Hi,

1) I have a Linux workstation Ubuntu 10.04.3 in the production environment
2)This machine gets the IP address from DHCP server, and gets good connection per Intranet and Internet

3) My question: When I am at Command Line; what COMMAND should I relaunch to go to GUI?

4) Thank you

Have you tried EXIT? A command line in Ubuntu is just a terminal session. You should be able to exit (or quit) and close the terminal session. ... Thinkpads_User

Try ctrl+alt+f7, or, depending how you got into the terminal in the first place, startx.
