Install minimalist GUI on top of Debian Stretch netinstall

LXDE is pretty lightweight desktop environment. There are other lighter weight DEs out there mind you but for most practical purposes LXDE serves most of the modern x86 machines.

To install minimalist (just the core) LXDE on Debian Strech, do:

#: apt-get install lxde-core lightdm

Note:

  • This will also install a lighter version desktop manager LightDM
  • This is a pre-release version, it may change without notice.
