View Full Version : [gnome] Need some help with installing gnome desktop environment on ubuntu 10.04

May 24th, 2011, 04:59 PM

I've just rented a dedicated server from www.leaseweb.com (http://www.leaseweb.com) and I'm having some minor problems with it and I need some quick help.

Its a clean install of Ubuntu 10.04 and I want to be able to use gnome desktop environment and connect to it with NX Client from my windows 7.

I have done the basics..

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
sudo apt-get install gnome-desktop-environment

I have done this installations a couple of times before and everytime it's been working for me.

I emailed their support about it as well.

They told me it should work by just doing these first steps, but since it didn't they asked to take a look at it. So they did.

I got this mail back from them:

It seemed that your server is missing some packages/services.

Therefore, I need to ask you first if you acknowledge the ability of
being charged with the additional support fee of 37,25 Euro per 15
minutes support?

I will never pay more for 15 minutes of support then I payed for the server thats for sure..

I was hoping someone could enlighten me. What could these packages/services be?
What can I try next?

Thank you so much in advance for your trouble..
