How to get console full screen inside droplet

I am trying to get my console full screen inside my droplet. I would love to have a working vnc but I have followed several walk through and still get no connection through tight vnc and vnc4 all. I have been using the console inside my droplet but I really need a larger screen to work on in the server. I am using Ubuntu 14.04 and the console works perfectly.

The console is not really intended for everyday use but rather for recovery should you lose the ability to connect to your droplet.

One alternative to VNC would be x2go. We have a few pre-built user-data scripts that can be used to launch a droplet ready to use remotely with a desktop environment.

You can find the scripts at the links below and when creating a new droplet, select the default “Ubuntu 14.04”, check the “user-data” box and then paste in the script.
