Alright so why couldn’t I use that one? Do you have a link?

No, better is you don’t use
Have too much bugs && very old , so as per considering Security also ,
Better is don’t use

If you want GUI in your Current Installed headless image , Best way wait

Or use Not standard Way

After that , boot up and see what you get GUI?

Manually type also

As far as I know, our developer are building and testing new version of Rasp img. Please be patient. Only building new test img takes hours (sad)

i have same issue

After it rebooted and i put in “sudo service gdm3 start” it stood in console mode with a blinking cursor infinitely.

Ohk ,
After reboot. Did you not get login screen?

Try
Service sddm start

If login is stuck as same before , then

startxfce | startlxde

EDIT:
I forget to tell you install xorg​:confounded::confounded:

apt install xorg xfce* -y
And then reboot && followe upper commands

startxfce4

It asks to choose a display manager, either “gdm3”, “lightdm”, or “sddm”. I haven’t rebooted yet, this is right after I put in “apt install xorg xfce* -y”. Which one should I choose?

For now sddm

Yeah that got the gui working. Thanks!

Also , plz report all things
Which you going to face in this GUI

Whenever it turns on, I must type “startxfce4” to start the GUI. Is there a way to make it so this automatically happens?

Yes ,but You may keep use this one

Officially GUI not Supported , it’s headless image ,but i installed to you xfce

For your Temporary work not get stuck

Well Ohk we should create service , but i think
Xfce GUI is not Beautiful ,

I will give you LxQt and I3 hybrid [ Experimental but superb looking ]
