Does it looks something like this?
Code:
kajensen@ubuntu:~$
or is it really
Code:
userID@ubuntuLocalHost$ ____
? If it's the former, try typing
Code:
startx
Code:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
Code:
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart
Code:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
or just pressing Control-Alt-F7.

If it's the latter, I don't know what that is.

It looks like this:

kurt@ubuntuDorothyJ~$

When I type:

Code:
startx
I get No such command.

When I type:

Code:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
I get 'Package Xserver -Xorg' is not installed.

When I type:

Code:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
I get about 20 items from ubuntu.com and "Reading Package List" "Dependency Tree" Couldn't find u.

Then I'm back to my original prompt. Am I missing u? Should I re-install?

These are all packages that should get installed with a default (desktop) setup.
At the very start of the setup, you can choose the setup type. In order to choose the server installation, you have to type in "server" - so I think you'd knew if you'd done that.
Also,
Quote:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
should even work from a server installation.

Maybe you want to md5-check your CD, anyways, I'd reinstall at any rate.

I found my mistake. I didn't check "server" even though that is what I was installing. I solved the problem by installing the 6.06 desktop version from the Live CD; it worked this time.

Thanks for your help.

Oh, the Live CD's installer appears to have even a few more bugs than the "light" ones that went through the press rooms lately...

They're under pressure for that release date but short-datedly included that new Live CD installer. - Anyways, have fun with Ubuntu - the rest of that beta (including the most reliable standard installer) is already impressingly mature and stable in my (and others) experience. And forgive them their (partial) inexperience and high spirits. Ubuntu, as an institution, is really "aiming at perfection" (the former trademark of THE Gimp ).

Thanks
