Default vim without gvim?

I've been using vi and clones since around 1984, so I'm pretty much
married to them. I've just started dabbling with a pure xubuntu
install, and found that my nave addition of vim also pulled in a huge
bunch of other packages, including gnome libraries that I'd prefer to
not have.

I don't really want a GUI editor, as I learned vim without a mouse and
consider the mouse a hindrance for almost everything except menus and
explicily graphical chores.

Is there a keyboard-only vim package, or will I have to roll my own?

I'm not sure what you've done there. It would seem you've installed
vim-gnome... which is the gui version. If you'd installed vim [7.2]
you'd have got what you wanted. nvi if you want a pure vi version.

You both are right. I reinstalled 12.04 and found that any of
{vim-tiny, vim, vim-nox} would leave out the GUI stuff. Must have
been a brain fart. I opted for vim-nox. If I want a GUI, I might try
vim-gtk since there are already GTK libraries installed on the system.
