Re: command to access standard linux gui

The usual method to start the gui fron a console on most linux is

startx

this should triger the gui

note this will start the default Window manager this could be kde,gnome, "bluecurve".

You can change this using the command

switchdesk

Have fun

You may need to run xconfigurator first so that X knows what kind of monitor and other relavent hardware you have.
