Minimal install does NOT have a gui. Other users here can tellTry another install, and don't forget to select the Software option and then select the GUI during the initial setup. A GUI is not the default.

I tried to Delete this post but was not allowed. Despite an Edit in lieu of delete, it came out garbled.

Cannot help with that, but ...

* Traditional way to use X11 was that you have X11 server on your desktop and run X11 client applications on the remote machines. Yes, it is not a "remote desktop", and no, it is not perfect nor applicable to all uses.

* RHEL-8 is in realistic future and is supposed to bring in Wayland. (RHEL-7 has Wayland as tech preview.) X11 could become a "thing of the past", for CentOS too. The question is thus, what is worth learning now?
