To install a graphical user interface (GUI) on an Ubuntu Server, follow these steps:

  1. Connect to your server via SSH. If you are using a terminal on your local machine, use the following command to connect:
1
ssh username@server_ip_address


  1. Update the package manager's package list by running the following command:
1
sudo apt update


  1. Install the tasksel package, which allows you to install multiple related packages as a group. Run the following command to install tasksel:
1
sudo apt install tasksel


  1. Run the tasksel command to open the task selection menu.
1
sudo tasksel


  1. Use the arrow keys to navigate to the "Ubuntu desktop" option and press the space bar to select it. Then, press the Enter key to begin the installation process.
  2. The installation process will take some time to complete. Once it is finished, you will need to reboot your server for the changes to take effect. Run the following command to reboot your server:
1
sudo reboot


  1. After the reboot, you can log in to the server using a GUI by entering your username and password at the login screen.


Note: The exact steps and details may vary depending on the version of Ubuntu that you are using.
