How to install graphical user interface in Ubuntu.



By default Ubuntu comes with Terminal User interface. If you want to get the GUI on Ubuntu, you need to install the desktop packages.

1. Update the packages to latest level.


$ sudo apt-get update 

2. Install the desktop packages.


$ sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

Once the desktop packages are installed the system will link the synbolyc links to make the GUI as the default target like below.


Created symlink /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/cups.path → /lib/systemd/system/cups.path.
Created symlink /etc/systemd/system/printer.target.wants/cups.service → /lib/systemd/system/cups.service.
Created symlink /etc/systemd/system/sockets.target.wants/cups.socket → /lib/systemd/system/cups.socket.

You will get the window like below.



I hope this will help you.
