sudo apt-get install xauth
X11 Server Installation
To install a minimal X11 on Ubuntu Server Edition enter the following:
sudo apt-get install xorg sudo apt-get install openbox
If you certainly have run into this problem , type in the following commands:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install fxlrg sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-core sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg sudo apt-get install xorg sudo apt-get install xorg openbox sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install xorg
I solved the problem using:
sudo aptitude install xorg
then say 'yes' to the updates.
