View Full Version : [ubuntu] what pakages are need to install gnome on server edition

April 21st, 2009, 06:27 PM
I am undertaking a little project that will involve me installing Ubuntu 8.10 server edition on a HP ML115 G5 server, and I will need a GUI. But here is that catch, NO INTERNET. So I was wondering what packages I should download to have a up and running Gnome GUI or even a XFCE. Thanks for any help in advance ;)

Google: install gnome server, found this page, no waiting:

quick version:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
sudo apt-get install gdm
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

All that should be available on the normal desktop cd but I don't know whats on the server cd.
