lubuntu-desktop is just a metapackage and doesn't actually contain
anything itself.  You should be able to remove it without affecting
much.  You can try a dry run with --simulate in apt-get

	sudo apt-get --simulate remove evince

and that will show you what will get changed without actually changing it.
