XFCE: Install a lighter weight version of XFCE in Ubuntu 13.04

Default XFCE 4 install in Ubuntu comes with a lot of applications that I don't need. So I always install from alternate method using mini.iso to have a bare bones system and yet usable. I have been using LXDE for a while but I think it is time to experiment with XFCE. From a minimal install of Ubuntu, adding XFCE with minimal applications is a breeze, like:

$: sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends xubuntu-desktop
