Here is a good place to start: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/minimal

However, 1.5g is not a realistic goal for Kubuntu in 2013, in my opinion. Most users today have hundreds of gigabytes (if not terabytes) so Ubuntu is designed to take advantage of modern hardware capabilities. 1gb is the recommended absolute minimum for a bare-bones text only (CLI) install according to: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/In...emRequirements

If you really only have 1.5gb hard drive then I recommend non-Ubuntu distros such as SliTaz or TinyCore. (Or upgrade your hard drive; they are very modestly priced these days.)
