
- Install linux mint LXDE meta package with ignore recommendations (similar to ubuntu-desktop)
I've done this before with ubuntu-desktop and lubuntu-desktop.
How can I get a list of meta-packages? Or a package dependency tree?
EDIT: seems there is some confusion. "Linux Mint 11 LXDE" is a distro in itself. http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=1793
It's the lubuntu to Linux Mint. I am trying to replicate this distribution by installing it on top of ubuntu-minimal. Which is way different than installing LXDE on top of either linux mint or ubuntu.
Update: I tried to take all the packages marked as manual in Linux Mint 32 and installed them on ubuntu-minimal. This seemed to work fine, and I seem to have a Linux Mint install except now upstarts now hangs at "Checking Battery Status", which seems to be a common issue that people have when upgrading. It looks like I should also disable fglrx to see if it fixes it. In any case, I've since then tried using arch linux, but it's alot more work and I'm not sure I am going to stick with it.
