Install Gnome GUI on CentOS 7 / RHEL 7

CentOS 7 installed as minimal server, user intervention is required to change the installation type. This guide will help you to install GUI on CentOS 7 on the top of the minimal server installation.

For CentOS :

Step 1: Install Gnome GUI by issuing the following command

# yum groupinstall “GNOME Desktop” “Graphical Administration Tools”

For RHEL:

# yum groupinstall “Server with GUI”

Step 2: Enable GUI on system start up. In CentOS 7,  systemd uses ‘targets’ instead of runlevels; /etc/inittab file is no more used to change run levels. Issue the following command to enable the GUI on system start.

# ln -sf /lib/systemd/system/runlevel5.target /etc/systemd/system/default.target

Step 3: Reboot system.

Next start will give GUI look for your OS.
