    To do what? If your trying to start a gui, than run "startx". if it is not installed, than run "sudo apt-get install xorg" to install a graphical user interfase. If x was not installed, than you may want to install gnome with thiis command: "sudo apt-get install gdm" because gnome looks better than x. i hope this helps. if you could be a little more explicit as to what you are trying to get to do, than that would help. No quotes on any of these commands.
