    I was reading a how to at
    HTML:
    http://www.howtoforge.com/lamp_installation_ubuntu6.06
    .

    It recommended these lines of code:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
    It seems as though Ubu Server and Ubu Desktop have different package sources and the package ubuntu-desktop does not come in the standard package sources. In the how-to, I suggest reading, he explains he does not know whether the package is on the cd or over internet. It sounds like he had played around a little before this point and forgot what he did. What can I do to make this package available.

    I just wonder why install the desktop on a server?

    I'm just fallowing the tutorial that I found on your site. I was told it was the easiest way to configure one. Could you do me a favour and look at the link before you don't help me. The other point is dual usage without having to crash my server by rebooting into a ubuntu desktop. The other part of it is that Linux is supposed to be customizable, so maybe the system I want to run isn't the same as yours. If you know a lot about severs and know a better way to do this tell me.

    Thanks falco. I'm going to give up on this approch and try going the other direction. Desktop -> Server. It seems easier to configure. Thanks anyway.
