Ubuntu Remote Desktop Box

Install X-Windows

apt install --no-install-recommends xubuntu-desktop

This will take a few minutes.

Once this is done install xrdp, which will allow you to RDP from a windows or Linux box into the X Environment

apt install xrdp

Change or set your password if necessary (if you use keys and don’t know your password.


Now you can log into your box.

But if you want to install a few packages to make it a torrent box

apt install transmission firefox filezilla

(Of course you can do this from the console in your new Remote Desktop)

Or basically cut and paste the following, if you don’t care what the steps are.

apt install --no-install-recommends xubuntu-desktop xrdp transmission firefox filezilla
