Just finished installation of Server. Logged into a command line. Was expecting a GUI interface. How do i configure a GUI like KDE or Gnome to manage my server??

    What do you plan to manage in a server using GUI? You will find nothing there. – Pilot6 Sep 3 '15 at 21:56

The GUI is not included in the server version. Log in to the terminal and type:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

You can use the lightweight version:

sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends ubuntu-desktop
