[ubuntu] Using Minimal Install CD to make VM for Java

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – My aim is to create a very small VM in Parallels Desktop on my Mac containing Ubuntu. I've decided to start with the Minimal CD, making reference to a brief tutorial. The purpose of the VM is to run Java for the purposes of using Sweet Home 3D, as I don't want to install Java on my host OS (OS X "Mountain Lion"). The tutorial linked above involves installing the following once the Minimal install is complete: xorg xterm gdm icewm menu firefox gksu synaptic But that's it. Can anyone tell me which additional packages (if any) I'll need to install to make Java and Sweet Home (Hardware)
