    I want to install minimal version of some distro for vmware.
    I only intend to use gedit, terminal, putty and chromium. Copy paste and resize should work.

    I had installed minimal ubuntu but on installing gnome-core all usual bloat was installed. With any other linux distro or xfce in ubuntu copy/paste/resize does not work properly.

    Any ideas for any version of linux or how to get minimal gnome ?

    Have you considered to install a xfce desktop instead of gnome?

    As you want minimal-gnome in virtual-machine with any distro then you can follow link

    Then after install the gedit,putty and chromium separately.I beleive that terminal will exist there default.
