    Software Selection Mistake

    Yup.. When I was I was at the Software Selection screen I'm pretty sure I made a mistake. I meant to select everything but 3d but when I pressed enter on Audio, the installer continued. So basically when I boot Ubuntu, I just get text. No desktop or anything. Advice? And please keep it simple because I'm a Linux-noob.

    You can install the desktop from the command prompt, type:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
    This will install all the packages needed for your desktop.

    Thanks! I'll try that soon. What would the commands be to install the rest of the software?

    It worked. I'm on Linux now but it's just regular old Ubuntu. Not the Ubuntu Studio theme. Where can this be located?

    EDIT: WAIT NVM. I GOT IT.
