    Code:
    sudo service lightdm start
    Should start the Ubuntu GUI, if you have it.

    Why did you do no-install-recommends, by the way?
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.

    --no-install-recomends ubuntu-desktop will not work on 11.10.
    So you have to install desktop using :
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

    So you have to install desktop using :
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
    Maybe it helps to purge, update-upgrade and reinstall
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge ubuntu-desktop
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    Code:
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

    Exactly, using this on ubuntu-desktop will mean you'll miss out on a huge number of packages. Basically you'll miss out on everything with a green diamond on this list. A lot of that stuff is pretty essential.

    If you want a lightweight Gnome desktop I'd suggest installing:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xorg lightdm gnome-core gnome-themes
    Then:
    Code:
    sudo service lightdm start
