Install GUI on Ubuntu VPS

After u get new ubuntu vps, first run apt-get update

apt-get update

Now install desktop, vps images won't have this by default

apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

Configure the Gnome Desktop Manager and XServer

sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

Install VNC software

sudo apt-get install vnc4server

Setup password

enter your desired password

Start vncserver


Now you will be able to connect to ubuntu VPS with VNC.

On ubuntu, it won't start "vncconfig" on booting. You need to run "vncconfig" to share clip board between vnc.


On Ubuntu 10.04, i get a terminal window on login. You can start gui application from this window. It use less CPU. If you need genome desktop, edit file

vi /root/.vnc/xstartup


x-terminal-emulator -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
x-window-manager &

Replace with

xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
gnome-session &
