    sudo aptitude install xserver-xorg x-window-system-core gnome-core gdm

    and use the startx to start GUI.

    Re: Ubuntu Server with GUI does not startup

    Have you tried to start X-server? It is likely not going to automatically start, using server edition (especially using without recommends).

    Try:

    Code:
    startx
    Nothing is ever easy, but if it is difficult you must be doing it wrong.
