I think you are asking how to install the desktop version of Ubuntu now that you installed the server version? If that is the case log in and do

sudo apt-get update


sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

This will download a lot of stuff and install it. When it is done, restart your machine and you will have the desktop version of Ubuntu (with a few extra server stuff as well)

Follow the above post and it will work....

However, if you want to run KDE or xfce,, you might as well type

for KDE

sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop

for XFCE

sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop

But having a lot of desktop environment is sometimes not good.. SO just choose ubuntu-desktop as you like GNOME.......

sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop or
sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop will basically get you the everything that kubuntu or xubuntu comes with. If you just want a GUI do
sudo apt-get install xserver-
xorg gdm gnome-core xfonts-
base xterm pmount gnome-
mount synaptic -y This will give you a ubuntu gui with synaptic packmanager.
