I managed an in-place "upgrade" from ubuntu to xubuntu by uninstalling 
ubuntu-desktop package and installed xubuntu-desktop. I think that's all 
I had to do, but I also uninstalled some compiz stuff and changed 
desktop "manager" s/w because I had a slow machine with limited graphics 
capability.  There are articles about how to switch desktops or flavours 
of ubuntu.  Good luck!

Obviously backup first, in case it doesn't work!
