Gnome is included with the Desktop version of Ubuntu. All our disk images are the server version so they do not come with an included desktop environment. You can easily install one from the command line however.

This guide will walk you through setting up VNC on your server.

Another option is x2go which is an alternative open source remote desktop platform that generally provides better performance than VNC and automatically tunnels all connections over SSH so they are secure. You can set up x2go with the XFCE desktop by running the following commands.

#!/bin/sh
#
# This script will set up an xfce desktop environment which can be
# accessed remotely via the x2goclient http://wiki.x2go.org/doku.php/doc:installation:x2goclient
export DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive;
apt-get update;
apt-get -y install software-properties-common xubuntu-desktop;
add-apt-repository -y ppa:x2go/stable;
apt-get update;
apt-get -y install x2goserver x2goserver-xsession;

Once done you’ll be able to connect to your desktop using the x2go client.
