@oops, Can't say that I blame you. I actually use minimal as a base from which to build custom MX installs. :crossfingers:

@manyroads
" I actually use minimal as a base from which to build custom MX installs"
It's a good idea

Maybe apt-notifier.py can be removed too ? (with synaptic and MXPI)

Have you tried running the minimal without that package? Do things still work?

Re:
No I have not tested, but to save 85.7 MiB more memory : chmod -x /usr/bin/apt-notifier.py # at least, should work.

FYI: I have tested to remove apt-notifier.py into a VM MX18x32 and that"s work.

Hi manyroads,
I'm aware of that. :) Can I use your script to create my own personal iso?
Thanks
