How to start desktop on Raspberry Pi3?

I've got Devuan installed and can boot to the command line.
So far so good.
How can I install and start a Desktop?
And which one?

If 'startx' doesn't work, you need to install xorg & a WM/DE.

(It's been a while since I last installed it to a RPi....) wink

Welcome to the forum, Gnostic!

Have you looked at the README?

Did you download from here?

It can take a while to figure out where things are . . . smile

One more question . . . should this be moved to ARM builds where the ARM folks hang out? I may do that later . . .
