View Full Version : [ubuntu] how to install x on ubuntu server

March 10th, 2009, 10:49 PM
Hi all Ubuntu fans!

I'm almost new in unix/linux systems. I have a 7.1 server edition installed and configured well.
Now I want to install X graphical interface on this machine.
(because I need to create some virtual machine with windows system, I've planned to use vmware)

I kindly ask help from somebody who can give me a short guide how to do.

Thank you in advance,

I assume you want to run Gnome--ubuntu-desktop.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop gdm
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start
