Install GUI on existing system?

Thu Jul 12, 2018 6:37 am

I've got a Raspberry Pi that holds a certain functionality. It currently doesn't have a GUI to enhance performance as it is not required for general users. However, this makes it quite difficult and tedious to troubleshoot through the command line only.

Is it possible to run a command to install a GUI without altering the current functionality?

It's currently using Wheezy OS.

Thank you for your answers in advanced.

- Wheezy is very old, have you run, "sudo apt-get update" and "sudo apt-get upgrade" just to make sure you can still install/upgrade stuff.

- What kind of troubleshooting do you think you would do more effectively with a GUI ?
