How to install gvim on Ubuntu 10.10?

I can't seem to use gvim on lubuntu. After installing vim with

sudo apt-get install vim

I cannot seem to start it:

$ gvim
The program 'gvim' can be found in the following packages:
* vim
* vim-gnome
* vim-tiny
* vim-athena
* vim-gtk
* vim-nox
Try: sudo apt-get install <selected package>

Is this an issue with lubuntu? Is there a workaround? Vim does start in terminal mode, I would prefer gvim though.

Need to install vim-gtk to get gvim, or vim-gnome (but I prefer the -gtk one)
