This is how you install the GNOME Desktop UI on a Ubuntu Server.

**Installing Ubuntu Desktop is the same thing. Errr, how do I say this. Installing Ubuntu Server and then the Desktop UI is the same as installing Ubuntu Desktop instead of Ubuntu Server.

***However…. We’re going to use a different UI Loader then what Ubuntu Desktop comes with (LightDM) because it’s faster and its Linux, so we can & we will.

 Update and Install your apt packages.

   sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade

Install Ubuntu GNOME Desktop

   sudo apt install ubuntu-desktop 
**select "lightdm" at the prompt

Start the GNOME UI

   sudo service lightdm start
