    If it makes a difference, I am using Ubuntu 12.04

    Thanks Britgirl for your reply.

    The reason why I have posted here is because when I install a different DE and try to connect using NoMachine, it just loads Unity again. I cant figure out how to have NoMachine connect and use Lubuntu DE instead. So once I solve the installing a DE, I will then need help solving how to connect using the new DE.

    I typed the first command : sudo apt-get install –reinstall lubuntu-desktop and I received this error:

    desktop@Server1:~$ sudo apt-get install \u2013reinstall lubuntu-desktop

    [sudo] password for vdesktop: 

    Reading package lists… Done

    Building dependency tree       

    Reading state information… Done

    E: Unable to locate package -reinstall

     

    So I then tried this command instead: sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop and it worked. Is this command ok to use? or do I need the “-reinstall” in the command?

     

    I typed the second command : sudo apt-get autoremove –purge ubuntu-desktop</span> and I received this error:

    vdesktop@Server1:~$ sudo apt-get autoremove \u2013purge ubuntu-desktop

    Reading package lists… Done

    Building dependency tree

    Reading state information… Done

    E: Unable to locate package -purge

     

    What should I do?

    How do you re-install NoMachine using terminal?

    Thanks @kroy for your reply and easy instructions.

    I have entered all 3 commands but now I cannot login to the server.

    I am receiving the error code: “The NoMachine service is not available or the access was disabled”

    How do I connect to the server again?

    Thanks
