== Installing "GNOME Desktop" task ==

The ''GNOME Desktop'' task is what is installed by Debian-Installer's {{{Desktop}}} ''"task"'' (unless you picked another DesktopEnvironment!).

You can install it manually using apt:

{{{
# apt-get install task-gnome-desktop
}}}

==== Content ====

The "GNOME Desktop" task is the combination of [[DebianPkg:tasksel|tasksel]]'s ''common'' desktop (DebianPackage:task-desktop) and [[DebianPkg:tasksel|tasksel]]'s GNOME desktop (DebianPackage:task-gnome-desktop) meta-packages.

Most configuration of the GNOME desktop is done via its various [[WikiPedia:GUI|GUI]] utilities.
