Goin this route, you're likely to wind up installing a lot more stuff than you think to get everything you'll likely want for a reasonably useable desktop.

Might be easier to just go ahead and install the Ubuntu desktop system and then install XFCE4. You'll have a choice to use either XFCE4 or gnome, just select the one you want.

If you just don't even want gnome on your system as an option, just uninstall it one the XFCE4 is installed.

Might save you a lot of grief and time.

All you need to do is an apt-get install xfce4 and resolve the deps and you're ready to roll. Didn't take me long at all. I've always loved XFCE and Ubuntu makes it real easy to install and use--not to mention the plugin base is enormous!

Just search for gnome and remove packages you don't want without removing other dependencies you shouldnt. You'll have to do a little figuring out here as going through every single package to remove would take too long. You'll be fine, just take some care in doing it.

Do NOT remove GTK2. That is the GUI framework for MANY applications. What are you talking about rohandhruva?

caladbolg : When probing about a bit on irc, the maker of kde for ubuntu asked me to remove gtk 2 to completely remove gnome. true, it is the gui framework of MANY packages, and hence, at that time too, i didnt remove gtk. i was just passing the knowledge, but i warned too
