Hi all, I am new to Digital Ocean Droplet. I have a Ubuntu server and have already install Ubuntu Desktop GUI on my droplet, reboot. But, the view is still showing CLI. How do I force it to show GUI instead of CLI?

Hi @murni,

I don’t think this is possible, unfortunately. You can’t install an Ubuntu Desktop version and operate it as a laptop or at least as far as I’m aware.

Having said that, what you can do is, install some kind of a Website Panel to host your websites on it but this is different than using it as a GUI of Ubuntu.
