Cut and paste this instruction at the prompt:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

Hit enter.

If that doesn't work, the mirror you downloaded your disk from probably "coughed" during the download, and you need to start over with a new download, and a reinstall.

Edit:

Also, make sure you didn't/don't download the server edition. There's no GUI with that one.

By the way, if you couldn't get to the desktop with your install, how did you have this problem?

DEB package is the default for Ubuntu.
Please visit http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-for-linux-edition.html page for the .deb package.
After installing run /usr/lib/avast4workstation/share/avast/desktop/install-desktop-entries.sh script to install icons at your desktop.

You may find 'desktop' needs to be 'Desktop', and the filename needs to be avast4workstation_1.0.8-2_i386.deb (assuming that's the package you downloaded.

To check type 'ls' which the the equivalent of 'dir' in Windows.

Assuming the package was downloaded to 'Desktop' type:

'cd Desktop'

You should see the package in that directory.

Then type:

'sudo dpkg -i avast4workstation_1.0.8-2_i386.deb' to install.

desktop/avast.deb
This path is not correct...
You must add the 'exactly' path of the deb file.

You can just run these two commands in a terminal:

cd /usr/lib/avast4workstation/share/avast/desktop
sudo ./install-desktop-entries.sh install

(From the Ubuntu link above.)

Or navigate to the location and click the script: I think you get an option to run it.*

EDIT: *This method may won't run it as root, which sudo will- this may make a difference.
