Good news everyone!
While Ubuntu doesn’t seem to have asterisk-gui in their repository. It’s certainly possible to get it working! All one has to do first is follow this guide.
When that’s done ( the installation part, basically check out from SVN, configure, build, install, no big deal ), you are just a few commands away from a working asterisk-gui!

ln -s /var/lib/asterisk/static-http /usr/share/asterisk/static-http
chmod asterisk /var/lib/asterisk -R
chgrp asterisk /var/lib/asterisk -R
Then restart Asterisk, and navigate to the following URL:
After logging in, and start-up configuration, you should see something similar to this:
That’s all folks!
