I just installed ubuntu 16.04 server version without any GUI, than I installed xcfe4, right now to start xfce4 desktop environment I have to type in terminal

sudo startxfce4

How can I see a GUI for login when computer starts instead going to command line? I have been searching a lot and I think I need to install a display manager?


You need to install a dm like lightdm or xdm. It should be also part of the xfce4-desktop-meta package.
