    Those Ubuntu packages provide different GUIs.

    To my knowledge, ubuntu-desktop provides the Unity GUI, xubuntu-desktop the Xfce GUI, kubuntu-desktop the KDE GUI, etc.

    What are your specific needs in a GUI?

    A CLI browser should be fine for that. Have a look. There are a fair few of them.
