Yes, although no official documentation mentions it (would be great to 
have an official "tde-lite" meta)

I run Squeeze but a similar method *should* work for Ubuntu, it uses 
apt. No guarantees it will work for you though!

I make a text list of the packages I actually want, e.g tdelist, then:

(apt-get update and install keyring first)

for i in $( cat path/to/tdelist ); do apt-get install $i; done

The list I use is posted at (will expire in 72 hours):

You could edit that and use it.

I always do anything like that with X closed.
