    imagine that... after one minute....

    Anyway try giving some hardware informaiton specifically what graphics card do you have and is it working?
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
    or
    sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop
    if you want someting light try one of the windows manager (e.g. IceWM, Openbox) instead of full 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

    Maybe you should install LXDE, which has a much smaller foot-print, but anyway, I suggest that you purge what was installed with the command in your first post.

    Perhaps someone is misinterpreting what "GUI" means to you. The link you provided specifically refers to ubuntu-desktop, yet you say you don't want ubuntu desktop, but "GUI".

    Perhaps you could explain that -- without the extended ellipses and multiple question marks.

    ^^^This.

    I am also confused as to what the OP wants. After all, Webmin is a "GUI".

    Kind regards

    perhaps it would be better if they want a GUI to server to use a distribution such a Zentyal which is server based on 10.04 with a GUI yet not a desktop: http://www.zentyal.com/
    http://www.zentyal.com/en/server/download/

    Is perhaps this what is required here?

    The desktop environments suggested ARE GUIs.

    You were given instructions on how to start them from the command line after installing them. Did you do that?

    Do you want the GUI on the console, or do you want it at remote login from another computer, like for example
    Code:
    ssh -X
    or both?
