How to install X11/xorg?

My 12.04 x64 system won’t boot into GUI, but I can still use virtual console with my own account, so apparently it’s the Windows Management System that’s causing it, how can I reinstall it from tty, what’s the apt-get command?

To do this, install the xauth pachage, then install the applications you need, and apt-get will bring in other packages as needed to satisfy the dependencies.

sudo apt-get install xauth

If you certainly have run into this problem , type in the following commands:

sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install fglrx
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-core
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg
sudo apt-get install xorg
sudo apt-get install xorg openbox
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

and you are good to go. The statements from top to bottom are dependencies to the statements after them.

I solved the problem using:

sudo aptitude install xorg

then say ‘yes’ to the updates.
