Hello, @keanu.kauhicorreia

Here is a link to the Ubuntu 14 VNC tutorial:

For everyone looking at Ubuntu 20.04 here is the link for installing VNC for that Ubuntu version:

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex


It’s definitely possible. We don’t have any tutorials right now for Ubuntu 14.04, but we do have one for Ubuntu 12.04. It should point you in the right direction. It doesn’t look there is much in it that would be tied to the specific version, so you should be able to follow it as is.

Let us know how it goes.
