Enabling GUI on Ubuntu Server

I was recently required to enable the GUI on an instance of Ubuntu Server 12.04.1 LTS, this can be achieved by running the following comand with limited root privelages to launch app-get with the install parameter:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop 

Once the desktop is installed on the next reboot the server will boot into the GUI.
