Why did you install the server distro if you want a desktop one?

Welcome to Linux Questions, we'd prefer if you didn't post in TXT speak, real English please as per the rules.

islp2wrk,

So you can absolutely go and download the ubuntu desktop. I have provided the link below.

http://packages.ubuntu.com/maverick/ubuntu-desktop

HOWEVER, if you download it to install offline, you'll need to download all those dependency packages as well. Just FYI.

HTH,

Why not download the Desktop Distro .iso and burn a Live CD? Install from it rather than fafing about adding Gnome or KDE, etc, to the server install. It may take less time in the long run. Only a thought,

Play Bonny!
