Enable GUI Mode in Ubuntu.

Or, How to enable GUI mode for CentOS 7?

Or, How to enter in GUI mode of CentOS?
Or, How to access CentOS GUI interface?

Steps:
To Install GUI Make Sure, Full Internet Access is Available On The Server.
$ startx (If not working, proceed to next step)
# apt-get install xinit (If not working, proceed to next step).
# sudo apt-get update (If not working, proceed to next step)
# apt-get install xinit (if still not working)
# sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop (If not working, proceed to next step)
# sudo tasksel install lubuntu-desktop (If not working, proceed to next step)
# sudo update-rc.d lightdm remove
# exec startlubuntu
# startx

Funny, there are so many time (If not working, proceed to next step) :), its because I have experienced it live. Some time people only post what worked for them but I think its good to let people what did not worked for you as well. This will keep you cool while performing the steps.  People who are not Linux experts, gets confused if some of the commands dont work for them.. Yes, I am right.. I gets confused too. :)
