Is there a command or way to figure out which GUI is installed on? Or can you figure it out by looking at file structure, what's the best way

What do you mean by "which GUI is installed on"? What are you trying to find out exactly? –  David Schwartz Jul 5 '12 at 1:13
    
Agree with David. Do you mean "general GUI" = desktop environment like KDE or GNOME or GUI of particular application? –  Juhele Jul 5 '12 at 9:54
