    Cool Add GUI to v9.1 ?

    Hi

    I inherited a v9.1 Ubuntu vm which is used to run bugzilla. This is a command line only OS. While trying to solve another program i ran up ubuntu-9.10-desktop-amd64.iso

    I guess this means the "server" edition was installed ?

    => Is it possible to add the GUI to en existing installation, or this requires a fresh install of the OS ?

    Thanks

    It is possible to add a GUI to a CLI-only installation, with something like this:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
    Doing so with 9.10, although not impossible, might have its challenges, since it's past its "use by" date (see here). You always have the option of installing a newer version: don't forget to make backups of important data first!

    Thanks

    Can you comment if Ubuntu hasa concept of an upgrade or is it always a fresh install ?
