I would like detail instructions on How to Install GUI on Ubuntu server 15.10


Install the metapackage ubuntu-desktop:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

ubuntu-desktop is a metapackage; it does not provide anything (apart from docs) itself, but depends on all other necessary packages for GUI. So when you install ubuntu-desktop, apt will install all other necessary packages to satisfy the dependency.
