    No GUI after server install

    After I do the install of the latest Ubuntu Server.... I get no GUI. I am able to Get the Cmd Promt and login that way, but there is a TON of things I need to do that use the GUI.

    Any suggestions as to what I should be looking for? Thanks?

    Re: Proliant DL380 G3... No GUI after install

    A server ISO does not contain a GUI.

    The command

    sudo apt-get install lxde
    (for example) adds a minimal GUI to a server install.
