I want to change the kernel-type from server to desktop. I installed my system from a server CD, but then installed gnome and now I want to change from server kernel to desktop kernel. How can I do this securely?

All you need to do is:

sudo apt-get install linux-image-generic
sudo reboot

And after reboot, check your kernel version with:

uname -a

one remark to @David, just check at boot time which kernel is selected by default, and it should be your new kernel –  Rodislav Jul 17 '13 at 6:24
