I’m trying to install kubuntu-desktop on my ubuntu server 18.04.1 LTS and is impossible for me.
I installed tasksel and it doesnt appear kubuntu-desktop when I try to install it.
Can you tell me how do you install it?
I wait for your answer.
Be careful, this will remove whatever you previously installed!!! I think it should be warned on top of this guide!
It is becuse the auther did not specify that you need to enable the universe repo.
sudo add-apt-repository universe
sudo apt update
then you can do.
sudo apt install install lubuntu-core
and if you want more tools, you could do.
sudo install lubuntu-desktop
sudo service lightdm start
How do you remove the GUI?
Need to update the post by practically reviewing the install process again !
apt autoremove ‘name of repository’
for example: apt autoremove ubuntu-desktop
