Install Ubuntu Desktop environment for old PC

Ubuntu comes by default with its defult Desktop GUI enviremnet that will can be very heavy for an old PC, therefore I wold install only Ubuntu server and manually install a light Desktop environment

Type the following command at the Terminal Command Box:

sudo apt-get update

to install XFCE :

sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop


alternatively, you can also try LXDE instead of XFCE by the following command:

sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop


After the above installation you need to reboot your PC
