I have Ubuntu as a VM, and I just installed Lubuntu

sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop

and now I can boot into this Desktop Enviroment. But, my question is... is this really Lubuntu? Should I just download and install Lubuntu? I want the lightest version possible.

To keep your distribution in a VM light we should not install the lubuntu-desktop in addition to Ubuntu/Unity:

  • all the default Ubuntu applications, GNOME, and more will still be there

  • they need virtual hard disk space

  • and they will need regular security updates.

So no, you can easily run the Lubuntu desktop on top of Ubuntu/Unity but this will not be the same lean installation you will have after installing Lubuntu.
