    Server login trouble

    Good evening,

    I have installed ubuntu 12.10 server on my computer. I am very new to the server system and I am stuck on a screen and cannot get to the desktop of the server. I do not know what to do. Please try to help, I can provide further details if not needed. Pictures are below..

    The server edition does not come with a desktop GUI. It uses a command line interface. You can install one but it is not recommended. For what reasons did you install the server edition for?

    I installed the server edition for something like a vpn and also a file server. I do not have the server online as of now.

    There are several light server GUIs you could install.

    Looks like your in console, so yes you can install a desktop from there. My simple (starting point) desktop:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install -y lightdm gnome-terminal firefox synaptic && sudo apt-get install -y --no-install-recommends gnome-session-fallback nautilus
    But you can go lighter than this, just got to figure out what you want.

    That was done during the install process, unless you were not hooked up to the internet durning the install process.
