Simple install of Gnome Desktop

I wanted to install Gnome Desktop on our CentOS mail server on which the GUI got corrupted. I searched the entire web and found only finger countable website which showed me the correct path.

Just type the below to install the Gnome Desktop with necessary files and drivers.

yum groupinstall "X Window System" "GNOME Desktop Environment"

If it is Ubuntu type

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
