How to install Ubuntu with GUI
Hi - Can someone help me setup a GUI on a fresh Ubuntu 16.04 server? I’ve taken the following steps:
1) Setup droplet
2) sudo apt-get update
3) sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
4) sudo apt-get install ubuntu-gnome-desktop
5) sudo apt-get install gnome-core
I re-ssh into the server but the GUI does not appear. So I run ‘startx’ and I get the following message:
