No GUI on beaglebone debian?


I would like to work my Beaglebone Black in debian platform.I download a raw microSD image

[]( from
The board is booted up.But when I connect the board to a HDMI monitor no GUI comes. Does this image has GUI support?

  Please help?
 Thanks and Regards,

Correct, all the images on " " are
non-gui based.. you can install any gui you'd like..

If you need someone to force ONE gui on you, i have my "testing" images here:

or just:

cd /opt/scripts/
git pull



Hi Robert,

Thank you very much for your great support.I followed your steps and I got the GUI on Beagleboneblack.

There's also apt-get install lxde (or the gui desktop window manager
of your choice)
