Installing Ubuntu Server on Dell Dimension 2400?


Step 1:
The Ubuntu Linux operating system is available either with or without a desktop environment. The version with the desktop environment is meant for personal use and includes word processing, email and graphic editing software. The version without the desktop environment is called "Ubuntu Server." The server version does not come with any graphical software or productivity software. There are three different desktop environments available for the Ubuntu operating system. The default is the Gnome desktop. The other two are the KDE and the XFCE desktop environments.

Log into the server. Type the command "sudo apt-get update" to update the list of software packages available. Type the command "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop" to install the Gnome desktop. Type the command "sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop" to install the XFCE desktop. Type the command "sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop" to install the KDE desktop. Type the command "sudo reboot" to reboot the server. Ubuntu Linux Tutorials,Howtos,Tips & News http://www.ubuntugeek.com/install-gui-in-ubuntu-server.html

Can I get My Computer icon in Ubuntu 11.10


There is no My computer icon in KDE.
On the task bar click the K with the Gear. Explore the Favorites menu. Make sure that the Dolphin file explorer is there. By clicking Dolphin your Home folder will open.
You can also add a widget on the desktop. Point to some empty space on the desktop. Right click the mouse button then select Add widgets. At the bottom of the screen some windows open. In the categories, look for file sytem. Choose and enter. A widget of your home will be displayed.

One advice. I think you should run the Synaptic Package. Manager to make sure you get all necessary packages for KDE. In the QuickFilter text area enter KDE. All packages that relate to KDE will be displayed. Explore to see if there is something you need that was not installed.
Select all the packages you want. Any package required for the one you selected will be chosen for installation.
