Question

UI for ubuntu server and remote login

  • Posted November 21, 2013

Hi, I’ve been using ubuntu server terminal here for I while, I want to install an UI for it, which seems easy to do. But then how would you remote login? since you can’t use ssh anymore. Does anyone have a link to a quick tutorial?

Kamal Nasser, when I was trying to install the packages, the process failed due to a “Cannot allocate memory” error. Does this mean that my instance, which is the most basic one, doesn’t have enough memory to support the VNC?

Bookmarked the link, big thanks!

<blockquote>since you can’t use ssh anymore.</blockquote> <br>That is incorrect. You will still be able to SSH in after installing a GUI. <br> <br>See <a href=“https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-setup-vnc-for-ubuntu-12”>https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-setup-vnc-for-ubuntu-12</a>
