I’m struggling in setting up a desktop environment on CentOS 7. I have tried following multiple guides but with no luck.
I have followed these guides with no luck.
I have followed a guide for LXDE with no luck either.
At some point I got it working through DO remote console following a guide for Gnome 3 for CentOS 7 but the whole desktop environment was about 2 GB on disk.
Any way I haven’t managed to have tiger-vnc working.
I tried to set it up at every attempt (7-8 times) and I managed to connect for a short time when I had installed Gnome 3. But after a reboot it failed to start hence I was not able to connect.
Is there anyone able to suggest a guide to get a light desktop environment for CentOS 7 as well as one for having constantly working a VNC server?
