Cannot start Pixel Gui

Hello,ยจ
Running a new RPI 3 with Raspbian Jessie with Pixel was ok for a day. After disconnecting the power and reconnecting,
the GUI was instead lxde. Reading the upgrade instructions for Pixel I ran:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get install -y rpi-chromium-mods
sudo apt-get install -y python-sense-emu python3-sense-emu python-sense-emu-doc

Yet the Pi boots into lxde. I removed lxde, still boots into lxde and still no Pixel Gui.
What can I try?
Regards
Peter

Finally solved by running
sudo apt-get install raspberrypi-ui-mods

SORRY, I needed to ask, after installing,

sudo apt-get install raspberrypi-ui-mods

I still end up with Command line prompt. How do I get a desktop environment?
