It is the same. Just not themed.

But I guess if you don't want help, then this link or even this link is useless to you, and giving you the name of the theme " Ambiance " wouldn't help any.

I didn't see your laptop on there, my apologies. I gave you advice pertaining to your current setup after I agreed with the others about building up. Most of my post was pertaining to what you could remove. If you're going to be rude, you can take your questions elsewhere.

I'm really not sure what you're looking for. You asked how to slim down your install and I feel your question was answered by everyone here.

Also, in regards to Gnome2, it all depends on your theme as Shrak said... Just google Gnome 2 themes.

Cute; people try to provide an alternative to building down which can be cumbersome. Building up is exactly what you want, but you are being arrogant toward those trying to lead the way. Let me depict the packages in those two screenshots, in text form for you:
Base (Linux kernel, and required packages for boot and devices)
X11, Gnome2(Mate)

Packages not in the first screenshot that are in the second:
Conky
Chrome
Gnome2-theme-ambiance

3 packages (1 potentially not a package depending on your distro, but readily available from gnome-look or otherwise) make up the difference between those two setups, graphically. So, let's see "apt-get purge --remove {list of ~200 packages}" vs "apt-get install {3 packages}" Which is more simple to you? Which makes more sense? I used to do exactly what you are now. I was misinformed and used to doing things the "Windows way" I installed Ubuntu and it came with software I didn't use so I removed the software I didn't like and put what I did instead. Now I do things the Linux way - I start as simple as I can and install just what I want. Instead of having ~1200 packages on first boot I have around 300, and instead of cutting down 600 packages or more and reinstalling 100-150 alternatives, I simply install 400 packages that I want (Most of which are dependencies I really only uninstall ~100 packages and their dependencies and reinstall 10-20 with their dependencies)
You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make a horse drink.

Oh, I'm sorry I missed the icon theme, I don't know it off the top of my head, but it makes it 4 packages.


Oh hey look, a screenshot of someone running modern Mate (Gnome2) with the Ambiance theme (the "Ubuntu interface" as you call it)

http://mate-look.blogspot.com/2012/05/light-theme-ambiance-and-radiance-for.html

Yes, I realize this post is quite rude, but you've chosen to badger and belittle people offering a helping hand. I've chosen to return the favor, while still trying to be helpful.

So you ask for advice, then when multiple people tell you to do the same thing, you refuse to listen? rolleyes.gif

Either do it the way EVERYONE has suggested (which is the best way) or start googling/ apt-cache search(ing) to see what they all do and remove them.
And if you decide to listen and build up, you can use the Ubuntu minimal CD instead of debian if your prefer.

As has been stated multiple times, you're going backwards. It's not even open for debate, so stop trying to argue.

If you don't want good advice and just need to use apt-get remove and dpkg --purge on a list of packages where only you can tell if you want or not, what did you need to make a thread for????

If you go forward that way, given your lack of experience, you're going to end up removing something and one day you'll have a strange or broken system. Don't expect anyone to read through that massive list and check off yes or no for you. So, as was correctly said, the only sensible way to get a minimal install with what you need on top, is to start with a minimal install and add what you need on top. rolleyes.gif

I think a lot of us have learned this the hard way, sounds like you need to as well. thumb.gif good luck

You don't really get to know Linux until you've nuked a couple of installs and done a couple of minimals
