Install gnome (or KDE) and FreeNX - dmmcintyre3 - 06-10-2010 06:54 AM
This will install everything. First connect to ssh.
Step 1: Install gnome:
Step 2: Install FreeNX: (It 's like VNC, but better!)
Step 3: Create the config and edit the FreeNX config to your ssh port (only applies if you changed the ssh port, which is recommended)
If you changed your ssh port:
Change the number from 22 to whatever your ssh port is
Step 4: Restart the freenx-server
Install the nomachine client on your computer and connect. Everything should be pretty straightforward from here.
If you want to browse the web, install firefox

Good, now we can use a server a good way!

About how much memory will use to run the DE?

If you have 256+ MB, you will run without problems!

Hm.... Not looking bad!
I may try it in my VPS since i don't like exploring files with the Shell

Have you tried it yet?

I installed both the Gnome and fleenx server.
But when I going to install Firefox, I get this error.
