    Removing Libre Office from 23.10 and upgrading to v24.04 Questions

    I was using version 22.04 LTS but wanted to try the latest version. I notice it didn't offer a minimal install like 22.04. Don't really need games or libre office. Can they be safely removed without issue? Also will 23.10 allow me to upgrade to the new 24.04 LTS when it comes out next year?

      there should have been a 'minimal' option in the installer

      Souper seekrit tip, though.
      Since the installer essentially is blasting a full OS image to disk, the Minimal option actually removes packages afterwards. There is a list on the ISO that has the stuff to remove.
      Look in /casper/filesystem.manifest-minimal-remove

      copy that file somewhere, edit it if desired after looking it over.

      then sudo apt-get remove $(cat /path/to/the/file-name)​ *should* remove all the stuff that the minimal option would remove after an install.
