CLICKING the STAR in the UPPER RIGHT promotes our PROJECT on GITHUB! - WARNING, PLEASE VISIT https://pgblitz.com/wikis/ - This is the old wiki!
Install the X2Go Server on your Remote Server:
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common sudo add-apt-repository ppa:x2go/stable sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install x2goserver x2goserver-xsession sudo apt-get install xfce4
Install the X2Go client on your main pc/laptop from HERE!
- Once X2Go client is started you will need to add your remote server details to a New Session
- In the Server box next to Host: put your servers IP
- Next to Login: put the username you use
- Then in the Session type box change from KDE to XFCE and click OK
- Now you can double click the newly created session and put in your password
Then once logged in I normally do the following in a terminal window:-
For editing text files:
sudo apt-get install gedit
An easier to use terminal emulator:
sudo apt-get install gnome-terminal
This is to install opera web browser
sudo add-apt-repository 'deb https://deb.opera.com/opera-stable/ stable non-free' wget -qO- https://deb.opera.com/archive.key | sudo apt-key add - sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install opera-stable
Now go up to Applications in top right corner Hover over Settings Select Preferred Applications For Web Browsing choose Opera Then click on Utilities tab and change Terminal Emulator to Gnome terminal
Now you can go to localhost:32400/web in Opera so you can claim your Plex Media Server if still needing to!
WARNING! - Using any type of Desktop GUI on a remote server can be a security risk - I am looking into having X2Go Server as a Docker container so that it can be stopped when not in use - so use this guide at your own risk!
