    Install start x without internet

    How do you install start x on ubuntu server without internet connection from a flashdrive using sudo commands. Can you give me a link to the xinit download file and the list of commands.

    You will need to use dpkg

    Code:
    dpkg -i packagename.deb
    apt-get is for installing things from a repository

    Did you maybe type a number 1 instead of the lower case letter i?

    Code:
     dpkg -i packagename.deb
    USB drives will usually auto mount under the /media directory so you will need to look there

    FYI you will need MUCH more than just the xinit package to start an X session if you are beginning from the standard Ubuntu Server install
