Installing Xubuntu desktop on your ubuntu system

If you have not never heard about Xubuntu before then let me clarify that Xubuntu is one flavor of Ubuntu having Xfce  as default desktop environment.
Xfce is lightweight dsktop environment for Unix-like systems..

Click here to know more about Xfce.  

Now if you want faster system then you should seriously try Xfce desktop environment. To use it you can either download live CD of Xubuntu OS from here or you can add Xfce /Xubuntu desktop environment on your current Ubuntu system also....and it will not overwrite your current desktop environment like Unity means you can use any of them.

Now to install open terminal and type in following commands in terminal:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop

Now to use Xfce/Xubuntu environment logout from your current session and at the login screen choose Xfce/Xubuntu from the list of available desktop environments and login again....

You can uninstall Xubuntu-desktop anytime using following command:

sudo apt-get remove xubuntu-desktop.
