View Full Version : [ubuntu] Desktop for Server 9.04

Does Server 9.04 install from a GUI and does it start up and run using a GUI?

No, the server version of Ubuntu only installs a command-line setup. Of course you can add some desktop yourself, but if you plan to use the machine for desktop tasks and not just run a server then you might want to install the desktop version instead and then just install the servers you want. That way you'll have a working desktop straight from the install (and adding the server apps is really easy anyway).

I agree with mcduck install the desktop and add whatever you need. I am running 3 servers at work with the desktop edition and added what I needed with no problems.
