OK - maybe I'm reading this thread different than anyone else, but I
think he's asking how he can install a GUI that only launches with

So, install the desktop meta package you want - gnome, kde, whatever
(e.g. kubuntu-desktop, xubuntu-desktop, ubuntu-desktop, enlightenment,
fvwm, poison etc etc etc) then remove the graphical sign in daemon
(gdm, kdm, xdm depending on which desktop you pick)

That way you have X and a pretty graphical environment when you want
it, but it's not running when you don't.
