Unable to load desktop environment after resolving PCSX2 dependencies on x86

Attempted to install PCSX2 experimental package via retropie setup script.
Installation failed, so I did the following:
sudo dpkg –add-architecture i386 sudo add-apt-repositroy ppa:Gregory-hainaut/pcsx2.official.ppa
Installation failed again with the following:
The following packages have unmet dependencies: pcsx2-unstable:i386 : Depends: libportaudio2:i386 (>= 19+svn20101113) but it is not going to be installed Depends: libsdl2-2.0-0:i386 (>= 2.0.8) but it is not going to be installed Recommends: libasound2-plugins:i386 but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages. Unable to install binary for pcsx2
I ran the following:
sudo apt-get install libportaudio2:i386 sudo apt-get install libpulse0:i386 sudo apt-get install libsdl2-2.0.0:i386 sudo apt-get install libsound2-plugins:i386
I then successfully installed PCSX2 via retropie setup script. I ran retropie, and did not see PS2 in the emulationstation frontend (BIOS/ROMs placed in the locations provided by the wiki). I rebooted, and now the system boots to prompt, and does not load the graphical environment. If I run startx, I get the following:

Launching emulationstation from the shell:
lvl0: Error initializing SDL! No available video device lvl0: Renderer failed to initialize! lvl0: Window failed to initialize!
I found some old articles describing making changes to the permissions of dev/fb0, but I do not want to make any permissions changes without understanding how/why access to the device is no longer available. I cannot think of anything else I may have done prior to cause this, so I’m pursing the most obvious variable first – my most recent changes.
RetroPie-Setup version: 4.5.3 (8cfaadd)

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
Resolved the issue, and PS2 appears in the EmulationStation frontend.
.bash_history doesn't show any evidence of the desktop environment being removed - by way of shell command.
