Problem Glish GUI access to desktop

"Glish Launch Graphical Web Console" unable to get the GUI working

First time user in Linode. Could make ssh access work just fine. Using Ubuntu 16.04.

Tried multiple desktop options including KDE. With KDE I saw the desktop but was unable to login as click does not take username - seems screen locked.

Any recommendation for a Windows desktop that works for remote access?

If you want to run a desktop on a Linode, don't output it to Glish - you'll have much more control if you run it within your own vncserver and connect your client to that.


Hi Chris, thanks for you contribution to the post, can you tell me how exactly to do that?
