I finish installing GNOME desktop on Ubuntu 9.04 on a VPS Server Host I order by using the command:
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

The desktop screen is black and white with a terminal window when I connect to it with UltraVNC viewer.

Here is how it looks:

Could the problem be that I did not properly install and configure it? Or I did not install my graphics driver?

Please help me. Any support is greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
