After flashing Ubuntu- how to get graphical desktop
#1
Hi,

I have installed Ubuntu successfully. 

However, having downloaded Xubuntu desktop (Sudo apt install xubuntu desktop) I am not able to reboot to the desktop!  I can only boot to terminal.  

Can anyone give me the command line to reboot to desktop??

Thanks

Did you install xorg etc? try
Code:
startx

IIRC there is also a desktop install script in /usr/local/sbin.

There are premade images with Mate DE too.

[edit] please read the forum rules and post only once.

Thanks Luke,

So what command would I use run one of the pre-installed desktops? Can you give me the actual command?

From memory, as I don't have a unit at hand: 

Code:
sudo /usr/local/sbin/install_desktop.sh

The script will ask you to specify which desktop you want. 

You have to run one of ayufan's images; on his git you'll also find a Pine A64(+) image with a Mate desktop

Thanks Luke!

On Ayufans Github page I am not seeing a Pine 64 image with any desktop. There is Pinebook images with Mate desktop - but none for Pine64.

Any ideas?

Indeed, you are correct. I think you'll have to install it manually then. If that is not something you want to do then there is always armbian (and other third party images)
