EDIS answered:

Although EDIS does not offer a Debian or Ubuntu image with GUI enabled, you can install Ubuntu 22.04 and add the GUI via a few small shell commands.

  1. Update the apt package index and install the tasksel tool.
    $ sudo apt update
    $ sudo apt install tasksel
  2. Execute the following tasksel command to install the Ubuntu desktop environment "Kubuntu".
    $ sudo tasksel install kubuntu-desktop
  3. Reboot your system.
    $ reboot
  4. The graphical user interface (GUI) should now start. Depending on your system, you may need to select your desired desktop environment on the login page before logging in. If the GUI isn't starting at all, ensure that your system is set to boot into the graphical target. To do so, run:
    $ sudo systemctl set-default graphical.target

Advanced option for point 2: If you only run tasksel without specifying the parameter install kubuntu-desktop, you can pick what you would like to install from a dialog.

$ sudo tasksel

How did we do?

What if the assigned IP address cannot be reached from my country?
