how can I change ubuntu 9.10 to xubuntu 9.10 with an aptitude command?

Asked by Dan Smith on 2010-01-21

I've got ubuntu 9.10 installed on an old machine, but I want to downshift it to xubuntu 9.10. Somewhere or other I read a post that gave an aptitude command that will accomplish that without using several other steps, but I misplaced it. Does anybody know what that is?

Please use following command in terminal

> sudo tasksel install xubuntu-desktop -t

During login change default shell.
