Xubuntu Minimal Visual Tour
Take a tour and test the newly available Xubuntu Minimal desktop. Xubuntu Minimal will be available in April alongside Xubuntu 23.04, "Lunar Lobster".
Xubuntu Minimal provides a lighter-weight alternative to the full-size Xubuntu desktop. The core desktop experience allows you to build your very own version of Xubuntu with the tricky configuration already done for you. Scroll through the screenshots below to see Xubuntu Minimal in action. When you're done, download Xubuntu Minimal from
cdimage.ubuntu.com to test it for yourself! The Xubuntu Minimal desktop looks identical to the standard Xubuntu desktop. The application menu is very empty, featuring only the Accessories, Settings, and System categories. While browsing all applications (continued in the next two screenshots), you'll find only the essentials. The Mail Reader and Web Browser apps won't do much until you've added your own. So, fire up the Xfce Terminal and
apt install or
snap install your favorites.
NetworkManager is still included, so you can configure your network settings. The notification plugin is here, no loss of functionality. The PulseAudio plugin is emptier than normal, since there are no audio apps installed. Note: Xubuntu Minimal ships with PipeWire but is still controlled by the PulseAudio plugin. The clock is here to remind you of the time you saved while installing a much smaller Ubuntu flavor. The Settings Manager has a few less settings than normal, but is still fully functional. Here's the bottom half of your available settings.
No visual tour would be complete without a neofetch screenshot. You're welcome.
