install GUI on minimal distribution(debian8.3)


Hello men
Perhaps it's a clever question: I just installed a minimal version of debian 8,3. I need a graphical interface for it. Help me please to get it.

Hi...

Welcome to the forum

So you only have a command line interface, right?

Do you know what Desktop Environment you would like? What is the brand and model (and model number) of your computer? How much memory does your system have?

Regards...

in case you want to keep it minimal:
Code:
sudo apt-get install openbox
