Ubuntu 17.04 minimal Lubuntu install

Lubuntu is already pretty lightweight but still comes with a lot of applications i don't need. I need a machine that is pretty clean, with just the bare bones with GUI capabilities.

Start with netinstall iso, do text based install with minimal options, then do:

$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt upgrade
$ sudo tasksel install lubuntu-core
$ sudo reboot

Add browser, I like Chromium, install it like:
$ sudo apt install chromium-browser

Light Docker Settings is not working on using light install, so let us fix it, do:
$ sudo apt install python-gi

I like "Customize Look and Feel" (lxappearance) for adjusting LXDE, to install, do:
$ sudo apt install lxappearance

Additional packages to install, do:
$ sudo apt install xfonts-terminus
