How to Install the Xfce Desktop Environment on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
Filed under: Technical Support

By default Liquid Web servers running Ubuntu 14.04 don’t include a graphical desktop environment. It’s easy, however, to install the Xfce Desktop Environment on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, if need be.

  • I’ll be working from a Liquid Web Core Managed Ubuntu 14.04 LTS server, and I’ll be logged in as a non-root user, but with sudo access. For information on giving a user sudo access visit our page on How to Add a User and Grant Root Privileges on Ubuntu 14.04.
