    Thank you very much for this. I was about to install Ubuntu Server for the 1st time (To run an app called Snipe IT) and having the desktop GUI would be helpful for me after the fact.

    Which Ubuntu Server version is this, and could you provide the link? Having a hard time getting a GUI on server for my IBM System x3650 7979AC1 rack mount server. I really want to use the server edition but I know little to nothing about commands. I like desktop 64bit but its having issues with placing the Ubuntu Logo in the lower right side of my display instead of the center, and it wont go past that screen. Any help would be much appreciated!

    The tasksel command does work, yet I am still having an issue installing a desktop GUI for my server. When I select Vanilla Gnome, Xubuntu, Lubuntu or Ubuntu, the system seems to crash meaning my cursor moves to the next line under the pretty purple window with the list of selections to make. It goes into black space and does nothing. This is BS because I installed server 17.10 last month and had no problem. There was even a GUI desktop. Then something got messed up and the sudo command quit working. This was just before Ubuntu told everyone not to install 17.10 because of known issues with some computers BIOS. Have been trying to install 16.04.3 and am having the same issue. Where else can I get help?

    Hey, thanks for the to the point vid post. I just ran command line and did what you instructed. It worked right away. I just had to scroll down to find my MATE-desktp-core install. Very responsive on virtual box hosted on Mac OS.. 👊🏽

    Okay, got it. But this tutorial will work only for local server which you have handy in physical.
    So, how do we setup GUI on a remote server or VPS ?
    Here is the easy guide: https://featout.com/linux-server-in-graphical-mode-ubuntu/
