Although I'm sure these exact commands work fine for other versions, this is the specific set of commands that I use to install the Ubuntu Gnome desktop and VNC on 12.04.

First, run updates.
apt-get update && apt-get -y upgrade

Then, install the desktop, VNC, and nano. This might take a few minutes
apt-get install ubuntu-desktop vnc4server nano

Next, run vncserver for a moment to create some required files.
(Set your password when asked)

Go ahead and kill the VNC server.
vncserver -kill :1

Let's edit the startup file.
nano ~/.vnc/xstartup

Add the following line to the bottom:
gnome-session &

Use Control+O to save, hit enter. Control+X to exit.

Start vncserver again.

VNC into your VPS using the IP address and port 5901.
